Organizational Skills


Learn how to get organized for your brain type and work style. Once you identify your work style and build your organizational systems around it, you become organized and stay that way. When you are organized, you are more likely to meet deadlines. You will stay more focused on your project and spend less time searching for the information you need to accomplish your work. 'Increasing Your Productivity: Improve Your Organizational Skills' is an interactive seminar that teaches you how to get more done in a day and avoid the pitfalls of timewasters. Managing your calendar, your workspace and your meetings all lead to increases in productivity and allow you to recapture 'lost' time.


This seminar is designed for anyone who currently manages a project and those who are soon to assume management roles.
