We offer both:

These can be tailored to your specific needs.

You may find the following will help with the development of your time management skills training.

What is a good time management training course about?

Time management training" is a system of thought and action that takes into account the fact that your time and energy is limited.

1. That you have only so much time.
2. That you have only so much energy.

But you are facing an unlimited demand on your time and energy.

Since you cannot do it all, then you must prioritize.

You must decide to prioritize FOR some things, at the expense of NOT doing other things.

Time management training is intended to put prioritization into practical action by learning to do the most productive work at the expense of the least productive work.
The result is that you stop allowing your own bad habits or other people's bad habits or poor organisational systems to make you less productive than you otherwise would have been.

Remember that, over the long run, those people who are prioritizing their tasks according to:

1. Value and
2. Deadline pressure

Will make more rapid progress compared to those people who are simply reacting blindly to whatever is happening "in the moment".

Time management training is for anyone who needs to:

  1. Create the most value possible
  2. Operate according to strict deadlines
  3. Work in what seems to be a chaotic environment
  4. Work alongside some people who can occupy your time but without adding anything of value.
  5. Avoid having too many "busy but non-productive" days.
  6. Learn how to focus your mind and stop being so easily distracted from the task that you were supposed to be working on.
  7. Learn how to organise large volumes of work.
  8. Manage your boss or customer who can interfere and take you off track.
  9. Stop yourself from diluting your efforts too much: trying to do too many things simultaneously, so that you make little progress on many tasks; instead of remaining more focused on a restricted number of tasks and thus make better progress on the fewer most important things.

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.

If any, or all, of the above list applies to you: then you would benefit from attending a time management training course.

Learn the difference between being "busy" and "productive"

You are not paid according to how MUCH work you do.
You are paid for how much perceived value you add to your organisation.

Learn the time management matrix

Do the higher value work first: even if you don't want to.

Apply the Pareto principle (80/20 Rule) to time management issues

Pareto principle states that 80% or more of your value, to the organisation, is contained in 20% or less of your activity.

What are the six functions that add 80% of your value to others?

How to prioritise using decision matrices

Think on paper.

Don't turn the problem over and over in your mind - Work it out on paper!
Don't turn it over --- Work it out!

How to beat the three most common time wasters

The three most common time wasters:

  1. Other people that waste your time
  2. Your own bad habits
  3. Poor systems

Strive to limit the impact of all three.

How to plan ahead

Spend at least one hour each day planning ahead

1. Break large tasks down into numerous smaller subsets.
2. Allocate the right person with the rights skills to do each smaller subset
3. Within a specified time period
4. Monitor and check the feedback
5. Make the necessary adjustments as you learn more.

How to handle interruptions

Don't let interruptions extend for an infinite duration.
Work out a form of words that will allow you to get the:
1. Maximum benefit from the interruption.
2. In the minimum time.
3. Without causing offence to the listener.

How to say "no" to time wasters

Just say "no" to incessant:
1. Office gossip
2. Love affair scandals
3. Talking about TV shows
4. Bitching about the management

How to delegate in the right way for the right reasons

Delegate as much lower value tasks, as you can, to the right people, for the right reasons only.

Delegation will:

1. Free you up for higher value work.
2. Train the team
3. Balance the load
4. Give the job to the person best suited to do it.

Develop your personal effectiveness to get more done in the same amount of time

Efficiency means creating more value per hour for your customers, your organisation and yourself.

Develop your personal initiative and beat procrastination

Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off what you don't like.
Procrastination is the bad habit of putting off what you should do because you are "not in the mood".
Procrastination is one of the worst habits you can be afflicted with.

The antidote to procrastination is personal initiative:
"Personal initiative is the ability to do what you know you should do --- even if you are not in the mood to do it".

Develop your own individualised plan of action

Act according to your plan not your mood.

Don't be a moody individual

Instead strive to be more:

  1. Goal focused
  2. Well organised
  3. Well planned out
  4. Consistent
  5. Energetic and
  6. Pleasant company

A good time management course can do you good!
