Less stress. More confidence
Do you find yourself slowed down by mistakes? Even when you’ve checked your work, are mistakes still there?
You’re not alone! It is natural to make mistakes. But it needn’t be inevitable.
Developing your concentration, checking skills, and attention to detail means that you work accurately and get more done in your busy schedule. You’ll feel less stressed and more confident about your work.
Fewer mistakes mean getting more done in the time available. Mistakes waste valuable time and correcting errors often involves several people.
Taking remedial action to put things right takes up even more time. Getting things right first time, every time, has a big impact on productivity.
You'll explore how much mistakes are costing you and how to work more efficiently.
It’s difficult to concentrate when you are constantly under pressure, feel distracted and have to deal with interruptions.
When you feel stressed your brain doesn’t work effectively and you can’t think logically. It’s easy to make mistakes, or to forget to do things.
Learning how to ‘super-concentrate’ and manage stress and distractions means you work more accurately.
Accurate data handling
We know why people make transposition errors, omit data and read information incorrectly. The physical structure of the human eye and the way our brains perceive information can trick us into making mistakes.
We’ve developed proven, practical techniques that are easy to apply to all types of numerical data as well as information containing names and addresses.
You'll learn valuable data handling techniques.
Learn how to approach your checking with the optimum mindset and how to check effectively to find the mistakes.
Just reading through a document or email to check it isn’t enough. You need to apply a structured checking process to ensure all the vital elements of your message are correct.
You’ll learn how to create effective checklists too, and how to spot the flaws in the ones you’re currently using.

"Very engaging session, with lots of opportunities to share thoughts. Loved the breakout rooms as a bit of a different activity, and the chance to work with other attendees. Right amount of breaks :)"

"Greg made the course very engaging. The tasks and breakouts were a great way of starting to implement changes to the way I currently work and think about how I can get tasks done. It has been a very useful and valuable course."
