The WorkingSm@rt method was created to meet the changing demands of a complex, modern business world, evolving with the challenges in business to provide the solutions that organizations need to be successful.

MORE TIME, LESS STRESS

WorkingSm@rt will give you back the most valuable of all resources: Time.

Time to spend on your next innovation, your staff, your customers, or simply time with your family and friends. When you feel in control of your day and it’s YOU making the decisions, you can focus on the activities you get most from and that bring you the most reward.

LEVERAGE TECHNOLOGY AND SOFTWARE YOU ALREADY USE

One of the many benefits of the WorkingSm@rt method is its ability to integrate with industry-standard business software and hardware configurations. Many organizations, large and small, have a complex mix of systems, process and procedures that requires training be customized to match their specific needs. WorkingSm@rt has this flexibility built in.

I thoroughly enjoyed the training session but did not focus properly on making the change. As a result I pushed out the coaching session a few times as was a little embarrassed by how little I'd done! However the 30 minute session with David was fantastic. He was so clear and made it all so easy - put me on the right path and beginning to feel the benefits already!

Invaluable training with the Priority Management team - whether it is on the Working Smart with Outlook or One Note, the time these guys will save you in the way you work after their training is Gold … worth every penny. Now the training is online it’s also even better and especially when they do one to one coaching after the course. Thank you Claudia , William and David

Project Manager / Canada Life Group

WorkingSm@rt with Microsoft Outlook

The WorkingSm@rt with Microsoft Outlook course with Priority Management training was excellent and exceeded my expectations! I thought I was fairly efficient with Outlook but with the pre-work and set up of Outlook (even simple things like turning off notifications that interrupt what you are doing) and focus on tasks it has definitely made me even more efficient then before and I can log off each day knowing that all emails have been actioned/filed/delete/scheduled and my inbox is empty! Keep up the good work and also great that a follow-up coaching one-to-one is included as part of the course to see how the theory then works in practice (great!) and ability to ask questions anytime via email after the course will definitely be beneficial too. Definitely recommend everyone of any experience level attend!
