Outlook Training – gain control of emails
This practical and hands-on training will provide you with the direction you need in order to deal with one of the major challenges of the modern workplace …… How to cope with the massive volume of e-mail communication that assails us on a daily basis.
The result for many people is they become overloaded and overwhelmed ! Further compounding this problem is that may people in today’s workplace have not received adequate (if any) email management training.
Recent studies reveal that most white collar workers spend 70% of their day on just three major activities – e-mail, meetings, and the constant search for new or stored information. Much of this time is wasted! In fact, the Wall Street Journal has reported that
“White collar workers waste 40% of their day not because they are not smart but because they were never taught the organising skills to function in the modern workplace!”
The Challenge for Your Business
Although e-mail and information overload is widely recognised as a problem, it tends to be accepted as a nuisance and a ‘cost of doing business’ without realising the severe impact it has on organisational performance, individual productivity and work-life balance. ……. So much of our e-mail and other information arrives as an interruption; uninvited, unexpected and burdening us with more tasks and what seems a constant flow of new “inputs” into our planning. However, most people are failing to use the capabilities in Outlook that can help them regain control through more effective email management
