Don't Drop the Ball: Methods to Manage Multiple Tasks, Handle Stress, and Gain Control of Your Time


The days of limited duties and spare time are long gone. Today’s administrative professionals must not only perform routine daily tasks, but also undertake special projects, managerial responsibilities, and teamwork challenges, not to mention unexpected challenges arising from the work-from-home environment. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn simple techniques to help re-focus unfocused leaders who try to commandeer their day
  • Use practical tools to speak up, get clarity on tasks and priorities, and take better control of their time
  • Activate practical suggestions for handling periodic and ongoing stress in your work and home life

Bonus Handout: Don’t Drop the Ball: Your Guide to Effectively Multi-tasking and Managing Stress

Hot Tip: Single-task as much as possible. Don’t let every interruption commandeer your day! Stifle the urge to switch to a new task just because it pops up (in email, text, notifications, phone calls, walk-ups). Quickly prioritize each new task, only switching immediately for the most important ones.
