Are you constantly double handling emails? Our Email Management Training or Coaching can help you get your Inbox back under control.
Email is a great servant, but very a poor master. Many people basically use their Inbox as their To Do List and this ultimately results in poor email productivity. They will open an email, read it and then mark it as unread in order to come back to it later. They are then forced to constantly scan their Inbox looking for unread emails that they have not yet responded to. Clearly this double handling of emails wastes a lot of time and is not very reliable!
Some people will even forward old emails to themselves in order to bring emails back to the top of their Inbox!
Email can be a great distraction of course, and we know that not every email we receive is important! However, given that email is now THE communication medium of choice. We cannot simply ignore them… And since so much of our work is now delegated to us via email, it is imperative that important emails do not get lost in your Inbox. Unfortunately, most people simply don’t have a good system for managing their email effectively.
Our Email Management Training or 1-1 Coaching program is designed to help people get their email Inbox back under control and greatly reduce their stress in the process. We show people how set up their Microsoft Outlook Inbox in such a way that emails are never inadvertently lost or forgotten. Learn to use the features of your Microsoft Outlook that can save you valuable time and dramatically boost your productivity with email.
