Features and benefits

Time management problems often begin when people take on too much. Effective use of your time and scheduling your tasks requires a clear understanding of your role, your objectives and what is required of you. You will learn about:

  • Prioritising and delegating key tasks: Many people believe it’s quicker to do tasks themselves. This workshop explores how delegating will benefit you and your colleagues – and introduces you to the steps of effective delegation and making better use of your time.
  • Reducing time spent on paperwork, meetings and solving other people’s problems: Good time managers apply 'lean' methodology and prioritise what is urgent and important. They then save time through good planning and by managing distractions.
