If You Want Something Done Right: Prioritize and Delegate Part 2

Believe it or not, you don’t have to do everything. It really is possible to have multiple work priorities and deadlines without letting them run your whole life. Here are few questions to ask your self:

* Are you finding yourself doing things over that you gave someone else to do?

** Are you adding 2 or more tasks for every one getting done?

*** Do your meetings seem to run late and off course?
In Part 2 of this interactive and fun webinar series from PCI you’ll learn skills that will help you effectively prioritize and identify “procrasti-killers” that can save hours each day.

Participants will learn and begin to master:

• Assure what your delegate gets done and done correctly
• Show you how to run efficient and productive meetings
• How to get meetings to start — and end — on time, while staying on course
