Please register before May 15th.  After registering, you will receive an access code for the CliftonStrengths® online assessment, which you’ll need to complete before the workshop (and ideally before May 18th).   Plan on about forty minutes of uninterrupted time to complete the online assessment.

You will receive a copy of David Allen’s Getting Things Done book at the beginning of the workshop.

The 2019 workshop will be a good refresher for those who have some previous experience with GTD from either taking a workshop or reading the book, but is also suitable seeking an introduction to GTD. 

This year’s workshop will not include hands-on lab time for setting up your GTD system, nor will it focus on specific tools/software.  It will include a short demo of a GTD system using Microsoft products, such as OneNote and or Outlook.
