Course Overview


The aim

To help individuals focus on making the most of their time to the benefit of their work and personal lives.

About the programme

Not every individual is a manager or can delegate work to others. Many people must learn that making time work for them is a key life-skill. This highly motivational drama, addressed to individuals and team members at every level, focuses on three essential elements of time management in a practical, down-to-earth way that is easy to remember: prioritising and planning, dealing with people, and working procedures.

In a realistic office setting, meet one individual who is totally disorganised; one who is so organised that she spends too much time rescheduling her personal organiser; and another who is let down by the first two! They realise that planning and prioritising are all necessary for their tasks, and that even minor interruptions like phone calls have to be dealt with. These are classic problems that can crop up in any busy office, and can reduce individual and team productivity if they're not dealt with correctly. 

Learning to be assertive and saying 'no' are vital skills, and learners will be sent back to their desks determined to make every second count. The programme is also accompanied by a useful self-study workbook to motivate all course delegates.
