Managing Information and Communication Overload
Data, data everywhere but not a thought to think! Does too much paper, too much reading, and too much with which to keep pace diminish your enjoyment of life? If so, go from glut to gain. Learn how to win with information and not be deluged by it. Discover how to become your own information highway, use information for maximum gain, and keep the din at a manageable level so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy. This program is for organizations whose managers and staff members face a daily glut of too much competing for their time and attention, and offers essential tools for continual improvement.
Are You Overworked or Just Overwhelmed?
Career professionals can handle longer hours; it's everything else competing for your attention that leaves you feeling overwhelmed. Once you're overwhelmed, a feeling of being overworked can quickly follow. This program offers space, time, and stress management techniques that most people have never considered and innovative methods for daily effectiveness that anyone can master.
Managing Multiple Priorities
This is an era of belt-tightening where shrinking budgets are part of a long-term, not a cyclical, phenomenon. Many career professionals today are asked and expected to do more while not being afforded any greater organizational resources; such efforts can take their toll. Learn breakthrough processes in managing multiple priorities, including hand tools, power tools, and cerebral tools; the multiple-priority grid system; techniques for conditioning your environment; and other methods that enable you to achieve notable results.
Creating More Space and Time in Your Life
How would you like to have more time for friends or on hobbies, or to get away for more weekend trips? Merely living today and participating in society guarantee that both your time and mental, physical, and emotional energy will easily be depleted if you lack the proper vantage point from which to approach each day and conduct your life. Learn the principles for creating the space and time you want to have, and add back the fun.
Managing the Pace With Grace
Is today's typical working American overworked, underworked, energetic or lazy? The best answer is "none of the above." The root of the time-pressure we feel and the leisure we lack is not "too much work". There are larger, more basic, converging issues. We can handle longer hours; it's everything else competing for our attention that leaves us feeling overwhelmed. Once you are overwhelmed, feeling overworked can quickly follow. You can, however, maintain the pace with grace--even under pressure! This program is action-packed. Jeff lays out Breathing Space strategies and techniques for effectiveness that anyone can quickly master. For any organization seeking highest-level, on-going education.
