Event Details

Higher technology does not always equate to increased productivity. Just ask the scores of companies that heavily invest in communications advances only to see the new tools adding to – not reducing – employee workload. But couple that technology with an ever-accessible system for collecting, organizing, and prioritizing electronic, voice, and hard-copy information and the picture dramatically and immediately changes. The methodologies taught at the program will help refine your focus, manage your priorities, and give you a process for effectively executing tasks and reviewing progress related to your objectives. These methodologies are designed to help you: • Focus on meaningful objectives; • Define productivity to determine approach; and • Increase accountability and integrity. The Chicago Club is pleased to invite you to learn about advanced productivity solutions and, specifically at the program, become more efficient in managing your inbox by leveraging features in Microsoft Outlook. The two-hour event will be facilitated by McGhee Productivity Solutions. This program will provide attendees with McGhee methodologies that: • Dramatically reduce the number of e-mails you send and receive; • Create results-yielding e-mails and reduce e-mails chains; and • Enable planning, prioritization, and tracking of your agreements, commitments, and communications.
