Help for the Crazy Busy: How to Get Control Over Your Time and Commitments

One of the most consistent concerns expressed by professionals and teams around the world: “We don’t have enough time!”

The stress of having too much to do and not enough time to do it is overwhelming. In our interactive ‘Help for the Crazy Busy: How to Get Control Over Your Time and Commitments’ workshop, Andy Kaufman shares practical lessons to help you get a better handle on what it takes to efficiently and successfully manage your time and commitments. Topics include understanding the role of taking care of yourself (including getting more sleep and exercise), factors that drive procrastination (and strategies to overcome them that will help you manage your time and projects), ways to say "No" without saying "No", and strategies to manage interruptions.
