Time Management

Poor use of time creates a range of problems - under performance, job dissatisfaction, work overload and stress. However, there are many benefits to good time management. One of the first steps in this time management course is to help delegates understand that time management is impossible. It’s about how we manage ourselves and others at work and the degree to which we take ownership of time thieves, particularly if they imposed by other people. Influencing plays a role in this in house time management course by encouraging the delegates to reduce blaming others and think about how they can influence to get more of what they want.

We cover how to build time management tips and techniques into daily work routines so that time management problems can be recognised and tackled, staying in control of the working day. The working day will be less stressful, more productive and much more satisfying.

Course Features

  • The time management training course combines the ‘training in’ of a range of planning and organising models, with some opportunities to practice the models in the ‘safe’ training environment
  • A variety of training methods are used including group discussion, self-diagnostic questionnaire, syndicate work and skill practice
  • A feature of the training course is the use of a Knowledge/Skill Checklist - a list of the knowledge and skills being developed. Delegates rate themselves at the start and finish of the training course to establish the extent to which they have benefited. This also gives the delegate, and their line manager, an analysis of their strengths, highlighting any further development needs
  • A mini exhibition of interpersonal skill books, additional handouts and ‘hints and tips’ sheets will be provided for delegates to browse during the day
  • Delegates are supplied with full support documentation in spiral bound format
  • In the second part of the day, delegates focus on the specific time robbers they are faced with, whether they are self imposed or Imposed by others, and discuss ways of reducing or even eliminating the robbers. Feedback from the exercise is typed up and sent back to the delegates post-course to assist with action planning. Please email us for a sample of time robber solutions from previous time management training courses
  • Prior to delivery of the in house time management training course, we would host a telephone meeting to establish the nature of the delegate’s roles, their strengths and development areas and any aspects you would like us to emphasise.
