MAX Personal Productivity Skills focuses on developing the processes and skills required to enable an individual to transform their productivity.

At Maxima Training we have worked with many organisations helping their people to maximise sustainable productivity. The battle ground in business in the 21st century is productivity. What can you and your team achieve from one hour working in your business verses what can one of your competitors and their team achieve working for one hour in their business. Many people work hard and long hours, if that is all you need to do to be successful and happy then life would be easy. People are always busy, but busy with what? The truth is, it’s not the hours you work, but the focused work you put into the hours you work.

We have designed this programme to be highly motivational, practical and focused on enabling your people to maximise their personal productivity

What makes competitors equal is 24 hours in a day. What makes the difference is how you use each and every one of your hours v them.

I am about to go home for the day, and I can confirm my Q1 list is complete and I have had an hour set aside today for some serious in-roads into Q2 list. Plus, my desk is now de-cluttered and I work on one thing at a time and that's the only thing on my desk!"
