Time Management Training Courses

Learn time management skills and abilities required to prevent time's ability to slip away!

Time is measured in hours and minutes, but not all hours and minutes are the same length. The number of expressions in daily use which describe time's ability to pass quickly, slowly, or stand, still, testifies well to how capricious it can be. The phenomenon is immutable; those who ignore it invariably come off worst; the only option is to understand it better.

Our time management training is designed to introduce staff to the skills and abilities required to manage their time better and help prevent time's extraordinary ability to slip away.

The approach will involve presentations and discussion to introduce the concepts of time management and practical exercises and syndicate work to develop personal skills.

For example we use a training activity called 'In-Tray' which consists of a number of documents (emails, memos, notes, letters) and their task is to:

1.  Prioritise the items and decide which communications need an instant response:

      1. High Urgency/High importance
      2. High importance/Low Urgency
      3. High Urgency/Low Importance
      4. Low urgency/low importance.

2.  Decide which items can be delegated.

3.  Decide which items can be put into the diary.

4.  Identify problems within the business and decide what should be done.

"If you haven't got the time to get it right the first time, how will you have the time to do it again?”

Who will benefit:

Anyone needing to balance their workloads and gain more control of time.

By the end of the time management course delegates will be able to…

  • Identify Time Stealers

If you have to deal with any of the following, you could have your time stolen from you:

Paperwork                 Meetings               Delegation           Perfectionism
Procrastination          Reading                Telephone            Visitors

  • Prioritise

Unlike money, time cannot be borrowed to tide you over a bad patch. We need to prioritise our work to prevent the routine becoming a priority. An understanding of the Pareto Principle will help.

  • Plan  “Failing to plan is planning to fail."

How to identify long-term and short-term goals, prioritises and implement plans.
