Effective Time Management

Managing our time well is an important contributor to business success and personal life enjoyment. The ability to understand our time management habits, and plan and prioritise effectively are key to our being able to meet key business and personal goals and objectives. In addition, identifying those things that are ‘time wasters’ or are ‘urgent but unimportant’ is part of the key to successful time management. By managing time more effectively, individuals can expect more success and fulfilment in their business and personal lives.

How do we train and support you?

Building on over 40 years combined experience in human resource learning and development, the tutors utilize an experiential learning approach to their programs. This methodology of learning provides an opportunity for learners to engage with, experience and apply the learning in a practical way and also provides the opportunity for learners to receive feedback on their newly applied skills. The opportunity is also provided to learners to reflect on the full learning experience and how this might be of value to them in the achievement of their learning goals.

To assist and continue with skills development, we facilitate via email a post learning reflective practice utilising skills practice sessions recorded during the course. This assists delegates in embedding new learning, gives further support and enables them to define any further actions required.

This program offers one to one or group coaching as an additional element to further support the delegate and embed the learning process.
