Time Management

This blended programme, consisting of a pre-workshop activity and a one-day face-to-face event, is focused on helping participants identify how they currently use time and what they might do to achieve greater time efficiency


Time - there is never enough of it. We could all use more, but there would not be such a need if we used the time we have more efficiently. How often do we find ourselves stuck in meetings that prevent us getting on with what we consider to be really important? How often do we find ourselves waylaid by colleagues wanting our time to resolve their problems? How often do have to spend time searching for an important document that has become buried beneath a mountain of routine correspondence? How often do we have to stay late or take work home to guarantee we can get that critical piece of work finished? Gaining control of your time requires a combination of strategic thinking and the adoption of time saving habits.

On this course, you will learn how you currently use your time, how to prioritise what really needs to be done and how to avoid the ‘thieves of time’ that plague all of us. Participants are asked to keep a time log for three days prior to attending the workshop and to bring it with them to the event.



The aim of this course is to provide you with ideas and practical skills to manage your time more effectively, helping you prioritise those activities that are most important to your success.
