Accomplishing More with Less, Thursday, July 25, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Franklin Lobby 1 Conference Room

If you feel bombarded by nonstop email and overwhelmed by constantly changing priorities, this fun and engaging workshop might be just what you need to learn new ways to approach your work.

The workshop provides breakthrough techniques for managing your time and priorities as well as organizing your to-do lists, email and documents. Goals include learning to:

  • Better manage interruptions and stay focused while still being responsive to the needs of your team members.
  • Work more strategically instead of working harder, manage competing priorities and better align daily activities with your goals.
  • Become invigorated and re-energized in the workplace and elsewhere.

The class is facilitated by Pierre Khawand, who founded People on the Go in 2000 to help business professionals effectively manage the use of email, office applications and other technologies that have sped up the pace of the contemporary workplace.
