"In the early days, when my career was picking up speed, so was the load of incoming mails and increasing responsibilities.
Participating in the WorkingSm@rt time-management training has been a major help in getting a joint structure in place, resulting in a mailbox under control and a feeling of being in control again.
Ever since, this method has proven to be successful to bring structure, reduce stress-levels and contribute to delivering results. "
