Welcome to 'Increasing Effectiveness'

Our psychology affects everything we do. As well as our mood, and relationships, it drives the way we approach situations, and the way we perform. And yet few of us are taught how to make the most of it.

The course explains in everyday language how our psychology works, and introduces tips and techniques can be used every day (for yourself or with others) to be more effective by ...

getting problems in perspective, and clarifying outcomes and actions

being clear about what is in your control

approaching problem solving creatively

planning medium term goals effectively

managing time better

In the programme, Chris Grimsley shares models and techniques drawn from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming, a practical approach to psychology and communication) and other approaches that help us understand how we 'tick', and what drives our behaviour and performance. Developed from over 20 years training and coaching, this is the material that has made many people say "Why has no-one told me this before?!"

Section 1 looks at how our perception works, and explains how our perception affects our thinking, our thinking affects our feelings, and both affect our behaviour.

Section 2 introduces us to some top tips and techniques for working with problems and goals, that when applied can transform our own lives, and the lives of people around us.

Section 3 includes techniques to improve planning, by starting with the end in mind.

Section 4 shares a simple but effective time management tool.

Section 5 introduces a creative problem solving strategy
