Time Management

Workplace Effectiveness through Time Management

 

Do you regularly find yourself saying “there are just not enough hours in the day”? Do you find yourself torn between the demands of work and your personal life?  You’re not alone.

Research shows that people feel busier now more than ever before. Advanced technologies create new challenges by allowing us to be contacted 24 hours per day, seven days per week via PD, email, and cell phones.  Shorter deadlines, competing priorities, and global business exacerbate the problem.  There are, however, steps you can take to regain control of your “to do” list.     

Our Time Management workshop will bring dramatic results and is born of extensive research on the techniques and strategies utilized by successful individuals and corporations.  We provide the tools and resources necessary to place control back into the hands of even the busiest folks in any level of your organization.  

THE TIME MANAGEMENT PROGRAM WILL:

  • Define “efficient” and “effective” and discuss the importance of each
  • Ask participants to ponder the question “Is this the best use of my time?”
  • Show how to manage interruptions such as phone calls, visitors, and emails
  • Reveal the remarkable impact of a proactive approach to time management
  • Accentuate the benefits of long-term planning
  • Provide insight for determining whether or not something is “important” or “urgent”
