Studies show that the average worker is interrupted every eight minutes. The same studies reveal that 15% of the interruptions are important, while the remaining 85% are a waste of time.
Is your day a string of interruptions? Find it hard to ignore that "Got a minute?"
Let’s face it. If you're a valued member of your organization you can count on the fact that you'll have numerous things competing for your time and attention. You can’t get rid of workplace interruptions (or your boss, your co-workers or your clients), but you can minimize them.
Don't let routine interruptions derail your day.
There's only one sure-fire way to eliminate workplace interruptions altogether: resign. If that's not an option, attend this webinar and learn valuable techniques for preventing some interruptions while reducing the time it takes to handle the rest.
