Time Management Training Course
This course is now part of our online training calendar - book below!
Time is one of the most important assets at work and everyone has a responsibility to ensure it is well managed. This doesn’t always mean being ‘maxed’ out – it’s about getting balance into your life to ensure your priorities are taken care of.
This training course will help you develop a strategy for ‘event control’ and give you a range of tools and techniques to help you plan and organise yourself to be effective.
You will learn about:
Your own work style and how this helps and hinders your time management
How to establish and plan in your own priorities
How to plan work around your most productive times
How to deal with interruptions so they cause minimal impact
Avoid procrastination and ‘swallow the frog’!
Setting goals with time lines and milestones
How to decide if a task is urgent, or important or both
How to make your outlook or diary work for you
Who should attend this training course?
Time management is a key competency for all people at work and this programme will benefit anyone who has any element of control and influence about when they do things.
I found this course very refreshing. When I set out to pursue this, I was expecting some diary management processes and tools which I thought would be good for the test team. In fact what we got was way better.
The training course revolves around understanding behaviours. This includes your own behaviour and interaction with other people’s behaviours that can cause time management to be impacted by various types of distraction.
There was also a good section on understanding what the difference is between important and urgent and how to manage it.
The trainer created a good environment where everyone was able to contribute and learn.
I think anyone that regularly finds themselves under pressure with priority tasks, tight deadlines and works in an open plan office could benefit from this course.

There never seems enough time in the day; we can’t create more of it, so we have to get better at using what we have.
