Juggling Multiple Priorities


Have you ever wondered how to get everything accomplished? Reports, meetings, evaluations, proposals--everything needs to be done NOW.  In order to decide what work is most important, you must know the specific outcomes you/your organization desire(s), and take those outcomes and break them down into daily roles and responsibilities. This program examines many different approaches to time management and introduces new techniques to enhance your approach in different situations. Practice tools for prioritizing tasks, setting boundaries, eliminating tainted time, and much more are included in this action packed program.


The participant will learn to: (1) prioritize work to support key results (2) use appropriate tools to organize and streamline work (3) overcome procrastination (4) identify time-wasters and apply time-saving techniques (5) interact effectively with people, manage interruptions, delegate, and maintain a support network, and (6) organize workspace by clearing out existing clutter and managing incoming papers.
