Flow-Working Training: the art of effortless, highly-focused workdays | Volkshaus | Saturday, 20. October 2018

Are you as focused and effective as you would like to be?
The ability to focus and be effective has never been harder. We're all pulled by incessant demands, unimportant tasks, and disturbances of our time and energy. Distractions, perfectionism, and information overload costs us around 145 work days lost each year. 

Flowstates are a super-power. Compared to ordinary startes of mind, our brain’s creativity increases by 2x, productivity by 5x, while feeling calm and relaxed (McKinsey research). Even if you already are a high achiever.
Working in Flow, we enter our deepest focus, forget the sense of time, and enjoy a feeling of effortlessness. Working feels easy and enjoyable.
In this training you will learn and apply a unique, proven system to enter Flowstates, manage your mind and systematically have a great workday everyday.
You will not have to lose a day of work. The day includes 2 hours to get your own work done - almost equivalent to 8hrs of productivity at the office - to apply the techniques.
You will also enjoy stretching, meditation and light fitness, to stay energized all day, and after!
You will meet & network with likeminded. 
For brain-workers, professionals, entrepreneurs, creatives.

Although I am seen as quite the productive person in the teams that I work with, attending Antoine’s Trainings and Boostcamps ups my productivity game every time. Highly recommended to all brain workers, professionals and entrepreneurs! 
Inga, Managing Director 

What is Flow-working™?
Flow-working™ is a new method of effectiveness training designed to create hyper-focused, almost effortless work days.
Companies like Google are training their employees in Flowstates. We believe Flow is the number 1 factor for wellbeing and high-performance at work.
Do you remember being so immersed and energized by an activity that you forgot about time?
Based on a neuroscientific approach, Flow-working™ allows you to tap into a state that enables you to get things done with less effort, focus deeper for longer, feel more energy, boost your happiness, overcome work overload, perfectionism, and procrastination, prioritize with clarity, and essentially become “undistractable”.
In this one-day training, you will learn the Flow-working™ technique and how to apply it to your everyday work to help save you dozens of work days each year.

More than 120 Events and retreats

Who is it for?
The training is for anyone who wants to improve their focus, performance, and overall health and wellbeing.
The Flow-working™ technique can be used by all brain-workers: professionals, entrepreneurs, executives, researchers, freelancers, writers, creatives.
This session is open to both individuals and teams of up to 15 people.

The schedule: what you will learn
“When it comes to getting things done and creativity, some call Flow a superpower.”
The day will be divided into a practical training-workshop (5 hours) and flow-work time (2 hours) and include wellbeing adctivities throughout the day. Guided step by step, we will teach you:

Flow-work time (2 hours):
Practice and apply the techniques learnt in the training session on your own work. You will be working with full privacy. You’ll undertake work on what matters to you with exceptional focus and clarity.
Two hours of effective-work is about what the average person achieves in 8 hours at the office.
Wellbeing (throughout the day):
Learn to relax and energize through stretching, short meditation, and movement. Often participants finish the day with more energy than they started!

The research
People who enter Flowstates or “being in the zone” while working are reported to:

increase creativity by 2-6 times;

Increase productivity by 2-5 times;

Feel more calm and relaxed throughout the workday.

(Source: McKinsey research).
In “Flowstates”, the brain takes in more information per second and processes it more deeply.
Flow is also our optimal state of happiness and probably the most sought-after mental state.

The returns of effectiveness training
Effectiveness training has one of the highest ROI of any skill sets.
People who train their effectiveness skills by

+10%: Recover 5 weeks per year,

+30%: Recover 14 weeks per year,

for life. Most of us have a potential for doubling or tripling (+100 to +200%) our effectiveness levels.
Can you afford not to train yourself and your team?

How often do you/your team achieve a flowstate?
Work consumes most of our mental energy. It is hard to be consistently productive. The brain worker is interrupted every 11 minutes. Deep-focus has become a rare and increasingly valuable skill.
Companies lose 69% of each salary paid to personal ineffectiveness. 80% of employees are not engaged with their work. Overbusiness, information overload, and overwhelmedness are at an all time high.
Obstacles to effective and productive work increases stress levels and unhappiness.
This training is for people who believe that learning to enter Flow is a life-changing mental ability that anyone can master through training. We make our work less effortful, save hours of work each day, and make our workdays fulfilling.
“The neuroscience of Flowstates is revolutionizing our focus, wellbeing and performance at work.”
