Instructors: Amy Tokos & Jan Lehman
Total Time: 1.5 hours
CEUs: 1.5
Conference Year: 2019

Course Description
Have you done everything you can to help your business client be efficient, but they are still struggling with being overwhelmed? Are they responsible for coordinating the work of others or often get pulled into unplanned activities from other groups? Could they benefit from some project management skills even if they are not officially a project manager? This course is for productivity consultants that want one more tool in their productivity tool belt.

Sometimes our clients need more help then just helping them with their personal productivity. We teach them time management techniques and how to manage email effectively, but find them overwhelmed from the demands of their job.

This is when productivity consultants need to have other tools in their toolbelt. If you find you have clients that are frequently getting last minute requests from others or they are missing important deadlines because they haven’t proactively communicate their needs to others, then they may benefit from better understanding project management principles and tools.

Most of our clients are not true project managers so they have never been trained in this area. Nor do they need to be fully training in the area. They just need to be aware of what tools are out there and which ones may help them solve their specific problems.
