Time Management

Brought to you by Cambridge Network

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.

About the event

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 one day programme 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

Outcomes

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?

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. 

Pre-work

Participants will be required to log their work activities for a typical day or two, prior to the programme.  This will be analysed during the event to help see what happens during a typical working day and where improvements can be made.

Post course actions

At the end of the day participants will be asked to write a letter to themselves of actions and good intent – these will be collected and returned six weeks afterwards to help reinforce the lessons learnt!
