Do you find some days where you are busy, stressed but feel like nothing was accomplished?
Do you look at your “to do” list at the end of the day and notice nothing was crossed off?
This presentation will help you identify what are some causes of losing time in your day and how you can effectively manage your time. You will walk away with tools that you can start using immediately to account for the best use of your time and further your success, both at work and in your personal life.

Communication is the key to success and impacts every facet of your life; good and bad communication can set the tone for your work environment, it will affect your marriage and your friendships. Being a good communicator doesn’t mean you talk a lot – in this training you will learn that there is a lot more to communicating than talking.
