The Secrets of Effective Time Management

Time Management - 1-day Public Course

Do you sometimes feel like work and life are managing you rather than the other way around? Do you often run late and over schedule yourself, or procrastinate and put off jobs that really need to be actioned?

This one-day Secrets of Effective Time Management course is designed precisely to give you the practical skills to tackle these problems. Rather than giving you excuses for repeatedly missing deadlines, the workshop provides a range of time management tools, techniques and ways of thinking that will enable you to actually take control of your time by planning and prioritising tasks effectively. This will serve to enhance your overall effectiveness and allow you to achieve more in shorter periods.

By the end of the course, delegates will therefore be aware of how and where their time is lost, but also have the tools to redress the situation in order to avoid negative consequences for themselves and others.
