DESCRIPTION

To keep up with the demands of a busy job requires many skills. We must be able to handle not only the technical challenges of our jobs but also the demands of a heavy workload, getting things done on time and deal with the people behind all those competing demands.

To do so, we must learn how to manage our time effectively. We must be able to organise and plan our work, manage interruptions and handle time wasters. We must also be able to prioritise our work and keep to our plans as far as possible without being unhelpful or unco-operative.

OBJECTIVE

The objective of this one day workshop is to assist participants in developing key time management skills so as to optimise use of their time and help them get more out of their day.
