In a demanding workplace, the most exhausting burden can be the committed person's feelings of stress and disappointment. Deadlines, expectations, tasks, interruptions, and simultaneous priorities can clash and create gridlock. Yet there are those who deftly field new challenges, while regularly, and calmly, turning out quality results and fresh ideas while enjoying their work. How do they do it? This workshop will help you learn the practices and methods you need to master multiple priorities and projects in a demanding workplace. Topics include: effective problem solving; tools to monitor progress in improving productivity practices; examination of teamwork; and persuasion methods to mutually support work group productivity.
