Managing Time is hardly possible.  You can only manage yourself.  Time management is not easy for anyone. You probably have many pressures, interruptions and ‘balls to juggle’ or ‘plates to spin’, to use familiar analogies!  For many people, it’s hard to say “no”, especially if they’re your boss, or a trusted co-worker. You can use the Urgent/Important Matrix to decide if a task or project is truly worth your time, or if it’s something you should say “no” to.

 

Do you know when you’re most focused during the day? For some people it could be when they first come in to work. Others may feel more energetic and focused late in the afternoon. Using your peak time wisely can help you add time during the day, because you’ll get more done, freeing up more time to do other things.

 

Every time you’re interrupted, it can take you a few minutes to regain the focus you had before. So, learning how to manage interruptions successfully and minimise distractions can add significant time to your day.

 

Effectively Managing Meetings is one of the most vital components for the effective use of time. So many people quote boring, unproductive meetings as being a ‘waste of time’, that some sense of it all is needed.

By means of discussion, questionnaires, practical exercises, as well as trainer input, you will learn techniques for long-term and short-term personal planning (time management techniques) which will help you to work effectively under pressure and get results.
