Whom this course is for:

Those legal professionals who want to become high performers.

Let's face it, being a legal professional comes with a lot of pressure and demands on your time and as a result, your wellbeing.

But what is a 'high performer'? We all know those people who simply get more done in the same amount of time, or who are just more effective, or efficient at doing the same tasks. High performers simply produce more, by being more efficient and effective with their time than their counterparts. As a result, these high performers are able to get ahead faster than other people.

Is it time to reclaim your day? To reclaim your life? Take back control? Is it time to live your life with a true sense of purpose?

Be honest about it. Because it’s going to dictate whether or not you’re going to ever reach your full potential.

Graduates of the Productivity Academy:

“I’ve found the insights into distraction and procrastination to be very relevant. The Alignment module has helped to give me real clarity. I also love the practical, ‘take the bull by the horns' approach with this program. It’s given me the tools I needed.” - Philip Graham, Watermark International

“The Productivity Academy has quickly put things into perspective, because I often feel like a dog chasing it’s own tail. I’m learning lots about myself and the strategies I must implement to actually bring back control in my life. From the first module I’ve already done lots of practical things to get rid of distractions. I’ve also been starting each day using the “Daily Output Booster” and this has made a massive impact on my productivity!” - Marcin Michalak

“The Productivity Academy has really upgraded my thinking and results. Initially, I was a little bit hesitant because I’ve been in leadership roles for many years and didn’t want to hear the same old ideas I’ve heard before. But right from the first module the Productivity Academy helped me to get clear on my next level of effectiveness. The content is fresh, practical and personal. The architecture of the program has been beautifully designed for the user experience. This is a sophisticated product for smart people. The program has helped me feel back in control and I’ve been able to implement more strategic initiatives than ever before. ” - Kylie Ross, Suncorp Personal Insurance

"The program was really helpful and to be honest, a bit of a wakeup call to make me realise how ineffectively I have been using my time. [Colin] explained my exact thought process, where I thought I was being really organised for the first few weeks and then just slowly became lazier and lazier. There is at least one thing out of each module that I can take away to help me prioritise my time better. I particularly found the 90 day plan, weekly planning/daily output booster and the decision flow for emails helpful. Also just being a bit more aware and conscious of how my brain operates and how spending more time on planning will actually help me use my time more effectively." - Ali Tope, RACT
