Procrastination is one of the most expensive invisible cost in business today. A recent study of 10,000 U.S. employees polled, revealed that the average worker self-admitted to wasting over 1 hour each day on non-job-related activities. That adds up to over 5 hours per week, which is 12.5% of the work week.
The result is that assignments are rushed, work quality is below par and a rollover effect occurs that delays related work by others. Costs to business have been estimated at $600 billion for US companies alone.
Our corporate programs are offered through half day or full day interactive seminars either on site or at a site of the company’s choosing. We perform evaluations on each employee to provide an in-depth understanding of the type of procrastination each individual faces.
We teach a series of different interventions for each type. They learn methods to change their patterns of procrastinating. The new patterns are then reinforced using our interactive software.
The program begins with an assessment of the individual by utilizing a range of measures to pinpoint his or her specific type of procrastination. Once it is identified, we then teach the tools to overcome the elements which hold him or her back.
Your specific form of procrastination can be reversed. It may take on the form of being easily distracted. If so, then having clearly defined goals and a system to reinforce those goals may be what you need to stay on track. Perhaps you consistently miscalculate how much time is needed to complete a task. A keen focus on time estimation could be the method that gets this issue under control.
Change does not always come easily. That is why we concentrate on neutralizing your blocks to change as well as techniques and practices to change your specific behavior.
It is very difficult to become the person you wish to be if you do not have a plan on how to get there. Thus, in order to help you change the patterns of behavior that have a negative impact on your productivity, we provide structured tasks to undermine the thoughts and activities that lead you to deflect your responsibilities.
Getting beyond the behaviors that have a negative effect on your life will not happen in a day. That is why we provide a combination of proprietary software and personal contact to support and reinforce new patterns of behavior. As procrastination can come from a sense of being overwhelmed we break tasks down into their components, allowing you to focus on one task at a time and when it is best for you to start it. By inputting this information into our online program you will receive the reminders and motivation to move forward.
