Passport to Productivity – What sets successful employees apart? Their productivity. They get more done, they’re given more important projects. But productivity doesn’t just happen – it’s learned, planned for, and executed with intention. Develop habits that will set you apart in the following areas: managing your time, running effective meetings, keeping up with email, prioritizing projects, and controlling all the paper on your desk.


Getting Organized in Outlook – Outlook isn’t just for email – it’s a tool to manage information and time, too. But most employees never get beyond the basics. A better understanding of Outlook saves you time and frustration. Its hidden tips and tricks will help you get the most done in the least amount of time. All participants receive Audrey’s unparalleled Outlook Resource Card, a quick reference of the session concepts, including: streamlining processes for email, contacts & tasks; the Categories feature – when and where to use it; shortcuts for creating new contacts, sending emails, and tracking projects; automatic formatting for email and calendar; customized settings; and common email file folder mistakes.
