Time Management Course
Overview

This 1 day course will show you how to use your time most effectively. You will return to work with a personalised Action Plan for how you can make lasting improvements to how you manage your time.

Learning to manage your time will increase your productivity and reduce your stress levels. You will be able to relax, safe in the knowledge that you are focused on your most important tasks. This is especially useful at work where there is always pressure to achieve more in less time.

Our expert trainers can show you how to make sure that you are focusing your time and energy on your most important tasks. They will also show you how to spot and avoid ‘time vampires’ that consume your time.

  • Understand clearly how you have been spending your time and how you could improve that.
  • The difference between Urgent and Important, and the impact that has on reaching your goals.
  • How to avoid and manage distractions to maximise your focus and productivity.
  • How to plan your time while remaining flexible for the changes that life inevitably throws up.
  • Diary management and delegation to ensure your time is being used most effectively.
