This course will focus on the challenges that
all probation officers face in using time efficiently to manage the increasing
challenge of growing caseloads and demands on time. Participants learn to
prioritize tasks and use time-management methods to become more "paper
efficient." Further, learners find out how to set limits with others in
order to manage work interruptions and reduce time waste. Being efficient on
the telephone and learning tools to overcome procrastination and work
resistance are the focus area in this "cut to the chase" course.
