TIME MANAGEMENT TRAINING

 

Time Management Training Course will help you become more productive and more efficient in your role, and includes training in effective time management strategies such as goal setting, task prioritisation and delegation, applying Pareto's 80/20 rule, managing emails, how to overcome the
procrastination habit and much more.

We want you to get the most out of your time spent in class, therefore, we encourage you to tell the trainer which lessons you would like to get trained in extensively before attending the course - you'll receive an invitation to do this once you've enrolled. The trainer will then customise the training to your needs and cover those topics in more detail.

 

FOREWORD

Understanding, identifying and defining your long-term goals is the very first step when implementing an effective time management solution. With the broader goal in the background, you can now set a series of medium and short-term goals that will effectively lead you to achieving the cherished long-term goals in your life.


By applying the skills taught in the Time Management Workshops, you can optimise your efforts to ensure that you concentrate as much of your time and energy as possible on the high-payoff tasks. This ensures that you achieve the greatest benefit possible with the limited amount of time available to you. Contrary to popular belief, effective time management is not necessarily based on doing more things in less time.
