Managing Multiple Priorities and Projects
- Time Management and Project Management Seminar
control of your time, your projects and your priorities!
For career-minded professionals like you, success can be a
double-edged sword. On one side, you excel at your job and are valued in
your organization. But with that comes increased responsibility. More work.
Additional projects heaped upon your plate. More demands on your time.
Everything and everyone cries out for your immediate attention.
Gets to be overwhelming, doesn’t it? You’ve got so much to
do, and it’s all considered “high priority” or “hot” or “URGENT!” Some days
you don’t even know where to start. And with e-mail, voice mail, instant
messaging and cell phones delivering information to you, the projects are
coming faster than ever before, with no end in sight.
To keep up with today’s enormous workload, you can’t
rely on yesterday’s skills.
Master the latest success habits.
Managing Multiple Projects and Priorities is an amazing new
workshop designed for the way professionals work today. Unlike similarly
titled programs that are a rehash of old ideas and outdated concepts, this
training is cutting edge and on-point, packed with the latest
project-management techniques and prioritizing tools. During the very first
few minutes of training, you’ll pinpoint old habits and behaviors that are
wasting your precious time and sabotaging your efforts, and you’ll start
replacing them with success habits all top achievers share.
Determine your true
priorities – and let the rest go.
You’ll discover how to establish priorities by setting
goals that will serve as your guide. You’ll also determine what is truly
important on the job and at home, so that you can begin letting go of the
nonessential tasks, activities and commitments that are crowding your
schedule and eating your time. What’s more, you’ll find out how to focus
your efforts where they’ll make the biggest difference in your results.
Handle project changes and emergencies with ease.
Projects change, glitches foul up the schedule, people
don’t perform, deadlines are shortened and everyone goes crazy as chaos
reigns, right? No more! You’ll learn fall-back formulas that factor in time
for human error, keys to making that “no way” deadline and strategies for
anticipating team and project problems so you can head them off. You’ll also
gain insight into the top reasons projects fail so you can avoid them from
the get-go. Find out how to keep from making mistakes when you’re under
pressure – and how to accurately gauge your pressure level so you can apply
instant stress reducers.
Become more productive, more effective and less
stressed — immediately.
Bottom line, the essential set of skills you’ll learn in
Managing Projects and Priorities will make a significant and immediate
impact on your daily productivity. You’ll find you have more time available,
that you’re doing more planning and less reacting, that you’re gaining
cooperation from those who were once resistant, that your priorities seem to
fall into place rather than compete for your attention. You’ll enjoy your
job more and experience far less stress because you’ll have the tools you
need to handle anything that comes your way.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to give your career
skills a major upgrade.
In just one day of training you’ll return to work armed
with tools, strategies and techniques that will drive your success for years
to come — we guarantee it!
