Batching refers to handling similar tasks as a group. Placing phone calls one after the other helps them go faster. Saving errands and running them all in succession is another. Do you have a question for a co-worker? Put it on your list. This afternoon, when you have half-a-dozen more points to discuss with that person, handle them all in one interaction. Others will start to notice how much less you interrupt them!
