Our “Get Organized” workshop was developed and honed through coaching hundreds of business people to be more effective with one of their most important commodities – time. Paradoxically, poor organizational habits are often encouraged by the same technology that was designed to make us more effective! It is not uncommon for business people to spend most of their days swamped with e-mail, meeting requests and piles of paper. This typically results in a reduced ability to get work done, and is usually coupled with high levels of stress and even burnout.
This workshop will develop superior organizational skills by providing a simple, yet effective workflow system that is integrated with standard tools and technology such as Microsoft Outlook.
