We are all about productivity this month because I love helping school counselors make the most of their time to make the biggest impact they can! We talked last week about using a time audit to figure out where you are spending your time and how to cut out things that you don’t need to be doing, but how else can you make the most of your time? Batching!

We have so many things to accomplish each day and it’s amazing how much time we spend switching between these tasks. That’s why I highly recommend batching where you can! In this episode, I am sharing how I love to batch my communication so that emails, phone calls, and meetings aren’t taking up all your free time. 

Don’t forget to check out the Stress Free School Counseling Course to help you increase your productivity even more! The course is now included in your yearly IMPACT membership. Can’t wait to see you inside!

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • Can’t miss details about the new series, Coffee with the Counselor

  • Why you should be batching your tasks

  • How I like to batch managing my email inbox without ignoring parents and colleagues

  • Ideas for how to reduce the amount of time you are tied to your phone

  • Why having a “meeting day” can be helpful for batching meetings
