Tame the Digital Chaos
Distraction, Time, Task & Email Management for Lawyers
Today’s legal professionals are constantly distracted by technology, connectivity, and information overload … email, instant messaging, social media, phone calls, interruptions, etc. These distractions cause very smart people to underperform. Too many time management seminars simply gloss over the advantages of technology without teaching lawyers how to properly use it. Moreover, they fail to address the evils of technology and how it can completely derail our day if we don’t have a good methodology to process all the incoming information. In this seminar, you will learn how to take back control of your day and own your technology instead of it owning you – with distraction management techniques and practical time, task & email management methodologies that let you regain control of your day. We will roll up our sleeves, get our hands dirty and learn how to use Microsoft Outlook to properly process information, be an email Ninja! … and manage your tasks using Outlook or other popular electronic task programs!
