Time Management Training

Course Overview

Fact: Time is money and lots of it gets lost in disorganisation, disruption and chaos.

Do you ever wonder where your workday disappears to? This workshop helps you organise and prioritise for greater workplace efficiency. You will learn to get a grip on your office space, organise your work flow, learn how use your planner effectively, say no without guilt, and delegate some of your work to other people. This workshop is full of ideas for organising your work area and your paperwork and working on the “right” things.

This workshop includes dynamic trainee/trainer interactions and discussions, written and oral exercises, voice recordings, case studies, reflection, quizzes and a workbook for each participant to take back to the workplace.

Target Audience
