Topics

Organize 360

Organize 360 Approach, a holistic approach to productivity and organizing

A Holistic Approach to Productivity and Organizing 


The Organize 360 Approach examines three key activities that need to be in sync for optimal productivity - information flow, workspace design, and leveraging the right tools.


This signature program is one of our most popular training sessions.  It is a compiliation of many years of working with clients on three specific areas: productivity, information, and environment.

Get RESULTS Now

Get results now, increase productivity, achieve desired results

Organize 360 Approach to Productivity


Increased productivity is not about getting more done, it's about getting the right things done.  Achieve your desired results more quickly by fully understanding what being more productive means for you personally. 


The better you understand what you are trying to achieve, the easier it is to put the right tools and techniques into place to support your success. 

STOP Overload

Stop overload, information management, stop feeling overloaded

Organize 360 Approach to Information Management


We are constantly inundated with information: paper, email, texts, and social media.  In one year we are exposed to more information than individuals in the 15th century were exposed to in their lifetimes. No wonder we feel overloaded.


Understanding information input - the how, they types, the value, and the systems used to process - puts you in control.  You will learn tools and techniques to help you stop feeling overloaded. 

Calm Your WORKSPACE

calm your workspace, control your environment

Organize 360 Approach to Your Environment


Whether your workspace is small or large, you might struggle to keep your environment organized.  A clutter free and calm workspace will increase productivity, improve your efficiency, and reduce stress.


Small things such as desk location and ease of filing have a huge impact on our success. We will examine best practices for workspace design and ergonomics, distractions, and filing processes.

Control Your Inbox

Microsoft Outlook - Control your inbox, more than send and receive

Microsoft Outlook - More Than Send and Receive


Most of us know how to use Outlook.  But, this program will dive deeper into the program and show you tools within Outlook that you might not know even existed.


Outlook is (a lot!) more than sending and receiving email messages, adding meetings to the calendar, and flagging messages for follow-up.  This program will teach you how to use tools within Outlook that will enable you to do more than controlling your inbox.


*  This program is more effective if participants have access to a computer, but it is not a requirement.

Reduce Redundancy

Microsoft OneNote - reduce redundancy and increase collaboration

Microsoft OneNote - Increase Collaboration


Looking for an easy way to capture meeting notes, organize ideas, gather research, create action lists, and collaborate on projects in real time? Then welcome to Microsoft OneNote.  This program keeps information neat and tidy and enables you to find information quickly. 


You will learn how to use this effective tool to collaborate on projects and reduce confusion and redundancy.
