WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?
This workshop is aimed at those who find they are not managing their time as effectively as they know they should be. “I just didn’t have enough time to…” is a very overused phrase in business today. Companies are looking for employees who can agree to an objective and then deliver quality results within the agreed timescales, be that a daily objective or a six-month business forecast. However, people and circumstances often result in objectives being agreed with little thought as to whether it is achievable or even worthwhile!
The module works with delegates firstly assessing how they manage their own time on a weekly basis. By creating a time matrix, delegates will be able to note what tasks they personally need to achieve and what tasks need to be delegated / binned. Often tasks are agreed due to the fear of upsetting the other person – the module helps attendees to say “no” to a task without causing offence or feeling guilty.
Finally, the module looks at the results of on-going ineffective time management and asks delegates to break old habits to adapt a more focused approach which will benefit everyone – at work and at home!
