Get Tasks Done Training

Most individuals feel that their days are consumed with all the unavoidable external factors we must deal with each day, such as meetings, email, mail, phone calls, interruptions, and crises. Thus, most people aren't able to get done what they want to get done. Developing a way to track tasks and action items provides more control over those external factors and helps you focus on what you want to get done. Tracking tasks also reduces stress because you don’t have to worry about what you might have forgotten. It also helps you manage time more effectively by planning time in your day or week to get priorities accomplished.




In this training, we discuss how you can best manage, track and accomplish action items. In depth instruction is provided on how participants can use their electronic productivity tool, (i.e. Outlook or Lotus Notes), to more effectively manage their tasks. Participants will also learn how to set attainable goals and prioritize. To support time management goals, participants will also learn how to prioritize and plan their day/ week. Upon completion of the class each participant will develop commitments and an action plan.
