Time is like a river; it keeps on flowing even though we get caught up in its turbulence and can’t seem to come up for air. Later, we realize that we are out of balance and off course both personally and professionally. Without effective time management skills, new and constantly changing corporate objectives can be overwhelming, leaving us feeling out of control. Decision-making often resides at levels outside our own sphere of influence. Management expects us to handle more with fewer resources. Putting out fires and responding to multiple interruptions and changing priorities, becomes the bulk of our workday. Consequently, at the end of the week, month and year, we have not met our own objectives and feel disenchanted about the misuse of our time. If this sounds like your experience, then this Time Management Skills Workshop is for you. It focuses on helping participants to proactively manage time for themselves first, which ultimately leads to serving corporate objectives more effectively. This essential course helps participants understand how their own behavior contributes to poor time management. It teaches students goal setting and how to work smarter while balancing personal objectives for success.
Objectives Participants will learn to:
Utilize a time management audit to understand where their time is actually being spent
Assess their own behavior style to better manage time with others
Gauge their current life balance and make changes where needed
Establish long and short term goals that meet both work and personal objectives
Address their tendency to procrastinate and waste time
Say NO to take back control and manage time more effectively
Reorganize themselves and their workplace for success
Address those things on the agenda that "appear" urgent
Schedule in reverse to better manage time and resources to meet deadlines
"I enjoyed the workshop and to be truthful, more than I thought I would. I knew that time management is an issue for me but the class and information you gave has given me a new perspective to view my tasks and my day. When you get use to doing things the same way whether they are effective or not, it can make it hard to see a better way!"View Full Letter (PDF)

"I wanted to personally thank you for coming in on June 2nd to present the Time Management Skills course. I found the material, as well as your personable skills
presenting, extremely valuable. Your understanding of the time management
challenges that we are faced with in this multitasking environment is refreshing.
Using the tools you provided, I am more productive and organized during my work day.
I look forward to attending other training classes you offer and I would highly
recommend you and your coursework to other professionals, even to people who
think they have a handle on their time."View Full Letter (PDF)

"I got value from this class and appreciated the time. I now start the day from the calendar rather than e-mail and have become more effective at managing time and priorities. Overall, the most important thing has been to truly focus on what adds value and makes a difference. Thanks for a great class. It has made a difference in lifestyle. May 1st, I will revisit the workbook and see what else I can do to improve." Manager

"The course was great and our facilitator was exceptional! I didn’t look at my email this morning till after I had settled in and got my calendar in order. It was great! And the word "no", has come out of my mouth a lot today. As well as, "schedule something in Outlook for us to discuss it." Great class. Thanks again." IT Manager
