Product Description

Effective Time Management

Time is the only commodity that cannot be banked, stored or saved. It can only be spent. Effective time management is the core skill of life. To be effective every manager must be a superb time manager. However, many managers spend too much time on low priority work.

 

This challenging, fast moving course is about how to get things done. It looks at the key areas of personal planning, setting goals, communicating, delegating, running meetings and making decisions.

 

The time management training asks participants to focus on key issues by completing the sentence ‘I could double my output if…’

 

Good time management is an invaluable asset. People who get things done feel in control. They have more confidence, enthusiasm, energy and belief in themselves. Attending a effective time management course is an excellent use of time. The results last and last!
