Design Your Workflow

Leveraging Technology for Relaxed Focus and Control


Working with entrepreneurs at the Parisoma startup incubator in San Francisco

Overview

Our custom-designed workflow prototyping materials

In this workshop, participants learn how to design their own personalized workflow - an integrated system of habits, techniques, tools, and strategies to manage their responsibilities and priorities at all levels.

We help participants turn information overload and last-minute emergencies into opportunities, by engaging with their priorities systematically, instead of ad hoc. By understanding the psychological principles that underlie their productivity, participants learn how to balance day-to-day control with long-term focus by leveraging proven organizational methods.

We guide the group through selecting and customizing the strategies and tools best suited to their individual needs, and conclude with a debrief and discussion on other ways of applying these ideas to their work.
