Minimize Interruptions At Work
|Date / Time:
Studies show that the average worker is interrupted every eight minutes. The same studies reveal that 15% of the interruptions are important, while the remaining 85% are a waste of time.
Is your day a string of interruptions? Find it hard to ignore that "Got a minute?"
Let's face it. If you're a valued member of your organization you can count on the fact that you'll have numerous things competing for your time and attention. You can't get rid of workplace interruptions (or your boss, your co-workers or your clients), but you can minimize them.
Don't let routine interruptions derail your day.
There's only one sure-fire way to eliminate workplace interruptions altogether: resign. If that's not an option, attend this webinar and learn valuable techniques for preventing some interruptions while reducing the time it takes to handle the rest.
Join us and you'll learn:
- A simple technique to get your boss to stop interrupting you
- The "Norm of Reciprocity": How your interactions with your co-workers may be giving them a legitimate excuse to interrupt you
- "Soft addictions" that rob you of valuable time on a routine basis
- Subtle but unusual ways to let people know to leave you alone: Bluetooth helmets, Do Not Disturb signs and baseball caps
- Crash course in assertiveness to say "no" and mean it
- How headphones and your choice of music may be more distracting than soothing
- Ins and outs of being a traffic cop to control paperwork, emails, and voice-mails
- How the Zeigarnik Effect (the psychological tendency to remember an uncompleted task rather than a completed one) could be making you lose sleep at night
- Three Minute Rule for adding things to your to-do list
Interruptions are a fact of life. Learn everything you need to successfully deal with routine interruptions by joining us for Minimize Interruptions at Work, and get back to work — and up to speed.

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
