Fewer mistakes mean getting more done in the time available. Mistakes waste valuable time and correcting errors often involves several people. Taking remedial action to put things right takes up even more time. Getting things right first time, every time, has a big impact on productivity.
You'll explore how much mistakes are costing you and how to work more efficiently.
It’s difficult to concentrate when you are constantly under pressure, feel distracted and have to deal with interruptions. When you feel stressed your brain doesn’t work effectively and you can’t think logically. It’s easy to make mistakes, or to forget to do things. Learning how to ‘SuperConcentrate’ and manage stress and distractions means you work more accurately.
Accurate data handling
We know why people make transposition errors, omit data and read information incorrectly. The physical structure of the human eye and the way our brains perceive information can trick us into making mistakes.
We’ve developed proven, practical techniques that are easy to apply to all types of numerical and alpha numerical data as well as information containing names and addresses. You'll learn valuable data handling techniques.
Learn how to approach your checking with the optimum mindset and how to check effectively to find the mistakes. Just reading through a document or email to check it isn’t enough. You need to apply a structured checking process to ensure all the vital elements of your message are correct.
You’ll learn how to create effective checklists too, and how to spot the flaws in the ones you’re currently using.
