Every one of us has 24 hours a day to use as we choose. The question is whether or not we use that time effectively. Successful leaders know how to prioritize work and complete what’s most important. They are laser-focused on executing work that has the most impact. They know effective time management strategies and how to take back time by utilizing time blocking, delegation, and saying no to anything that gets in the way of high priority tasks.

At the beginning of each day, week, and month, do you know the most important things you need to accomplish to achieve maximum impact?

In this life-transforming webinar, Joel Garfinkle, one of America’s top executive coaches, will teach you how to use prioritization skills to manage your time instead of letting time manage your life. He will teach you how to prioritize work according to what’s most important, and explain the five steps you should take before saying no – including the specific statements and phrases to use.
