Strategies to Manage a Chaotic Workload
|Date / Time:
Information overload, plus mountains of paper, minus time, equals stress. By the time you've finished answering the phone, returning calls, wading through email, and prioritizing the stack of papers spilling out of your in-box, you hardly have any time left to do your actual work. Not to mention that you need a three-week vacation just to get your concentration back.
Without the skills needed to make your way through a typical crazy workday, you could very well find yourself drowning in a sea of data, documents and distress. Then you need to get the rest of your work done.
This webinar will give you core skills to get you ahead of the wave of work that comes at you every day. You will learn how to plan to get the most out of every day and week - and stick to it. Effectively schedule and track multiple meetings for multiple people. Create an effective visual system that gets results. Understand the negative effects of multitasking and how to be twice as productive at the end of your day. Deal effectively with procrastination and interruptions. Learn how much time you really have.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
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.
