Published on

Dear All,

The Telephone, Computers & Internet were supposed to make our life easier; instead, all of us are busier than ever. We conduct meetings at office for better planning & implementation of things but now a days we are always busy with meetings. I fear, we all got into three major corporate time traps - " E-mail Distractions, Phone Interruptions & Poorly Run Meetings!"

Let me share with you a small ppt on " The Three Corporate Time Traps " which I use for training which might be handy for you.

Let me have your valuable feed backs on the same.

With best regards
Shamim Rafeek
