Collapse Become a Microsoft Outlook Email Cracker-Jack, Managing Your Workflow and Keeping Your Inbox Empty - Session 3:   FILING
Session 3: FILING

Do you have thousands of emails in your inbox and spend far too much time staying on top of it?

Watch these five online one-hour training videos with Laura Stack and complete assignments in between. Reference a detailed workbook for each session with screen shots and step-by-step instructions. The workbooks have no time limit (you own them forever), so you can review them over and over again!  

How do you know if you need this training? You need this course if you currently:

* Put things to do on your calendar
* Use your inbox like a quasi-to do list
* Mark emails as Unread
* Flag emails for follow-up
* Forget to do things you promised
* Clean up your inbox

Here are some of the strategies you’ll learn:

1. Reducing: reducing the volume of inbound messages

2. Filtering: automatically removing, moving, or filing certain types of communication

3. Converting: switching emails into meetings or to-do items

4. Prioritizing: triaging the actions inside the emails and knowing what to do next

5. Writing: responding quickly with emails that are actually read

6. Scheduling: blocking out time to work on email without having it take over your day

7. Alternating: using other tools except email to complete certain tasks

8. Speeding: using templates, quicksteps, multi-actions, and short keys to perform email tasks more efficiently

9. Emptying: learning a step-by-step process to get to Inbox Zero every day (where do they go?)

10. Saving: stop using email folders and find what you want when you want it (no, your inbox is not a filing system either)

    Collapse FREE!  Assertiveness and Direct Communication:  Your wording is a critical productivity tool.

    Whether you’re communicating with employees or superiors, say what you mean as directly as you can without being curt. Diffidence or timidity isn’t going to get you anywhere, because it wastes time in a number of ways. So choose your words carefully. While there will always be some potential for confusion (we’re only human, after all), solid, clear wording at all levels will ensure that such confusion is limited. Don’t use a ten-dollar word when a nickel one will do; not only will people not have to waste time (and therefore productivity) trying to figure out what you’re trying to say, they’re less likely to mistake what you’re trying to say. Mistakes waste time, so it’s crucial to avoid as many as possible.
