3 Outlook Productivity Strategies

3 Keys to Implement 'Outlook Productivity, The New Way'

Strategy #1: Regain control of your Inbox

Make high-level decisions about what to do with your email: File it, Action it or Trash it. Get CC mails out of your Inbox. Supplement your filing system with an efficient finding system. Shortcuts make it super-easy to transform a fuzzy Inbox into crystal clear actions.

Strategy #2: Make YOUR priorities matter

Be ruthless. Make better decisions about how to use your limited time, attention and energy. Get crystal clear about what really matters and manage those actions in your Calendar and Tasks. Delegate and track progress without effort.

Strategy #3: Stay focused on the task at hand

Start your day proactively, reviewing your agenda - not looking at what other people want you to do, i.e. your Inbox. Communicate your priorites and protect your boundaries using your Calendar. Say 'no'. Minimise distractions. Say goodbye to multitasking.

Key #1: Get top drawer content - when you need it

The days of getting the content in a classroom are over. Content must be available 24/7 on demand at the point of need - you. Micro lessons rather than a traditional 40- to 60-minute lecture are the order of the day. Not just 'Outlook training' but a purposeful blend of productivity principles applied in Outlook. For all versions of Outlook 2010 and later, including Microsoft 365.

Key #2: Don't go it alone

It has been shown that 85% - 95% of people who enrol for an e-learning course and do it all by themselves witthout any support, fail to complete the course. Most people still want to be part of a group when learning something new. They also want direct interaction with the course leader. Outlook Productivity, The New Way includes live online facilitator-led workshops for Q&A, interaction and group coaching.

Key #3: Keep momentum

To quote Zig Ziglar:“Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment.” A fortnightly refresher opportunity is part of Outlook Productivity, The New Way. Forming an accountability partnership with one or more fellow-students puts you in a better position to achieve success.
