Course Overview

Achieve better results, by understanding your job role and setting realistic objectives

Time management problems often begin when people take on too much. Effective use of your time and scheduling your tasks requires a clear understanding of your role, your objectives and what is required of you.

Discover how to work better with colleagues by prioritising and delegating key tasks

Many people believe it’s quicker to do tasks themselves. This workshop explores how delegating will benefit you and your colleagues – and introduces you to the steps of effective delegation and making better use of your time. 

Reduce time spent on paperwork, meetings and solving other people’s problems

Good time managers apply 'lean' methodology and prioritise what is urgent and important. They then save time through good planning and manage distractions.

Learn how to cope with stress, in order to remain calm under pressure

Stress-related problems cost the UK economy over £7 billion, each year. This workshop shows you how to make the most of positive stress – and suggests ways of reducing negative stress. Mindful or mind full. Taking breaks makes you more productive by providing valuable downtime.
