Time Management

1 Day
Manchester 5th Aug 2021
24th Aug 2021
5.5 hours

Course Overview

Time is a limited resource and it is essential in organisations that the right task is done at the right time to achieve the objectives.

This course enables you to identify where the time management ‘challenges’ lie and how to ensure that everything is prioritised.  Delegates are requested to keep a 2 day time log prior to the course so that the time management techniques developed on the day can be tailored to their own particular needs.

The practicality of this course enables you to develop time management skills and organise your time to achieve the desired results.  You will learn how to handle interruptions, become more organised, get more out of meetings, handle ‘crises’, make decision and handle many other situations which steal time.

The course identifies the time wasters through looking at current time management practices.  Throughout the day many hints, tips and techniques are developed to enable better planning and use of time.  You are encouraged to develop an action plan which can be put into effect on return to the workplace.

This Time Management course is available throughout the UK.
