The Challenge

In today's world, there is a greater abundance of opportunity for both organizations and individuals to accomplish extraordinary goals. However, all too often, the demands of our jobs, coupled with the barrage of information coming at us from so many sources (e.g. texts, emails, reports, tweets, blogs,web-sites, etc.) is overwhelming, exhausting and distracting. The sheer volume of distractions threatens our ability to think clearly and make good decisions. If we react to these stimuli without careful discernment, we will sink into a sea of irrelevancy and fail to accomplish the things that matter most in our professional and personal lives.

The Solution

FranklinCovey’s The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity inspires participants to apply a process that will dramatically increase their ability to achieve life’s most important outcomes. The process measurably increases productivity of individuals, teams, and organizations. Participants make more selective, high-impact choices about where to invest their valuable time, attention, and energy. Supported by science and years of experience, this solution not only produces a measurable increase in productivity, but also provides a renewed sense of engagement and accomplishment.  This course features a hands-on technology teach, showing participants how to use the FranklinCovey productivity concepts within Microsoft Outlook.

What your colleagues are saying about the course


  • This course is extremely helpful. I feel that the many MS Outlook tips will help me be more productive. One chunk at a time I will get to a better place.

    This was a very good learning experience with many tangible take-a-ways. Thinking about and clarifying what is most important was great.

    The course is both thought-provoking in a big picture sense and in a practical sense. The course generates great, tangible ideas and activities that are implementable.

    I definitely will put what I have learned into practice. I will be better organized to complete my tasks on time. I know others in my department can benefit from this class as I did.

    This course will help everyone in their entire life, not just work life. I enjoyed the technical portion. I learned so much! This really met my expectations in what I was looking to learn. I wish I could have learned all this 10 years ago!

    Great usable tips.

    The materials are great and wonderfully presented. I am excited to get to the office and try the changes.
