Time Management and Personal Effectiveness

Time Management and Personal Effectiveness - 1 Day

Applicable For: All staff

Overview

The world of work is becoming ever more hectic. A recent study by the Economic and Social Research Council reported that in the UK 80% of men and 71% of women were unhappy with the number of hours they work.

This increased workload is caused by many factors; greater volumes of competition, ever increasing volumes of information, rising customer demands and greater complexity of legal and compliance issues to name but a few. In this increasingly complex and stressful environment, traditional time management techniques alone are not enough to help managers perform in an effective manner. In a world where it is impossible to do everything, what matters is that managers have the confidence and the ability to choose to do the right thing.

This course will provide managers with sound organisational techniques, but will also provide them with an insight in how to manage their own response to pressure and how to think “smarter” about what needs to be done and by whom.

Delegates will leave with an enhanced perspective about what it means to be effective in their role, proven techniques for taking control of their jobs, and valuable insights into how they can function more effectively and healthily under pressure.
