Time Management Training

Learn how to manage your time and priorities better.
Relax, confident that you are focusing on the right things.

Overview

Regain control of your time on this one day time management course.

By the end of this course you will have learned how to:

  1. Effectively manage your time and priorities.
  2. Increase your productivity by focusing more time on your most important goals.
  3. Spot ‘time vampires’ that consume your time and permanently delegate them.
  4. Relax as you have a clear plan to achieve your goals despite inevitable interuptions.

You will return to work with a personalised time management Action Plan. This will detail exactly how you will make lasting improvements to managing your time on your return to work.

Audience

There are no prerequisites for this course. It is aimed at anyone who would like to manage their time more effectively. This is usually at work, but the techniques learnt will be equally beneficial in all aspects of your life.

It is very useful if, prior to the course, you could keep a time diary for a week or so. This will simply contain what you have spent your workdays doing and also note any particular issues that came up. This is not vital but participants on previous training courses have found the course materials and activities have had more impact where they have managed to do this.
