Who Should Attend?
Managers, supervisors, salespeople, customer service staff – and anyone who feels there are not enough hours in the day to complete their workload!
About The Programme
The most valuable resource available to managers and staff is ‘Time’. It is a common complaint, that ‘there are not enough hours in the day’. Yet very often we end up devoting the majority of available time to low priority work. The potential to achieve more in your job and career is partly dependent on how well your time is managed. This is a highly participative programme in which delegates will be given a series of individual exercises and guidance for improving their use of time.
- To enable delegates to clearly identify work-related and personal time-wasters, and learn ways to overcome them
- To enable delegates to identify their Time Management style
- To understand and identify their roles at work
- To learn to become more proactive through setting SMART(ER) objectives, in line with key result areas
- To introduce delegates to practical tools to use at work, and ensure they make time to focus on priority tasks
- To learn to organize workspaces for maximum efficiency
- To identify motivating factors that will lead to overcoming procrastination (putting things off)
- To master the techniques of effective delegation
- To learn assertiveness skills to overcome work overload
- To set criteria to avoid stress

Before the course each delegate will be asked to complete a Pre-Course Briefing Form to determine their individual objectives for attending the course. These objectives will be used by the Tutor to give on-target training that is focused on the individual delegates.
At the end of the course each delegate will be asked to complete a Personal Development Plan that can be used as part of future appraisals, and that will also be an important tool for management reference.
