NEW for 2014


"Since the Great Recession, many professionals have been facing more challenging schedules and more daunting to-do lists. This makes it all the more important for professionals to be able to get their work done quickly and effectively."
Bob Pozen, Faculty Director

Counting the hours you spend at work makes no sense for professionals; their contribution should be judged by what they achieve. Yet so many organizations still bill by the hour, or emphasize face time in the office. Maximizing Your Personal Productivity will show you how to get more done in fewer hours, so you have more time to spend with your family, or in any other activity. It includes many practical suggestions about how to improve your productivity. The program encourages self-evaluation through polls and surveys about your work habits and provides ample opportunities for learning through doing.


Faculty Director Bob Pozen is the former President of Fidelity Investments and Executive Chairman of MFS Investment Management. Bob was first interviewed about his own productivity when he was full time chairman of a large asset manager and carrying a full teaching load at a distinguished university. That interview went viral on the blogs, so he wrote a short book (Extreme Productivity), drawing upon his personal and professional experiences.
