Managing Work Without Working to Manage 

Thursday, April 11 | 2:30pm - 3:45pm 

Session Description:

Do you ever leave work with your to-do lists half-finished? Do you get stuck moving forward with new programs and projects because of your bottomless in-box? Are you constantly dealing with a stream of minor crises only you can handle or are your endless emails, phone calls, and interruptions leaving you wondering, “will I ever get caught up?” This session will share proven workflow management techniques that will help participants get caught up and start getting ahead. They will learn how to work strategically and organized, adding more value within their agencies. Feel less stressed, and best of all, get those high-priority items done! It's no secret that successful people are those who have learned a system to manage organization techniques and work flow. Don't keep letting interruptions, paper chases, and phone calls derail the workday. Participants will learn to take control of their workflow!
