The Stack Method
Research shows that the average person in corporate America spends 28% of their week, managing their inbox. That's over 11 hours a week, and over 500 hours per year.
Managing your emails is overwhelming. You're inundated. You have emails flying in from all angles. Some are important, some are urgent, and some are both. Aaaarrggghh!!! What if you miss something? What if you forget to respond to someone? What about those people who need to respond to you?
The bottom line is, email takes up too much time and it is stressful.
After 12 years of process design, we have a unique solution that addresses email management time and also tremendously reduces stress levels. It works.
We don't shift the problem to the latest software fad. We tackle it head on and give you step-by-step process instructions to show you how to tame the email monster, regardless of which email client you use.
We stick with you, until this new way of mentally processing and handling your emails becomes a habit. It will be second nature to you in no time.
The Stack Method is the ONLY email processing technique that is customizable to your current workflows.
Your employees are spending almost 30% of their work year managing emails. It makes sense to implement efficiencies here.
Your teams will become so skillful in processing email, it will become an afterthought of their day. With this way of being, they will exponentially increase their ability to concentrate on their other priorities. ie. their work, their family, or whatever it is that they want to be doing, other than spending time managing their emails.
