The Path to Productivity for Educators

The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity combines timeless principles with current neuroscience research to help educators make better decisions to consistently make choices that give the greatest return on time. Our jobs bring a wave of high-pressure demands —which can be overwhelming and exhausting. FranklinCovey’s research of more than 350,000 people worldwide shows that they feel they are spending at least 40% of their time on unimportant things. In this course participants learn to make high-value decisions using the 21st Century time management skills combined with a powerful planning process. It provides shifts in thinking and behaviour that will help you accomplish what is most important.

The 5 Choices Solution

The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity process measurably increases productivity of teachers, headteachers and schools. Participants learn to make better choices about where to invest their valuable, attention and energy. Better time management is no longer sufficient because of the continuous high-pressure demands in education. Yet, every person has the potential to be great and deliver outstanding results. To get these results, we need to do the right things which require the skills of decision management, energy management and time management.
