    TASK OVERLOAD!

    About

    When unwelcomed change, conflicting priorities, and emotions are the norm, chances are better than good that you are experiencing task overload and increased stress. This webinar will demystify unwelcomed change, align task management with purposeful planning, and explore a practical decision-making model. When it’s just too much, a webinar like this comes along to save the day.

    LEARNING OUTCOMES
    • Ways to manage tasks purposefully, and a brief exploration how busy-ness impacts productivity
    • Demystify unwelcomed change, and reveal the correlation between emotions and conflicting priorities
    • Practical risk responses and time management tools to elevate from task manager to vision master

    INTERACTIVE EXERCISE
    • Activity 1 thru 3: Write out today’s, this week's, this month’s most important tasks
    • Activity 4: Prioritize a set of tasks based on a sample scenario
    • Activity 5: Use sort filters to organize tasks based on the level of urgency
    Note: All exercises are optional, and designed so that participants will gain knowledge (and be able to follow along) even if they choose not to participate in the exercises.
