Managing Multiple Priorities & Projects

Gain control of your time, your projects and your priorities!

For career-minded professionals like you, success can be a double-edged sword. On one side, you excel at your job and are valued in your organization. But with that comes increased responsibility. More work. Additional projects heaped upon your plate. More demands on your time. Everything and everyone cry out for your immediate attention.

Gets to be overwhelming, doesn’t it? You’ve got so much to do, and it’s all considered “high priority” or “hot” or “URGENT!” Some days you don’t even know where to start. And with email, voice mail, instant messaging and cell phones delivering information to you, the projects are coming faster than ever before, with no end in sight.

To keep up with today’s enormous workload, you can’t rely on yesterday’s skills.

Master the latest success habits.

Managing Multiple Priorities & Projects is an amazing workshop designed for the way professionals work today. Unlike similarly titled programs that are a rehash of old ideas and outdated concepts, this training is cutting edge and on-point, packed with the latest project management techniques and prioritizing tools. During the very first few minutes of training, you’ll pinpoint old habits and behaviors that are wasting your precious time and sabotaging your efforts, and you’ll start replacing them with success habits all top achievers share.

Determine your true priorities — and let the rest go.

You’ll discover how to establish priorities by setting goals that will serve as your guide. You’ll also determine what is truly important on the job and at home, so that you can begin letting go of the nonessential tasks, activities and commitments that are crowding your schedule and eating your time. What’s more, you’ll find out how to focus your efforts where they’ll make the biggest difference in your results.

Handle project changes and emergencies with ease.

Projects change, glitches foul up the schedule, people don’t perform, deadlines are shortened and everyone goes crazy as chaos reigns, right? No more! You’ll learn fallback formulas that factor in time for human error, keys to making that “no way” deadline, and strategies for anticipating team and project problems so you can head them off. You’ll also gain insight into the top reasons projects fail so you can avoid them from the get-go. Find out how to keep from making mistakes when you’re under pressure — and how to accurately gauge your pressure level so you can apply instant stress reducers.

Become more productive, more effective and less stressed — immediately.

Bottom line, the essential set of skills you’ll learn in Managing Multiple Priorities & Projects will make a significant and immediate impact on your daily productivity. You’ll find you have more time available, that you’re doing more planning and less reacting, that you’re gaining cooperation from those who were once resistant, that your priorities seem to fall into place rather than compete for your attention. You’ll enjoy your job more and experience far less stress because you’ll have the tools you need to handle anything that comes your way.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to give your career skills a major upgrade.

In just a few hours of training, you’ll be armed with tools, strategies and techniques that will drive your success for years to come — we guarantee it!
