Conquering Your Time Management and Organization Challenges

Presented by Bob Arzt, Business and Sales Coach

Have you ever said to yourself:

  • There’s not enough time in the day to get everything done
  • My to-do list is out of control, it just keeps getting longer and longer/li>
  • I’d delegate more if I only had the time to do it
  • I’m working longer and harder than even, yet I’m not seeing enough positive payoffs for my efforts
  • If you can relate to any of these statements, you’re not alone.

Come to this workshop if you want to:

  • Identify your time wasters
  • Eliminate distractions
  • Learn how to focus on the highest and best use of your time
  • Create systems to delegate effectively

And much more…
