Managing Multiple Projects Competing Priorities and Tight Deadlines On-Site Training

This on-site training class is also available as Public Schedule Seminar.

Discover how to handle the many projects on your plate ... even conflicting ones ... without the bottlenecks, burnout, and stress-intensive scenarios you're experiencing now!

Course Description/Agenda

Dear Busy Professional:

If you are good at what you do on the job ... if you are a conscientious, committed professional ... two things will be true: (1) you’ll get more to do, and (2) you’ll want to do it all well. That’s when the vicious cycle kicks into action.

A few projects turn into many, with demands that overlap and often even conflict. The ball gets dropped in a critical project phase and schedules are compromised ... deadlines loom larger and are mercilessly inflexible. Then comes a new week, filled with routine responsibilities ... plus new expectations and deadlines. But there are projects carried over from last week still to
complete! Tension mounts among team members ... anxiety and stress affect concentration and communication ... errors result in still more delays and scheduling complications ... and on and on and on.

If being good at your job and wanting to do well results in this, who needs it, right? Fortunately, the answer is: It doesn’t have to be that way!

Managing Multiple Projects, Competing Priorities & Tight Deadlines guarantees delivery of the skills you need to immediately and effectively deal with multiple projects, expectations, and deadlines ... even conflicting ones ... without the backlog, burnout, and stress-intensive scenarios you are experiencing now. After only one day away from work, you’ll return knowing how to:

  • Control the priority push that seems uncontrollable now
  • Cope with external and internal pressures to perform the realistic as well as the unrealistic
  • Deal patiently and positively with coworkers when tension is high and morale is low
  • Meet demands with chaos-defeating prioritizing tools
  • Organize yourself with systems that eliminate time-wasters and unproductive habits
  • And much more!

The vicious cycle of need-it-now deadlines or conflicting expectations and multiple demands doesn’t have to continue. You can make it a “success cycle” by attending Managing Multiple Projects, Competing Priorities & Tight Deadlines ... we guarantee it!
