Are You Making A Daily Startup Mistake? How many of you start your day checking your e-mail?
Every day, managers and professionals are getting buried under a continuing stream of both useful and useless e-mail. Without a system for getting “control of the beast”, professionals spend much of their work (and personal) time spinning wheels and feeling highly unsatisfied. If you would like to get control of your e-mail “beast”, you should attend this program featuring specific tips for Outlook and Gmail users, but applicable to ANY e-mail user. Learn a proven system for taming your e-mail account, with strategies for keeping your inbox efficient and under control by building and administering a personal "e-mail processing system”. Learn how to get rid of all those “quick little” e-mails once and for all, prioritize your most important messages, and mitigate or even eliminate much of that annoying junk and spam. Finally feel on top of your e-mail and related activities, rather than feeling it is on top of you.
In this new program reflecting our current times with the coronavirus outbreak, Randy Dean, MBA, The E-mail Sanity Expert®, will take his 16+ years of "working from a home office" and leading multiple client meetings and webinars virtually, and provide you with tips that can greatly help increase your productivity and effectiveness with both. We'll discuss critical set up, equipment, software, tools, and apps that will make your work from home experience more productive and less distracting. We will also discuss critical tips for running and/or attending online virtual meetings so they can be more useful and effective. All in a quick 90-minute webinar program!
E-mail. Texts/IM. Interruptions. Project Transitions. Office Clutter. Smart Phones and Apps! Social and Other Media. Even Family and Friends (and your dogs!) These common distractions make it almost impossible to get anything done, especially for those of us now “working from home” due to the COVID outbreak. It seems like there is always SOMETHING getting in the way of what you really need to do. But with some forethought and effective strategies, as well as some discipline, it is possible to find your focus, even in a hyper-distracted world. We'll have a fun time sharing "game plan" ideas for getting and keeping your distractions under control, and finding critical "focused productivity" time every day, leading to both performance but also clarity of mind and purpose. And, this program is now "audience flexed" -- the speaker will poll the audience at the start of the program to find out YOUR biggest distractions, and will customize the content accordingly.
You know which apps are fun, but what apps and functions will help you turn your Droid, IPhone, and/or Windows device into a productivity workhorse? In this session, we’ll discuss the apps, online services and peripheral devices that help take your Smart Phone (and tablets) from “cool” to “critical” when it comes to productivity, time, project, people, and e-mail management as well as “remote” productivity. You might even be able to consider whether the combination of these devices could even replace your “old school” laptop or desktop! And, for clients/attendees using Microsoft Office 365 or Google Suite, we will discuss app integration with your related computer/browser tools. A highlight to this program is when the presenter, Randy Dean, opens up the floor to program participants to share their favorite apps, allowing people to gain knowledge from all program attendees.

His goal is to help stressed out performers learn several new and immediately useful strategies for finding a few minutes on tasks, activities, and actions you are already doing, leading to at least an extra hour of productivity every day.

In this program, we’ll discuss three very powerful tools readily available to Google users – Keep, Drive, and a Chrome Browser add-on – Google Shortcuts.

You will learn how to use Google Keep to create and share notes, checklists, and more; how Drive can be your primary cloud drive for your documents and files, how to share items and documents with Drive, and how to use the Drive app on your phone as a scanning/PDF creation device. You will also learn about Google Shortcuts – a very powerful tool for your Chrome browser that allows you to put you most-used Google apps and tools at your fingertips for quick and easy access. Take your Google usage to a new level with this program!
Well-managed meetings are highly effective tools for keeping people and teams informed and productive, but they don’t happen by accident. Unfortunately, many teams and organizations report far too many unproductive meetings causing a drain on productivity and staff morale. Businesses and leaders need to make sure that their meetings are effective, productive, and consistently create value for the organization. If you are a leader that wants to plan and run more effective meetings using the least amount of valuable staff time and resources, this program provides you with the tools and strategies you need to plan, manage, lead, and end effective, efficient meetings. And, with the new rise of virtual tools and meetings due to the coronavirus outbreak, we will also cover several tips and strategies for making your virtual meetings work better and create value. Finally, this program has a few fun and interactive exercises, including a fun tutorial on how to run a better, more focused brainstorm session!
Mind Maps are a specific kind of interactive brainstorming tool that both enhances idea generation and easily encourages team involvement and participation. In this session, we’ll discuss how to set up an interactive mind map brainstorm session, key “to dos” for prepping and holding the brainstorm (as well as key “watchouts”), and then we’ll do one or more active, audience participatory mind map exercises, depending on time. We will also discuss how to take the output from the brainstorm and turn it into tangible plans/next steps following the session. The seminar leader, Randy Dean, MBA: The E-mail Sanity Expert®, will also share tips for those that will lead these sessions for their own teams and companies to help guarantee a successful brainstorming experience.
