Time management is about making the best use of your time. However this is easier said than done – particularly at this time when organisations are being required to do more for less. If you think time management approaches will help you keep control of your workload then this interactive and participative course is for you!

Overall aim

This one day course is designed to increase awareness of your own time management, and to help you identify practical steps to improve your effectiveness in the workplace.  Through individual exercises and group discussions you will get the opportunity to identify major time stealers at work and formulate action plans to overcome them.  This course will help you identify:

  • effective prioritisation skills
  • controlling time and tasks techniques
  • assertive tricks to manage interruptions and handle disruptions

 Course content

In today’s climate it is essential individuals can manage the demands on their time. The course explores what helps and hinders achieving priorities and presents tips and techniques for how to improve the use of time available.

This course will help you to learn:

  • how time management can help with productivity
  • how and when to say “no” without offending
  • how to establish short and long term goals to achieve results
  • how to sustain these improvements

Who is the course aimed at?

This course is provided by SCVO and is aimed at individuals within the third sector who want to learn practical tips on how to deal with their working day effectively and feel ‘in control’.  It is designed to help those who want to strengthen their time management and to have ways to react positively at work when others demand their time.
