Time management has been in existence for a long time, but the term creates a false impression because time cannot be managed: we can only manage ourselves and our use of time. So time management is actually self management, and all time management skills can be learned.
We teach you how to build time management techniques into your daily routine so you can recognise and solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day. The result? Your working day will be less stressful, more productive, and much more enjoyable.
The course will enable delegates to:
- Manage priorities
- Increase effectiveness and productivity
- Enjoy a balanced lifestyle
- Be in control of their daily activities
- Reduce the stress due to lack of effective time planning
The course is suitable for anyone who needs to master the principles and practices of effective time management. From senior managers/directors to administrative and technical staff, in fact anyone who needs to find solutions to the following challenges:
“I never get the time to have lunch”
“I don’t always feel in control”
“I need to increase my productivity
“I have to juggle many tasks”
“I’m always being interrupted”
“I’d love to have more time for the things I enjoy most”
Delegates will be taught skills to improve planning, assertiveness, setting priorities, decision making, desk and paper management, and communication skills. Manage their priorities; manage themselves to get things done on time; be assertive with colleagues and managers and learn how to say ‘no’; gain sufficient time to complete their most important tasks; effective daily planning; prioritise and schedule tasks; learn to allocate time to each task in its order of priority; deal with interruptions and make effective decisions which affect your time positively.
