Description


IS YOUR INBOX OUT OF CONTROL?

HAVE IMPORTANT TASKS BEEN FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS?

DO YOU FIND YOURSELF SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME LOOKING FOR INFORMATION?


OCA, in partnership with TOTBOX (www.totbox.ca) , is happy to be offering you a solution to your email woes.  This easy to take, web-based course is designed to tame the email beast.  The content and learning of "Take Control with MS Outlook" is the same as the classroom version.  The only difference lies in the presentation model which is:

  • Two, 2.5 hr sessions, each scheduled 1 week apart (October 15 and 22) making it more manageable for employees to take the training and not have to take a full day away from the office.

It is estimated that email makes up 90% of correspondence in today's construction environment.  It has become increasingly important to effectively capture and track business related emails, tasks and commitments.  This workshop will help you master your Inbox and create a persistent focus on priorities.  You will learn time-tested strategies taught by today's leading time management experts that will help you maximize the use of your time.  You will also acquire the skills to improve your productivity by making use of Outlook's  most powerful tools.
