Time Management – One Day

Time is a finite resource, and much has been said about it;

Time is money
It’s all you have, make the most of it
There is not enough time to do everything
Every second that goes by today is gone!

Recent research has shown that stress can be caused by a feeling of being ‘out of control – events appear to be controlling the person, rather than the person controlling the events. Stress related illness and absence can have many and varied impacts upon an organisation.

Whether an individual looking to adopt better time management practices, or an organisation that has found it necessary to re-structure, downsize, re-allocate roles and responsibilities, etc., and therefore get the best out of the time available, this course covers the key basics of good time management and addresses four fundamental questions:

  • Where does my time go?
  • What wastes my time?
  • How can I use my time more effectively?
  • How can I stay in control of my time?

It achieves this by exploring the bigger picture first, what practices have a major impact on the time available, from this acceptance delegates then examine techniques to adopt which can instil the discipline of good time management.

What do delegates get out of it?

  • Understand the concept of time, a powerful starting point

  • What is meant by Effectiveness and Efficiency
