Managing Your Time and Your Priorities: A Matter of Efficiency and Credibility

COVID-19 turned our personal and professional lives upside down overnight. If our pre-coronavirus world was one of information overload, constant interruptions and keeping all the balls up in the air at all times, we’ve doubled down in recent months as we’ve wrapped our head around a host of new technologies, embraced the work-from-home transition and done our best to attend to family responsibilities in the middle of a workday.

The end result? The beast that is time management is even harder to tame. How do you deal with intrusions and still maintain your productivity? How do you keep your inbox organized so you don’t let any important emails slip through the cracks? How can you stick to a routine while still being flexible enough to deal with the inevitable changes that arise?

This course will help you acquire and put into practice a set of techniques that are proven to enhance time and priority management, so you can be a more efficient, more reliable and more resourceful team member.
