Decrease Your Interruptions 20% or More
Interruptions are among the most insidious enemies of workplace productivity. On average, managers spend up to three hours a day dealing with interruptions, and our research shows that people, not technology are the most common cause. Imagine the productivity gains if you could reduce interruptions by even one half!
Interruptions can come from managers, colleagues, employees… anyone who might step through your office door. But the growing cause of interruptions is technology. Not long ago, we received mail only once a day. Today, faxes, couriers, voice-mail, E-mail and our Blackberry’s bombard us with messages by the minute.
The best way to deal with interruptions is to take control. By using these techniques, you can gain undisturbed productive time.
However, the most effective way of reducing interruptions is to develop your personal workload management skills. Following training, managers have reported unnecessary interruption decreased by 20 percent.
