Attention: HR & L&D Professionals Looking For Employee Productivity Training

Productivity Training For Remote & Co-Located Workers That Increases Focus, Reduces Procrastination And Improves Employee Output

How Busy, Overworked & Overwhelmed Professionals Can Take Back Control Of Their Time And Get The Job Done More Efficiently & More Effectively

Developed For Remote Delivery During Lockdown 2020

Dear Fellow People Development Professional, 

The Pace Of Change In The Modern Work Place Is Accelerating.  

Technological, social, political and even demographic influences are accelerating the rate at which your organisation and your employees need to react and adapt.

Your people probably have the ability to respond and adjust to the needs of your changing business environment.

But there are still many factors that cause even the most disciplined and devoted worker to stumble and even struggle.

It's highly likely your people will be dealing with one, some or even all of these problems of the modern day knowledge based work environment:

Email

Struggling With The Huge Volume Of E Mail Traffic That Ends Up Being A Complete And Utter Time Such

Meetings

Unable To Progress Their Own Work Because Of Endless Rounds Of Unproductive Real & Virtual Meetings

Distractions

Difficulty Focusing On Their Priorities Because Of A Constant Stream Of Trivial And Unnecessary Distractions

Procrastination

Constant Procrastination Whilst Faced With An Overwhelming Choice Of Things To Do So Precious Time Is Wasted

Doing Too Much

Huge Inefficiencies By Trying To Multi-Task and Juggle Too Many Projects So They Appear Busy But Little Gets Done

Fire Fighting

Forever Firefighting And Reacting To The Symptoms Of Problems And Challenges (Often Of Other People's Making)

Tight Deadlines

Routinely Under The Intense Pressure Of Last Minute Efforts To Meet Crucial Deadlines

Working Late

Regularly Working Late Into The Evening, Unable To Switch Off Because Of Working From Home

Unable To Focus

Difficulty Saying No To The Majority Of The Conflicting Demands So They Can't Focus On What's Important

When these build up, employee productivity is dramatically and negatively affected.

But more important, there is a huge cost to people's mental health and well being when they start to struggle under intense workloads.

Not only do you have a duty of care to ensure they are equipped to deal with the pressures of work...

You also have a moral obligation to give them the resources to help them cope.

I understand these challenges because I faced them too when I ran a Leadership Academy developing over 3500 leaders over 4 years in one of the UK's top 6 Energy Utility companies.

But I know they can be overcome with the right material, the right approach and the right presenter.

So when you get past these challenges then it is possible to help even the most resistant of your people to develop these peak performance productivity behaviours:

Your People Can Develop These Peak Performance Productivity Behaviours With The Right Productivity Training

They rapidly identify the most important thing that needs doing RIGHT NOW.


They have the discipline and focus to concentrate their efforts on what's most important.


When they start an important task, they focus on it until it's complete before moving on to the next task.


They have tamed the email beast so it works for them rather than being a slave to their inbox.


They are very clear on their own objectives and how they feed into meeting the objectives of the organisation.


They anticipate problems and put in effective solutions before they are needed.


They set challenging but realistic deadlines and ensure they keep them.


They have the courage to ignore trivial distractions and focus on what's important to the organisation.


They are someone you can ALWAYS count on to get things done on time to a high standard.


They work equally as well with others as they do on their own.


They plan their work and work their plan effectively and efficiently.


...They get the job DONE!


So If You're Responsible For The Growth Of Hardworking Professionals Who Struggle To Find The Time For The Learning & Development You Carefully Craft For Them, Then You're Going To Love This Productivity Training!

Testimonials From Previous Clients

Paul Bridle - CEO

"I have known Michael professionally for over 20 years and have always been impressed with his professionalism, passion, energy and enthusiasm as well as his in depth knowledge and understanding of his areas of expertise. 

It was for those reasons I invited him to work with our Academy to help our members deal with their most pressing problem - trying to stay focused in such a distracting and distracted world. 

I was looking for a fresh approach to bring new ideas to a busy and demanding audience.  Michael embraced the challenge, worked with us with new ideas and approaches and developed an outstanding live seminar and a series of supporting follow on webinars.  

I am delighted to say the response from our members has been overwhelming.  Not only did they find the approach we took convenient to their busy work lives, but they found Michael engaging, entertaining but more importantly, full of practical behaviours they could instantly apply. 

The most telling metric for me has been the feedback I have personally received about how participants have gone on to apply and benefit from what Michael shared.  

I can wholeheartedly recommend working with Michael."

Graeme Wilkinson - Director Avanti Learning Consultancy Ltd

"Michael, what a delight it was to host your outstanding Seminar: The Power of Focus to our audience of Excellence Squared Academy Members and guests in Edinburgh, yesterday.

The feedback was exceptional. The attendees loved not just the powerful and readily applicable learning points, but your energy, wholly appropriate humour and your encouraging and welcoming challenge and interaction.

From a logistic perspective, your pre event communication could not be bettered. I knew from your call to me, the passion you were going to have for delivering a quality work event to our demanding audience.

I cannot emphasise how much we enjoyed working with you and hope there are many opportunities to do so in the future. Thank you."

Mark Jesty EX-2 Group Toronto

"We brought Michael over to Toronto to deliver his Power of Focus seminar to some of my clients after I had heard about it from colleagues in the UK.  I knew his topic would be of massive value to my clients - struggling with time and workload pressures is a complaint I hear often.  

