Do you find yourself constantly checking your email? Then wishing or praying that you could just stop? If you’re like most of us, you’ve tried to break the email addiction. However, within a few days, sometimes just a few hours, you’re hooked again and back to compulsively checking your email. Managing your email feels elusive, at best, and more often completely hopeless.
Time management training and productivity training are common terms that are often used interchangeably throughout conversations with our potential clients. There is often confusion between the two types of training. However, understanding the differences between time management training and the advantages and disadvantages of each will make it easier for you to determine which type of training is right for you.
Email can be a convenient means of communication, but it can also add stress to our daily lives. Some of this is unavoidable. If you receive dozens or hundreds of emails on a daily basis, it’s bound to stress you out. But some people just don’t know how to email well. They consistently use poor email habits that only make email overload worse. Since email is such an important means of communication, you can’t afford to be one of those people.
Productivity tools can be divided into two camps – those that work for you and those that don’t work for you. Wasting your time and energy searching and trying various apps is frustrating and unproductive.
There are thousands of productivity best practices and tools available today. The sheer number of productivity strategies, tools and apps can make identifying which one will work for you time intensive and overwhelming – the last things you want if you are trying to find a few more minutes in your day and improve your productivity.
Your team members are the lifeblood of your organization. Investing in training and developing them is a strategic investment in your organization. And, with any strategic investment, you’re going to research different training and development companies to find the one that best meets your unique goals and objectives.
