Course Details
Time management is a core business management skill which has been around for years. Despite this we are no better at time management today than our predecessors were twenty or thirty years ago. Over the years many myths have grown around time management. One of them is that we can in fact 'manage time'. We can't. 

 

We can, however, manage ourselves, and our own behaviour. But rather than a slave to the clock, we can become a 'master of time'.

 

Aim
Slave to the Clock, Master of Time shows you how to reduce behaviours that make a slave of you, and how to commit to making changes in the way you use your time. To become a master of time requires a major mind shift, a change in the way you do things. However, a major shift can begin with small changes.

 

Some key benefits from this workshop include:

  • Plan your day, week and month to ensure that you achieve your business and personal goals
  • Understand where your time is being spent and what actions you can take to reduce the amount of time that is wasted on you
  • Use a simple framework to prioritise your workload
  • Deal with difficult people who steal your time
  • Improve productivity levels

As the pressure of work intensifies and expectations get higher, setting aside the time to develop a personal time management strategy to achieve personal and company key tasks, targets and objectives gets harder. This course will help you to invest your time wisely, improve productivity and add value to your organisation. Time management is not about managing time, it is about managing yourself and those around you and letting time take care of itself.

 

Objectives

Below are some key strategies that are explored on this course.

 

  • Prioritise the important things in your work and not just the urgent things, dealing with competing priorities. Improve your thinking process and decision making to become more results focused
