Philadelphia Consultant Attacks Email Problems
Poor Email Management is Squandering Professional Time and Killing Corporate Productivity. New Book by Philadelphia consultant Provides a Solution
FLOURTOWN, Pa. – Local Flourtown resident, Bob O’Hare, recognized the troubling trends with email while consulting in the real-world workspaces of his corporate clients. “Managing email takes way too much time because we never learned to do it effectively. As a result, we are constantly interrupted, spend countless hours processing and re-reading emails that languish in our inbox, store email we don’t need and suffer from email overload,” he says. While email has revolutionized the way the world does business, the amount of time devoted to managing it has become a burden on many in the workplace.
In his compelling new book, Unload Email Overload, consultant and executive coach, Bob O’Hare, offers those with overloaded inboxes a methodology to handle email quickly and effectively, freeing up precious time for other personal pursuits. To help companies change email culture, O’Hare facilitates on-site workshops and coaching sessions.
A recent survey by Mashable.com showed the average worker spends almost a third of her workday answering emails. In a recent column in The Wall Street Journal, eBay’s director of learning and organizational development, Lacy Roberson, said she sees workplace distraction as an “epidemic.”
Unload Email Overload, delivered in an intelligent, easy-to-read format, will help minimize interruption, overcome indecision, manage the inbox to near-empty, and eliminate frustration with email. The book also details how email should be used to plan and organize time and priorities. These ideas—mostly missing in email management—enable workers and managers to get their work done – at work. In addition, Bob raises upper management awareness to corporate productivity losses that cost millions of dollars annually.

“The amount of time dedicated to email often causes workers to push other tasks to the back-burner, requiring them to work long and late. By managing their email properly, workers will have more time to devote to the dinner table, their families and more enjoyable activities,”
