Proven Organization Strategies for the Efficient Administrative Assistant

Learn to contain the clutter and maintain a clean and well-organized work space to increase productivity.

As more and more demands are made on everyone's time at work and as the basic mantra for every organization becomes 'do more with less', you must become more efficient. This topic answers the question 'How do I do that? I'm already dancing as fast as I can.' To-do lists, complicated organizing tools, and 'working smarter' don't make it in today's high-pressure office. Learn simple, practical, and applicable approaches that can work for everyone. Move from the tactical to the strategic to get predictable results. Focus on what's most important, let go of time-wasters, and maximize your body's natural productivity cycle. Adopt proven approaches to minimize stress and get more done in less time. Take control of your working day and flex to adapt to the unexpected.
