Personal Productivity Skills

Application deadline: January 25

Personal productivity skills begin with a positive attitude and good work habits, such as punctuality, dependability, efficiency and consistency. Other positive work “habits” include the ability to determine goals and set priorities. Being able to make decisions based on facts requires organizational skills such as scheduling, budgeting, arranging, adjusting, and delegating. This course was designed to respond to the need for continued personal development. Tasks no longer remain static and neither can civil society practitioners. Civil society practitioners must be able to keep up, which means they will need on-going training and skill development. This course will also provide additional personal management skills including coping with deadlines, following directions, adaptability and flexibility.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
• Define the key concepts associated with personal productivity.
• Identify the main obstacles that prevent you from maximizing your productivity.
• Lead Teams
• Become a More Effective Manager
• Coach and Influence

Course Methodology

This course will be delivered by certified trainers of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) using the IFC's training module tailored to meet the needs of civil society organisations.

Target audience

This course targets executive directors, programme officers, project officers, and administrators of NGOs, CBOs, FBOs, Networks, Youth Groups, associations and Women’s Organizations.
