How to Minimize Time Wasters and Distractions

Gain tools and skills that are useful now and in future professional endeavors.

The ping of a new text message. The arrival of a new email. Professionals are aware of the most common interruptions to their workday, the impact of those disruptions, and even some methods for managing these intrusions. However, people are often unaware of the less well-known, yet equally sabotaging, time wasters and distractions. This course will help professionals discover these subtle impediments, identify ones that impact their workday, and decide how to address the most prominent ones. This fast-paced program highlights tools and skills that are useful now as well as in future professional endeavors.
