Good time management training

Many of us have days when we are busy, but feel we are not making progress.

Some of us have days when we are busy but feel we are going backwards!
Possibly, you sometimes feel overwhelmed and stressed by the volume of the work to be done and the size of the challenge ahead.

It this is true then that a good time management training course would help you?

To learn the difference between being "busy" and "productive".

There is a difference between being busy and being productive.

Too many people are busy going backwards, making no progress or doing things that are too trivial.
We need to reverse that trend so people are always productive: i.e. they are always adding value.
We are not paid for what we know: we are not paid according to our need: we are paid according to how much value we add to the marketplace.

So the key question is: How can you add more value to others, per hour?

Time Management Training

Time Management Training

Most people feel they need help with time management. How can you get more done in the same amount of time? How can you stop other people wasting your time? If you want to know how, then click here to find out more about our time management training course.

To apply the Pareto principle (80/20 Rule)

In time management setting, the 80/ 20 rule states that 80% OR more of the value people add to the organisation, will come from 20% or less of what they do.
I.e. that much of what people do in the week, is low value; and a smaller portion of work is high value.
The trick is to figure out what five or six things add the most value: and then spend as much time as you can on that smaller number of things.

How to prioritise using decision matrices

Decision matrix is a method of thing on paper

They help you to make faster and more accurate decisions, especially in the context of a meeting where people disagree.

There are three types of decision matrix:

Yes or no?
Which one, what kind?
What order?

It is important that you can use decision matrix with easy, precision and speed.

How to beat the three most common time wasters

The three common time wasters are:

  1. Other people who spend time talking about non-work issues
  2. You own bad habits and weaknesses (poor memory, or untidiness)
  3. Bad systems that don't work

The idea is to take each category and solve it by finding countermeasures to reduce the impact of each.

How to handle interruptions

Interruptions can steal your time by fragmenting your concentration to such an extent that you can't make any progress on anything. As soon as you get started: you are interrupted again.

You must handle interruptions by learning how to do three things simultaneously
get the maximum value from the interruption,
in the MINIMUM time,
without causing offence to the listener.

How to maximise your personal effectiveness

You can maximise your effectiveness by asking and answering one question over and over again:
What is the MOST valuable use of my time right now?
Answer that question and commit to its answer.

Say "no" to time wasters

Don't let the people who are time wasters drag you into their gang.
Be polite, but be firm.

How to delegate in the right way for the right reasons

The right reasons to delegate tasks are:
1. To free you up for the higher value work
2. Because the person is the best person for the job
3. Because the person has the time to do the job

Develop your personal effectiveness to get more done in the same amount of time.
Efficiency is not about doing more work; it is about doing higher value work.
It is about maximising the value of the work done per hour. Not the amount of work done per hour.
So think quality (value) rather than quantity (amount).
