Getting A Grip On Time

Getting A Grip On Planning And Prioritising

This course equips your team with the core principles of planning and prioritising without trying to force a particular method that is not flexible enough to cater for individual learning styles.

You can expect to walk away from this session with powerful examples on how to apply the principles of planning and prioritising. You will be able to fully engage with your diary systems and be more proactive in assessing the difference between the urgent and the important work. You will have the tools to handle ‘stress’ days with increased ease and feel more in control of your life.

Time Wasters

Getting A Grip On Time Wasters

In today’s flat-out busy world we rarely take time to discuss and brainstorm solutions to everyday time-stealers. This is a very powerful and practical module – you’ll get the chance, with your workmates, to solve specific problems relating to your work environment.

You can expect to walk away how to stop wasting time in meetings, manage your inbox, monitor unnecessary phone calls and make your work space distraction free.

 

 

 

Delegation and Communication

Getting A Grip On Delegation And Communication

Delegation is a vital management tool – learn how to use it successfully. You don’t need to work longer and harder, and feel as if you constantly spin in ever-widening circles. Successful delegation will decrease your stress levels and resurrect your feelings of control.

You will learn how to delegate effectively and get the buy-in of your associates and staff. And expect to feel the earth move when you learn the oh-so-important skill of how to say ‘No’ graciously!

Beyond Time Management

Program for CEOs and Senior Management

If you’re a leader in your organisation and want to uncover ways to plug the gaps in your company’s profitability and productivity, this may be the programme for you.

Rather than just a major focus on the regular time management issues such as planning and prioritising we drill down together, discussing some of the latest findings and trends to keep you ahead of the pack.

We’ll also uncover practical strategies to deal with information overload, interruptions, poorly run meetings, and the gamut of common time problems from the perspective of a senior executive.
