  • The tell-tale signs of poor time management are often apparent in the workplace; people feeling overloaded with work, working late or missing deadlines – often lurching from one crisis to another. The outcomes of poor time management are potentially harmful for both the individual and the organisation, since productivity suffers, stress takes a hold and morale crashes. When time is managed well, however, people are exceptionally productive at work, stress levels drop and they can devote time to the interesting, high-reward projects that can make a real difference to a career.

  • Do you ever feel like you’re adrift in the world - working hard every day but getting nowhere? Do you seem to run out of time but wonder what you have actually done? If this sounds familiar it may be because you haven’t really thought about what you should be doing, where you should be going and how long it should take. To help you manage your time more effectively, surely it makes sense to have a good idea of what you should be doing and how long it should be taking? This course is designed to enable you to understand the importance of setting goals in time management.

  • Do you work hard? Do you consider yourself to be well organised and efficient, but despite your best efforts you never seem to actually achieve your objectives? Well, it could be that you are working on the interesting but unimportant tasks, rather than the ones that can have a real impact. To be effective, you need to prioritise: you need to decide what tasks are urgent and important, and focus on these. With good prioritisation you can bring order to chaos, reduce stress and move towards achieving your goals.

  • Time is a finite resource that cannot be stored or saved for later use - time poorly used cannot be retrieved. Everyone has exactly the same amount of time each day, so how well it is used will figure highly in defining levels of job performance. For these reasons, the ability to analyse how time is spent, identify poor use and then effectively plan and schedule time usage in the future is essential, especially for busy people. This course will enable you to undertake all these key time management activities.

  • Most of us are distracted several times, if not dozens of times, every day. We get emails and phone calls; we are pulled into last-minute meetings; we are asked for information and advice. And this all works in reverse, with us having to write a quick email, make a phone call, or call an unexpected meeting. We also need to take breaks to give our brains, eyes and ears a rest. On top of all this we have non-work interruptions and disruptions – the social interactions that are all part of life at work. Everyday interruptions can be a major barrier to managing your time effectively, and, ultimately, can be a barrier to your success. Learning how to minimise these distractions can dramatically increase your productivity and effectiveness, as well as reduce your stress.

  • This course will help the learner to improve their job performance, develop their existing skills and knowledge and work effectively towards career goals through the creation of practical and effective personal objectives. All organisations set themselves objectives which drive them towards aspirational goals. Almost all, however, rely on their human resource to provide the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to realise those goals and objectives. This means that it is essential all employees possess the ability to create personal objectives that align with those of the organisation, result in personal development and are a source of satisfaction for all.
