Managing time…well, this should be one of the foremost challenges that modern man has faced. Today, with all our gadgetries and reminders which keep beeping to remind us of our nearly every task that we do, right from waking up to going to bed, the challenge to beat time has increased.
But what we need to do is to understand that here, smart work, rather than hard work, is the solution. One can work hard, but managing tasks within the stipulated time requires a person to be smart and think on her feet and move on to the next task. Failure to finish tasks at the allocated time results in building up a queue that will grow on and on, becoming menacing every time you look at it.
How does one handle tasks and complete them by the allocated time? This requires just smart working and nothing else, least of all a magic wand. The ways by which to adapt this smart attitude and get tasks carried out without generating a pipeline of uncompleted tasks will be the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, is going to teach.
This session, which is being organized on August 7, will have Chris DeVany, the Founder and President of Pinnacle Performance Improvement Worldwide, as the expert.

The core of this learning is that the more one puts off the important tasks, the more difficult it will become to carry them out later. The pressure of having to weigh the importance of the next important job burdens the mind. This makes the impending task a lot more complicated than it is because the worker is under greater pressure to complete it than is required.
The worst sin for any person, that too for an employee, is procrastination. Far from preventing completion of a task, postponement will only make the task reappear as a monster later. Chris will show how to complete assigned tasks within designated timeframes to ensure that the work goes on smoothly. He will show how employees, instead of dreading the burdensome task, can actually enjoy working on it.
He will cover the following areas at this session, which is useful to managers such as CEO, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Executive Director, Managing Director, Regional Vice President, Area Supervisor and Manager:
