Course Description


Get organized and regain control of your hectic life!
Let’s not mince words: You’re buried at work, right? Tons of e-mails to answer. Tons of crazy-impossible deadlines looming. Tons of projects on your ever-expanding to-do list.

And that desk — oh, that desk of yours. Do you sometimes look at it with utter dread, thinking that you only have two options: run away or strike a match?

Stop! There’s no need for extreme measures — help is at hand!

Our stress-busting, sanity-saving new workshop, Organization Skills for the Overwhelmed!, delivers practical tips, techniques, and strategies for getting organized and taking control — right away!

Tame your wild workspace (caution — people may wonder what’s gotten into you!)
Have you ever found yourself madly pawing through the clutter on your desk for something you desperately need NOW? The “find the needle in the haystack” game isn’t much fun for anyone ... and playing it too often is a sure-fire way to tarnish your credibility.

When you attend this training, you’ll learn:

  • How to break the urge to keep everything
  • A step-by-step method for turning piles into files
  • Desk-clearing techniques to make you look neat in just minutes
  • How to gain control of your desk, your storage systems, and even your walls
  • Effective alternatives to the “sticky note method” of remembering important things
  • How to make the most out of your workspace — even if it’s tiny!
  • What to do with all those unorganized e-mails you’ve been storing for months

Bottomline — you’ll know where everything that you need is, and you’ll learn how to identify what you don’t need so you can get that mess out of your life once and for all!

Learn how to master your Time and double your Effectiveness!
This training is focused on delivering the must-have skills you need to master your time and maximize your effectiveness. We’ll show you how to dissect your workday to see which activities are good time investments and which habits you’ve picked up are flat-out time-wasters.