As someone who has sat in on hundreds of training sessions, I usually set the speaker up with the audience and leave them to it.  Michael's session was the first time in a very long time that I’ve stayed in the room for an entire seminar.  

I found his approach stimulating and thought provoking.  I thought the way he blended the latest neuroscience and performance psychology research with practical strategies that not only make sense but work too, was a masterclass is delivering cutting edge content to a demanding audience.  

We’ve already booked him to return to Toronto next year to work with more of our clients."

Frédéric André - Mekitapen Transformation, Learning & Development

"Michael came and delivered his excellent Power of Focus Seminar to a select group of my clients in Paris recently.  I was very impressed by his energy, enthusiasm and passion for his subject but also with his ability to gain and hold the attention of such a demanding audience.  

It is extremely rare to see a subject matter expert deliver such a practical, valuable and engaging live seminar without the use of powerpoint.  I was just as impressed with his ability to engage an audience and deliver valuable content in the follow up webinars.  

His advice was backed up by research and experiential activities  but more importantly, it was practical.  

Already I have booked Michael to come back and work with more of my clients later this year."

Bernard Berkein - Effi-Drive Smart Telematics

"I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days with Michael Tipper recently when he delivered his Power of Focus Seminar to clients in Brussels and Amsterdam.  

Comments from both groups were extremely positive with excellent feedback on the quality of Michael’s delivery and the value and relevance of his content.  

As well as being very engaging, it is clear Michael walks his talk (as can be seen on his podcast) and clearly understands how to share his experiences and help others practically apply and benefit from his advice.  

It was most refreshing to see just how engaging a presentation delivered just using colourful and well drawn flip charts can be."

Testimonials From Previous Participants

Maria L'Episcopo

PROJECT MANAGER, NATO HQ

“My name is Maria L’Episcopo and I attended Michael Tipper’s Power Of Focus seminar when he came to Brussels recently. I work at the NATO headquarters in Brussels.

I decided to attend because I always found myself staying at work longer than I'd intended to. This was causing pressure for me at home, especially as I have a young baby and so it was important for me to make some changes in how I work.

I loved the format of the Power Of Focus seminar. Half a day of live, face to face contact with Michael meant I could fit it into my busy schedule. Having the follow on webinars spread over the four weeks after the live event drip fed really valuable information to me in bite-sized chunks making it easy to apply and benefit from.

I was so impressed with the format that I told our HR department all training should be done this way.

I am pleased to say I now feel much more focused and in control of my workload and am now regularly going home on time and still managing to stay on top of things.”

Ricky Dibble

STATION COMMANDER
SCOTTISH FIRE AND RESCUE

"I attended your Power of Focus Seminar in Edinburgh recently and was really impressed by how you tied together relevant strands from conventional “time management”, performance psychology, neuroscience in a way that made complete sense to me. 

I really liked your Productivity Improvement Operating System and that will allow me to take the behaviour shifts you recommend and implement them into my own working practices.  

Perhaps the biggest penny dropping moment for me from what you shared was helping me gain clarity on what my Main Thing is. 

Overall I thought the Power oF Focus seminar was professionally delivered and contained many useful and practical strategies that will help me become more productive."

Wim Annerel

CERTIFIED PERSONAL & BUSINESS COACH

"I attended Michael's excellent Power of Focus Seminar in Brussels recently and I was also online for the series of supporting webinars that followed. There were two main things that stood out for me.

The first was the power of how Michael framed productive behaviours so they could be developed as long term habits. 

The second was the three powerful strategies Michael gave to reduce the massive number of things on my to do list down to just the important ones so I can stay focused and productive.

I have also applied Michael's strategies for dealing with email and I'm already seeing efficiencies that are saving me a considerable amount of time. 

Overall I have enjoyed the Power of Focus experience but more importantly I have benefitted from what I have applied."

Lee Webster

BUSINESS MANAGER, EMEA REGION, MFS INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

"After recently returning to work after having my second child, I felt the need to improve my productivity and so was delighted to attend Michael's recent Power of Focus Seminar in London.  I found the seminar extremely enlightening.  In particular the seminar helped me realise how much time I've been wasting by multi-tasking when I had previously always thought it was a useful way to approach work.

I was particularly impressed with Michael's tips on taming the e mail beast.  My company has an extremely high volume of e mail traffic and a culture of quick response and  I have implemented many of the strategies Michael recommended and they’ve been very helpful.  After listening to him talk about the importance of the Main Thing, I realised I was not clear on what mine was and so I could see a huge impact of that on my productivity.  I have been able to block out more of my time on important tasks and have educated my team on keeping me accountable for sticking with those blocks.

Overall I enjoyed the Power of Focus Seminar, was both stimulated and challenged by the content and am already seeing the results of changing my behaviours thanks to Michael."

Kasia K.

"Attending your Power Of Focus Seminar in Amsterdam recently was a huge eye opener for me.    After listening to you I went back and applied just a handful of the many things you shared and already, I am much more focused and have created far more effective plans for the achievement of my goals. 

Even after getting back to work, your suggestions made me aware of just how distracted and inefficient I had been despite putting tons of effort in.  I can remember saying “Oh My God! This is Terrible” once I realised just how bad things were. 

But having attended your Power of Focus Seminar I now have your Productivity Improvement Operating System (which I think is great by the way) to continually make small and manageable changes to ramp up  my efficiency and effectiveness on a daily basis.  And already I am seeing tangible improvements. 

Overall I thought the Power of Focus seminar was engaging, at times entertaining and a valuable use of my time."
