Do any of these statements apply to you?
- Your email inbox contains more than 50 messages, maybe more than 100 or more than 1,000.
- You feel overwhelmed by the volume of email you receive each day.
- You often have a hard time getting anything done because you’re dealing with email.
- Commitments and tasks fall through the cracks because information gets lost in your email inbox.
- You wish email didn’t control so much of your time and attention.
If any of these statements resonate with you, it’s time for an email intervention.
We know (and perhaps you agree) that a lot of people out there are addicted to email. Others may not feel addicted, but are stressed out by the sheer volume they receive and overwhelmed by the time it sucks out of their workday and even their leisure time.
Simply Placed can help you take steps to reduce your stress around email, reduce the time you spend in your inbox, and increase your work productivity with an Email Intervention Consultation.
In this practical consultation, you’ll learn and immediately apply strategies to:
- Improve focus and recoup wasted time by minimizing distractions and interruptions.
- Reduce email volume.
- Strategically process email and then get to work.
- Improve email quality.
- Improve task management and work prioritization.
Simply Placed offers Email Intervention as a group workshop and one-on-one consultation either at your place of business or virtually via videoconference.
Debbie Rosemont came to my office for an email intervention and it changed my life! Not only do I have a (mostly) empty inbox, but my days are much more productive because she showed me how to organize and create tasks. Tasks that were slipping through the cracks due to poor organization are now scheduled and getting done!
Emails are no longer running my days! Debbie taught me to make a decision about each email and act on it, rather than read it, and leave it in my inbox. I either create a task if it will take me longer than 2 minutes to respond, respond if it will take me less than 2 minutes, or file it in a folder for reference.
Game-changing!! Thank you, Debbie, for teaching me how to manage my time and information so much better!!
We’ve worked with Simply Placed for productivity consulting and training with great results. Debbie has conducted a number of group training sessions for employees of our Spokane and Colville offices, and consulted with individuals in our Downtown Seattle and Northgate offices.
The feedback we’re getting from employees that have benefited from her training and individual sessions is that she’s made a significant positive impact, that the strategies she teaches are easy to implement, and employees are enjoying more efficient and effective ways of working.
We continue to choose to work with Simply Placed because they truly make a difference.
In some ways it is embarrassing to admit how long I had used email without realizing how badly I was using it! Thanks to some time with Debbie Rosemont of Simply Placed, I have gone from a guilt-inducing 2200 emails in my inbox to a system that maintains a zero in-box on a daily basis and has me feeling organized and on top of the items that need follow-up and action. These changes weren’t difficult to make and have been easy to apply consistently. I wish I had made this investment years ago.
