Become more intentional and productive

Blanchard believes that one of the most effective ways for workers to become more productive is to be intentional about their work—prioritising their tasks and focusing on the most important and urgent tasks, whilst eliminating distractions.

Blanchard programmes teach the skills necessary to improve job performance and advance in today’s changing marketplace—including how to:

Navigate unclear expectations

Gain clarity about what is expected and how to align work with the organisation’s goals.

Effectively manage time

Manage time effectively, especially when faced with a large workload and multiple competing priorities.

Maximise limited resources

Deal with limitations in terms of the available resources and support that can make it difficult to complete work effectively and efficiently.

Manage stress

The pressure to perform and meet or exceed expectations can lead to high stress levels and burnout among workers, which can negatively impact productivity and success.
