 Personal Effectiveness - Time Management

  Code - BC-603   Duration - 1 Day   

Many Time Management approaches are task-driven and as a result we tend to over-schedule the day.

We feel frustrated if we do not see time for important work tasks, a colleague, a family member, a friend, or indeed ourselves. This can lead to stress and under performance.

The fact is we cannot manage time - but we can manage our activities in the time we have. ‘Time Management’, is really about ‘Self Management’. What is required is an approach that supports professional and personal roles in a balanced way.

In this workshop, we will present a number of core concepts and practical techniques that you can use immediately to complement or replace your own current approach to Time Management.

Attendees will examine and clarify their own professional and personal roles and identify what activities they should focus on. During the workshops attendees will work on real planning, scheduling and actions that can be applied immediately after the course.


 Who Should Attend?

and achieve their goals in a measured and composed manner.
