 Slay the E-Mail Monster
Presented by: Lynn Coffman, Productivity Coach

Abstract: The e-mail monster is a real problem. Talk to most people in companies today and you will hear a common recurring theme, "I am swamped with e-mail." E-mail overload is considered an inescapable fact of work in this information age. Schedules are disrupted. Priorities are changed. The volume of e-mail grows and the stress increases exponentially. But this is a misguided view. Is it the e-mail out of control or something else? There is a better way.

Lynn Coffman has helped clients operate with better focus and agility for over 14 years. In this presentation, she will talk about how e-mail technology is not more important than the process of getting work done. The process is business communications and the tools are enablers of working more effectively AND more efficiently.

Things you will learn:

  • Choose the correct channel for the nature of communication
  • Take steps to reduce the volume of e-mail
  • Attain "Inbox Zero"

Applying these techniques will help you to "direct your workflow" so that "your work flows directly."

Lynn Coffman provides many years' worth of experience in the corporate, government, non-profit and small business sectors improving an organization’s operational effectiveness. Currently focusing on companies with up to 100 employees, Lynn’s Lean/Agile-based approach of integrating people, principles, processes and technology helps insure that the right results are reached by their clients' leaders, managers, workgroups and teams. Her systems approach provides a scalable and repeatable company standard so their people operate with better focus and agility.
