Course description

How to Manage Your Workload Effectively

Work teams will often tell you that they now have half the people to do twice the work. Sometimes it’s because of budget cuts, mergers and acquisitions, layoffs, outdated role descriptions, and a cultural shift due to changing demands over time.

Morale declines. People are stressed and employee engagement decreases. Projects fall through the cracks deadlines are missed. A study at Temple University shows when people “reach cognitive and information overload,” brain activity declines in the portion of the brain responsible for making decisions and controlling emotions. The result: people start making bad decisions and errors increase.

Our Time & Workload Management Skills Workshop will help participants gain control of their workload and learn solutions to increase productivity and improve morale.
