Time Management & Organization Skills for Professionals
Say goodbye to the stress, pressure and frustration that come from being disorganized and rushed for time!

Program Description:
One-Day Seminar

Dear Professional:

Work smarter instead of harder with a time management system you’ll design! We’ll show you how ...

Are you working harder and longer than ever before, trying to keep up with an increasingly demanding workload? Most professionals are! You know the drill: You come in early, stay late, take work home, do two things at once — but your “to-do” list just keeps getting longer and longer!

Your calendar is jammed with commitments. Your workspace is shrinking because of the piles of paperwork you need to get to. You’re stressed out, frustrated and overwhelmed because you don’t see any end in sight to your growing workload.

Sound all too familiar? Then take heart! We’ve developed a practical new approach to organizing your time, a one-day workshop called Time Management and Organization Skills for Busy Professionals.

Get more done in fewer hours with a time management system YOU design! The trouble with traditional time management theories, we’ve found, is that they’re one-size-fits-all. No wonder they don’t work! That’s why the heart of this radically different program is a time management plan that YOU will design for yourself —­ allowing you to build in the flexibility you need to meet work and home commitments.

In addition, you’ll learn how to ...

  • Organize anything from a messy desk to towering piles in 3 basic steps
  • Take action with “next-step thinking” to get tasks accomplished —­ instead of putting them off
  • Boost productivity by identifying and eliminating time-eating habits and organizational hurdles
  • End procrastination, perfectionism and other time traps forever!
  • Say goodbye to missed deadlines by accurately estimating how long projects will take

Regain control of your time and conquer clutter by getting organized! This workshop’s unique two-pronged approach combines time management and organization skills to offer you “the best of the best” techniques, tools and tips for taking command of your workday. We’ll show you how to clear the clutter in easy steps, how to organize your files and stop being a slave to sticky notes. Think what a relief it will be to walk into an organized workspace every day —­ instead of the messy piles and stacks that greet you now!

Take the next step: Make the decision that will change your life and enroll today. “Next-step thinking” is a cutting-edge, time management technique you’ll master in this workshop, one that moves you from inaction to action – and success.
