Improve Your Time Management Skills to Improve Your Bottom Line

Through Savvy (and my own personal quest to work more efficiently), I am constantly searching for ways to help my law firm clients improve their productivity. Imagine my glee when I recently met Paul Burton, a former attorney who completely understands the law firm environment and who has launched a company to help his lawyer friends work more efficiently.

Like you, I am always suspicious of so-called time management schemes that take more time to learn than they help. So, I kicked the tires on Paul’s products myself and they work fabulously! Not only are the quick tutorials packaged in easily digestible, interactive programs but they work like a charm! With a few clicks, I reduced my distractions and improved my productivity. And that was from just ONE tutorial: Email Management.

So, I’ve decided to offer Paul’s library of programs, “QuietSpacing OnDemand,” through the SavvyAcademy LMS to interested firms.

These short-burst modular programs were specifically developed for lawyers and legal professionals. More importantly, they put people in charge of their own learning.

Try it for yourself!

Check out this preview of the email management program.

I know! It’s great, right?!
