Don't stress over interruptions and procrastination; learn how to effectively plan to get the most work done in your day.

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 live 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.
