Create a Culture of Productivity: Maximize Your Time, Talent & Technology — Aug 12 Half Day Virtual Workshop

08/12/2020 | 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Jan Lehman, CTC Productivity

Organizations today are feeling increasing pressures to improve productivity, eliminate waste, and maximize efficiency.  In good times and now in challenging times, as a leader, you have the opportunity and responsibility to encourage and reinforce productivity throughout your organization.  But it must start with you.

The Performance Excellence Network — in partnership with several other members of the Alliance for Performance Excellence (see below) — is pleased to announce a special half-day workshop the morning of August 12: “Create a Culture of Productivity: Maximize Your Time, Talent & Technology.”  The workshop will be facilitated by Jan Lehman, CEO of CTC Productivity. The workshop will be fully online, but highly interactive using Zoom Meetings.

Jan will share proven and emerging best practices that help leaders, professionals, and entire teams eliminate unnecessary interruptions, better manage emails, and reduce non-essential, non-value added work.  Her methods help get everyone focused on their most important priorities and stop the highly reactionary behavior that often steals time from every business day. Since productivity and employee engagement are tightly linked, these methods create a win-win for the organization and your employees.

Jan will share effective communication protocols across multiple platforms, helping you learn how to fully leverage your technology.  She’ll also share how the technology we are using is evolving and what you need to do now to be prepared for that transition, which has become even more important given virtual or split virtual/in-person work environments.

Join us for a tactical as well as strategic discussion on how to maximize the time, talent, and technology in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn email and time management techniques that will revolutionize the way your organization operates
  • Begin laying the foundation for an effective business communication strategy to drive organization-wide efficiencies
  • Gain a high-level understanding of how Microsoft 365 will be a pivotal platform long-term to improve communication, collaboration, and accountability across your organization

Workshop August 12 from 9:30-1:00 CT online.  Investment $200 for members ($175 for groups of 3-4 registering together, $150 for groups of 5+ registering together), $400 for non-members.

We all need to be more efficient now in managing our time and maximizing our productivity — in person or virtually.  Don’t miss this valuable workshop!
