Time Management Training
In our line of work, we hear a lot of employee complaints. And what are they suffering from? Email overload. Too many time-waster meetings that never lead to anything. Co-workers failing to do what they said they would do by the deadline, or doing it poorly. All this unproductive use of time unnecessarily adds to headcount, causes costly delays, frustrates managers, demoralizes the team and undermines leadership’s credibility and the company culture.
So why is it tolerated in so many organizations?
Truth is, it isn’t. People spend countless hours trying to address these productivity-robbers, sometimes to the point of total exhaustion. And those who are ready for real change allow OnwardU to once-and-for-all give their employees access to:Scroll down
Ask employees what pet peeves they have about their workplace, and you’ll find excessive and unproductive meetings at the top of their lists.
Yet, surprisingly few people have ever taken a workshop on how to run a meeting, despite the high cost to the business. The reality is meetings are overused because when in doubt about what to do, a meeting is generally called. Worse, the meeting typically has no or a poorly constructed agenda and no real defined purpose other than to tell people what is happening.
The Meeting Mastery workshop brings this overuse to the forefront as participants learn how to reduce the number of meetings attended and make the necessary meetings highly productive to work for them and the organization.
Participants learn if and when a meeting should be called, and how to manage preparation so the meeting is useful, how to run the meeting, participate productively in a meeting, prevent wasted meeting time, and create clarity about accountabilities and the next steps decided in the meeting.
Further, participants will discuss the many alternatives to having a meeting and learn tips for managing dysfunctional behaviors that detract from the meeting when in session.

Email Inbox: Target 25
Our workshop participants tell us they truly intend to meet their deadlines on the job. But then, things happen, and they can’t seem to get it all done, despite their best efforts. Their email is flooded. New demands are placed on them. Team members fail to meet their deadlines for work integral to the promised project. And so on, and so on.
Since the whole team is drowning in this time management swirl, they tend to collectively accept it as “the way things are.” Not having found a time management book that alters this reality, the team members reach an unspoken, unofficial agreement that it’s unfair and unreasonable for anyone to fault them for not making every deadline. And then, everyone is off the hook. And the big picture – your vision — is undermined.
In this workshop, participants examine and explore the undiscovered capabilities in common workplace calendar and task software and other best practices to communicate and manage commitments – their own as well as those of others.
They begin to relate newly to the functionality and management of email, calendars, meeting requests and task lists – and regain control over their time and priorities. Applying what they learn, they free themselves up to work more productively, earn peer respect, and reclaim their weekends and personal time as they learn best practices to ensure they never have more than 25 emails in their inboxes.
