As the workload has increased so has the number of requests a person receives daily. Every request seems like the same priority, “most urgent”. The more every request seems like the same priority the greater the chances are that person is going to be overwhelmed. When a person gets overwhelmed, they slow down, not speed up. Participants will learn the correct questions to ask that accurately determine the correct priority of each day’s requests.
Participants will also learn how to give others better, specific direction when they need their requests finished to receive answers more quickly. Finally, participants will learn how to increase the actual amount of work they not only start, but complete in a day by working on one thing at a time.
