Conquer Your Email Overload: Superb Tips and Tricks For Busy People
Pulling your hair out from your email overload?
Over time, your (and staff’s) efficiency and productivity is impeded by:
-Being expected to use Outlook without any prior experience or training.
-Software upgrades without accompanying training
-IT helpdesks being increasingly focused on solving problems – not on education
-The lack of books or resources available for email users to turn to
The result, you and others at your company may spend an hour sorting through your emails whereas if you knew the shortcut or function the entire task would have been accomplished automatically.

While you can’t stop what is sent to your or staff mailboxes – beyond what the IT department filters out as spam or inappropriate email – you can make an enormous difference to productivity by learning how to easily and swiftly manage your Inbox – whether you receive 20 or 200 emails a day.
