"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


Maximizing Your Personal Productivity will show you how to do more in less time. You’ll learn how to increase your efficiency while maintaining (or improving) your quality of life. This productivity course expands upon the principles covered in Bob Pozen’s best-selling book Extreme Productivity and is designed to help  enhance your leadership and communication skills in any setting. You will also learn digital techniques that can help manage your career and your team.


Faculty lead the class through various hands-on exercises focused on efficient reading and writing. Prior to the course, you will also have an opportunity to complete an optional writing assignment and receive valuable personalized feedback. Multiple polls and self-evaluations are administered throughout the course with the goal of helping you better understand your individual goals and how to best accomplish them.


Pozen is joined by Ben Shields, MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer in Managerial Communication, who shares best practices on effective presentations and general communication strategies by way of interactive exercises. This session concludes with personalized feedback from faculty and peers so that you may feel more confident delivering clear messages in the future, whether in person or in a virtual setting.


This productivity course will also explore the unique challenges many are now facing working from home, providing helpful strategies to stay focused and productive despite the blending together of personal and professional worlds.
