Organize Yourself and Work Better with Others

Presented by: Porter Knight, Productivity Vermont

Friday April 4, 2014 from 9:00 am – Noon

Location: Library 201


Workshop Overview

The hours in a day are finite yet the demands on your time seem limitless.  How can you effectively get your work done when you’re pulled in so many different directions?  This workshop will put you back in charge of your day so you can focus on what’s important.  You’ll learn:

  • The one tool you need to make every day sane
  • Six steps to managing flow of paper and data
  • The real problem with email and how to conquer it
  • Five strategies to counteract the myths of time management
  • Three components of a “balanced” schedule

Once you’ve mastered your own productivity, how can you best interact with others?  Getting results is what matters.  But productive communications is more than getting people to do what you want – it’s a two-way street that requires thought and skill. We’ll teach you strategies to:

  • Manage expectations with two magic words
  • Hear and be heard every time
  • Cope with interruptions
  • Say “No” effectively
  • Minimize conflict and maintain your cool

Join us for this lively and interactive program.  We’ll include time for discussion so that you can plan how best to apply these ideas.  You’ll leave with tools you can put in place immediately for a more effective and peaceful work day.

*Though there is some new material, this workshop includes most of the core components that Porter Knight has presented in past years and in other formats, including:  GEARS of Organizing, RRRIPP through paper, RRRIDD yourself of email, TrueTime Planning.

*What’s in this session that is also in the Stress, Neuroscience & Productivity session: small reference to brain function, point of the decision, balanced scheduling, and dealing with conflict.
