Half day or one day course
With the increasing emphasis on better results, and on giving improved customer service, organisations need to achieve more, year by year, with the same resources. Managers and employees are inevitably having to do more than one thing at a time, and need to do so without getting stressed!
This Effective Time Management training course offers participants at all levels techniques for getting more out of their working day, for eliminating non-productive activities, for creating time to think and plan, and for making sure they do not get taken off course by the myriad of unplanned events and requests that come their way each day.
The course length will depend on the job roles of the delegates and the circumstances and requirements of the organisation we are working with. Attendees will usually be asked to complete a time log before the course so they can assess their productivity whilst at work.
The importance of managing time effectively. An introductory session covering some of the common pitfalls when managing time and the consequences for the individual, their colleagues and the organisation they are working for.
Effective prioritisation. How to determine which tasks are urgent and which are important and why this is often subjective according to the individual. Clarifying your own personal objectives in order to deliver business objectives.
Habitual time-loss. Delegates will have the opportunity to examine their time logs and identify unnecessary and unproductive habits and activities. How to effectively change these habits is covered......it can be harder than most people think without a little guidance. Avoiding procrastination is also covered, and why some people struggle with time management issues with other seemingly being unaffected.
'The Helicopter Scale.' Why so many individuals spend too much time on the things in life that matter the least, and how to prioritise and create time for the important tasks that make a difference both at work and at home.
'Rock in a Bucket.' Leading on from the previous session, we use this great analogy to explain one of the leading principles of the course and to inspire people to make changes when they return to work.
Organisational culture. Identifying external time wasters such as gossip, procrastination and managing pressure from management and colleagues to focus on what is important to them, but possibly not to you.
Time management tools. A session for delegates to share the different methods they use to manage their time. This will include the value of having a structure such as daily 'To Do' list, and how to use technology to assist in ensuring that important tasks are completed on time.
Handling interruptions. Hints and tips on how to deal with and manage interruptions in an assertive and the art of saying 'no' politely.
What next? Delegates are encouraged to share what they have learned during the course, and to capture what they will consistently do differently when they return back to a busy workplace.
Anyone who has some discretion over how they use their time and who would like to use it more efficiently.
