Stress. It’s a killer. It kills job satisfaction, employee engagement, and more. The biggest causes of workplace stress are bad people management and bad time management. Individual employees can do little about the former, but they have far more control over the latter than they imagine. Steven B. Levy, a former Microsoft senior leader and the author of numerous books on business, will show you many simple and practical tool, tips, tricks, and techniques for effective time management. - How do you keep from drowning in email? - To-do lists that work (and why different people require different types of to-do lists). - Identifying and taking advantage of your daily periods of greatest (and least) productivity. - Seven rules for highly effective meetings. (Some of these rules work even when you’re not the one running the meeting.) - The difference between urgent and important – and how to use the difference to set priorities that work for both you and your manager. - Understanding which forms of communication to use with different people. - A scientific method to receiving assignments that minimizes wasted time and mistakes. This highly interactive and entertaining session, filled with practical tips and delivered with humor, will help employees take back control of their time. Less stress. More sanity. And no more going home feeling it’s piling up faster than you can unpile it. Meeting planners: Please feel free to contact me for a free copy of my book The Off Switch.
