The Commitment

The Productive Leader is all about making the most out of precious leadership and management resources.
The programme is designed to enable  teams to reduce waste and variation in personal work processes and focus their efforts on value adding activities that make a difference to their organisation. By adopting evidence-based best meetings practice and more effective email management, we calculate that a chief executive or director could release around 20 per cent of their time for other activities.
But this is not a quick fix. You and your team need to commit time and effort if these benefits are to be realised. 
Your investment

The role of the executive sponsor is to commit time and effort to the programme by driving engagement at every level - which could take up to 16 hours in total - up to 20 if the sponsor is participating in the programme

As a leader or admin staff participant in The Productive Leader, you will need to invest around 20 hours over the period of the programme implementation.  This includes the pre-work, the self-development modules and attending the facilitated sessions.

Project managers and facilitators could spend up to 15 hours per week in the early stages of the programme. We recommend that the people you select to plan and faciliate the programme have both the capability and capacity - please contact us to discuss this further. (see the FAQ and the Executive Leader Guide for more details of these roles).
