Benefits of A Better Workday

  • Take back control of your time

  • Refocus your energy on the work that matters

  • Improve productivity

  • Reduce stress

  • Spend more time on what’s valuable - at work and at home

Do you feel overwhelmed at work?

The modern workday is increasingly challenging as people struggle with noisy notifications, overflowing inboxes, packed calendars, and endless to-do lists. The result is that people are more stressed and more likely to experience burnout as they struggle to achieve their goals while maintaining work-life balance.

Having experienced burnout multiple times by the age of 30, I combined productivity tools with over 12 years of experience in project management and operations to create the “A Better Workday” programme. 

I know that you are time-poor, which is why “A Better Workday Essentials” is an online, self-paced time management course to help busy professionals take back control of their workday. It can be completed in less than 15 minutes a day. 

Transform your workday by taking back control of your time so that you can be successful while also looking after your wellbeing.

Who is this course for?

A Better Workday Essentials is for busy professionals who are looking to be successful while reducing unnecessary stress.

Whether you are an employee looking to progress your career or an entrepreneur looking to grow your business, this course will help you to spend more of your time on high-value activity and achieve your goals.

I found this online course of great benefit in helping me to identify my daily and weekly goals and focus on how I can achieve them. The magic is in the simple way that Niamh explains each section of the course and that each part is only 15 minutes. The activities given throughout makes the learning real and relatable to your day. I highly recommend this course to anyone who is struggling to manage their day to day tasks and is looking for a straightforward framework to help keep them on track.

Productivity Coach

Niamh Brady

Niamh’s interest in productivity began with her first job after college. She received a phone and a laptop but no advice on how to manage her time and effort. All around her, the people who seemed to be progressing were also the ones facing burnout. Niamh quickly fell into poor working habits and struggled to keep her head above water. Determined to break the cycle, Niamh tried and tested countless productivity methods and combined them with over a decade of experience in project management and operations, resulting in “A Better Workday”. Niamh defines productivity as “achieving what you intend to do in a manner which supports both the outcome and a person’s overall wellbeing”. With over 12 years of industry experience in the Technology sector and a young family, she has experienced the challenges of achieving work-life balance first-hand. Niamh is committed to making the information and tools to improve productivity available to every professional who is striving to improve how they work and live. She achieves this through individual coaching and the “A Better Workday” course and workshops.
