Registration is closed.


Location: Online via Zoom


Workshop Overview: Productivity. It's important, but we often struggle with how to stay organized so that we are productive. We struggle with email, time management, and managing workloads. We want to delegate tasks, and even say "no" to some, but we struggle with the best way of doing that. In this interactive webinar, you will learn and use methods for these areas, and become more productive. Both paper and digital methods will be discussed.


Learning Objectives: After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Use effective techniques for organizing tasks across days, weeks, and months.
  • Adopt methods for staying on track and getting the correct tasks done, at the right time.
  • Create communication guidelines that will make email less burdensome, and a more effective tool.
  • Delegate tasks so that the responsible parties can undertake them without intervention.
  • Say "no" to tasks, when "no" is the correct answer.


Intended Audience: Any library staff member
