Discover practical tools that change how you feel about work
how it works
Working Smarter teaches a series of easy to use, practical tools to help you and your team work smarter.
Simple and powerful techniques help you feel more engaged and in control of your work: spend less time on email and in meetings, and more on your most important work.
Accessed through in-person or remote workshops, or via self-guided elearning, the tools have a measurable impact on the way people work: 9 out of 10 people say the tools help them.
By helping your team identify alternative behaviours we can change how they feel and what they believe about their work. Across all participants the programme has doubled the number of people rating themselves effective or wholly effective from 31% to 64%.
Good for all levels
The programme can run at any level in an organisation: from senior leaders and managers to junior grades. From peers working in similar roles to discrete teams seeking to work better together. We recognise people at all levels experience feelings of overwhelm caused by high volume, high velocity working. People in any role can struggle to find time to get to their important work.
The outcomes you can expect from the programme:
- Feeling more in control of your work.
- Making space for the important stuff.
- Feeling confident and engaged.
- Becoming more effective.
Your team already work hard, now they can learn to work smarter
The Working Smarter toolset can be taught in person or remotely, in group and individual workshops, cascade programmes or via a suite of elearning modules. Working Smarter doubles the number of highly effective people in teams, and net promoter score increases on average by 39 points (from -12 to +27).
The solutions are affordable and scalable, and can be readily adapted to your needs.

Bristol City Council
As with all councils, Bristol had a constant demand to provide consistently high quality services at reasonable cost, at a time when resources were under pressure. Participants in our programme doubled their productivity and the number of effective people trebled.
University of Warwick
The University of Warwick’s Development and Alumni Engagement Team grew significantly following investment. They were looking for practical training to embed expectations and a behaviours framework, to help new and existing staff succeed. So we trained the whole team to Work Smarter.
