Managing Time, Multiple Priorities and Interruptionscontinuingstudies.wisc.edu/0266-C-PDAS See upcoming dates
Learn to identify behaviors and create strategies that help you manage multiple priorities and handle interruptions so you are more effective at work. We cover the myth of multitasking, how daily goals and objectives lead to success, strategies and best practices in putting out fires, doing more than one job, meeting madness and how to limit interruptions. Additional time is spent discussing new technology that can help increase daily effectiveness and achieve a better life-work balance.
This program will be a mix of self-directed learning in Canvas and one live online session using the Zoom platform. The self-directed learning exercises will be available in Canvas two weeks before the live session and should be completed before that date.
