Eliminate the anxiety of time. Enhance focus and concentration

Participants in the Pomodoro® Training Level 03 will apply the new practices of the Pomodoro® Technique to reduce the complexity of their goals and setup a weekly team timetable to reach multiple goals.

You'll learn how to transform deeply nested hierarchies of tasks into linear task lists and how to setup a weekly team timetable and a strategy capable of handling multiple goals, change, unplanned events and emergencies and meet your deadlines free from anxiety.

By the end of this training you will know how to: share with your team members the same point of view about what to do, optimise the interaction between team members needed to complete tasks, reduce the complexity of your goals and the related uncertainty of reaching them by learning to transform deeply nested hierarchies of tasks into linear task lists, meet deadlines without time pressure, create an effective team timetable to reach multiple goals, handle unplanned events, tasks, emergencies and change

Pomodoro Training

Pomodoro® Training Level 02 is a prerequisite for this training.

ABOUT THIS TRAINING LEVEL
Pomodoro Training

This training is the third of the four levels in the Pomodoro® Training Program.

In Level 01 and 02 we focused on how to manage time to reach individually one simple goal - a goal consisting of a linear series of tasks, without interdependencies, uncertainty and without change.

In this training we will see how to apply the Pomodoro® Technique to:

  • Deal with multiple goals.
  • Improve the productivity of your team.

We will learn how to encompass complex goals - goals consisting of deeply nested hierarchies of tasks, tasks dependent on other tasks, goals characterized by uncertainty and change.

In this training, Francesco proposes to participants to achieve two objectives:

  1. Setup a Pomodoro® weekly team timetable - this tool will make it simpler to define a strategy to reach multiple goals and handle unplanned events and tasks, emergencies, uncertainty and change.
  2. Transform deeply nested hierarchies of tasks into linear task lists - This will be the key tool to reach complex goals with less effort.

Achieving these objectives will enable you to meet your individual or team deadlines free of anxiety.

In this training Francesco will show you new Pomodoro® tools and practices, developed over the years working with his own team and the teams he mentored.

Participants will learn these new practices by applying them to reach their own real goals.

Your task will be to apply them in your your work life for 14 days.

Francesco will evaluate the results of your work with you and the other participants at the beginning of every session.

Q&A Productivity Clinic

The Pomodoro® Technique has been organically adopted by thousands of people across the world because it is so simple to use. Many participants of the course often have specific questions, usually variations of "How can I apply the technique when...?" To cater for this, one Pomodoro® of this session will be given over to a structured Q&A session working through your questions and queries.

Individual assignments are very important in this course. They are assigned at the end of each session. The following session starts with feedback on the individual assignments. Comparing to other training participants enables you to see solutions different from your own, to see contexts and problems different from your own and to receive useful feedback for achieving your own objective for the course.

In the final session, Francesco will hold a Productivity Clinic for checking with you whether you have achieved your objective for the course and showing you how to correctly apply what you have learned in your next project or next challenge.

Testimonials

Lee Sullivan

Management Analyst for The State of California

The world of my perceived possibilities and the utilization of my abilities has been enhanced to the level that I know that when I look back on my life there will be two significant periods of accomplishment, pre-pomodoro and post-pomodoro periods. It's just that powerful!

Teodor Manolov

Math & IT teacher

Speaking as a life-long knowledge junkie who has gone through dozens, if not a hundred self improvement training programs and books, the Pomodoro Technique Time Management Course is hands down one of the best training programs I have ever done, which have had the highest impact on my life. This course has helped me understand how to overcome productivity problems I have struggled with for years, it is the breakthrough I was looking for. I used to be intimidated by large projects and goals where I didn't know exactly what to do and how to do it, but now I am confident I can organize any complex goal, understand it like an X-ray, and create an effective plan of execution, where every pomodoro counts and there is no time waste or confusion. It is one of the very few courses, where I left MORE EXCITED than when I joined! I am very happy, satisfied and most of all HIGHLY IMPRESSED with Francesco's work, and I HIGHLY recommend his materials to anyone who is serious about improving their productivity.

Ann Wilson

If you struggle with time, and with being organized around time, this is the course for you! It will require an investment of time, of leaving yourself open to new ideas, or trying on new habits, but the reward will change your life!

Now that I've worked with Francesco directly, I'm an even bigger fan. I'm enthusiastic because this technique is simple and life-changing. The course helped me go into deeper related concepts built on the basic technique. Anyone who wants to streamline their day and their thinking would benefit from this tasty course. Anyone who struggles with feeling like they don't have enough time to get done what they want, whether on a daily basis or in terms of life goals, would do well to master this technique. I'm excited to see my business and life evolve with my new knowledge gained from this course.
