In a world where change is constant and resources limited, the ability to respond to new challenges has become increasingly difficult.
Participants will learn:
How to make the most of the time you have: We all have 24 hours a day. Why is it that some people spin their wheels and can’t get things done on time, while others get the job accomplished in half the time?
How to eliminate unnecessary tasks: Learn to distinguish between what “must be done” versus what would be “nice to do” if we only had the time.
How to set priorities: Learn how to categorize projects, people, and interruptions according to the important criteria.
How to organize your work: Learn methods to improve efficiency, simplify the work, file work so that you can find it when you need it and clean up your desk!
How to avoid procrastination: “I work best under pressure” is a myth. Learn how to stop making excuses and get even unpleasant tasks over and done with.
How to create reasonable schedules: Learn how to write things down so that you don’t forget and schedule what you write down so that you do it.
How to handle interruptions and other time wasters: Learn who interrupts you and why, then learn how to eliminate the problems.
When to say “yes” and when to say “no”. What do you do when you’ve been asked to take on more work than you can handle? Say “no” and risk losing your job, or say “yes” and have the same problem when you can’t deliver. Learn the art of negotiating alternatives.
E Mail: Help or hindrance? Learn how to manage the E mail process so that it becomes a time saver not a time waster for you and others.
How to delegate work to others. Learn to delegate work effectively so that it gets done right the first time and does not end up back on your desk.
Methodology: This workshop includes lecturettes, group discussion, video, structured exercises and case studies. Also includes a pre-workshop assessment given to staff and management to identify specific time management skills that need improvement.
