All program registrants will have the option to watch the new webinar replay from Fall 2017 featuring Outlook 2016, and/or watch the previous recording from 2016 featuring Outlook 2013.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Randy Dean’s Taming the E-mail Beast Using MS Outlook course, and you know how it can help professionals at every level increase their productivity using e-mail in MS Outlook. But did you know that Randy Dean, author of the recent Amazon Bestseller, Taming the E-mail Beast, can help you take the next step with your Microsoft Outlook to use it for more sophisticated time, project, client, and idea management, as well as better long-frame, daily, and minute-by-minute management. (Microsoft Outlook is a registered trademark of Microsoft Corporation.)

In this version of the course, Randy tailors all program and software demonstrations to the MS Outlook environment, and shows extensively how MS Outlook can be a center point to an advanced personal productivity and time management system. Randy will help you understand how many of the different functions within Microsoft Outlook were designed for enhanced productivity, and give great suggestions on how you can get so much more from this powerful and amazingly useful software program.

This program will greatly enhance your ability to use all five of the main Outlook functions: Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes, and, of course, E-mail. (Keep reading for course testimonials.)

Randy’s Optimizing Your Outlook course covers the following topics/areas:

  • A basic understanding of key “bigger picture” time management principles – including your current active projects and life roles – and how they can be integrated into your MS Outlook software
  • A discussion on the critical survival skill of “effective procrastination”, and how Outlook can help.
  • Fully integrating your MS Outlook software and related peripherals into your time management system, and getting the most usability and functionality out of your software, including:
  • Setting up your “Tasks” function for prioritized project/client actions
  • Strategically managing your Calendar to increase personal and professional effectiveness
  • Working with your Outlook functions to better manage your week and your day, by following new routines to enhance focus, reduce distraction, and have more confidence you are working on the most important items at any time
  • Using creative methods to make interpersonal communications more efficient and effective
  • Integrating your Outlook software into your broader office/personal organization system
  • Managing your “e-mail & info overload” — emails, voice mail, "snail" mail, and all those articles to read! – including several specific and highly useful strategies for Outlook e-mail management
  • Building an intelligent and structured Outlook folder system for efficient filing and management
  • Utilizing the “Notes” function to help “clear your mind” by creating several highly useful lists for organizing the random clutter in your mind
  • How to set up Outlook “reminders” that prompt you to take appropriate actions at the right times
  • Enhancing the information saved in your “Contacts” list for better relationships & communication
  • Setting up your time/project management system and your MS Outlook so that it contributes to your personal life just as much as it contributes to your professional life (“programs in” Work/Life Balance!)
  • Developing daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly rituals to help you stay on top of your system and keep your time management and personal organization skills sharpened

The program includes a coordinated handouts file in PDF format, as well as several additional bonus articles that will help program attendees build, develop, and retain the skills gained in the program session.
