Goal Setting & Time Management
Members: £55.00 + VAT
Non-members: £99.00 + VAT
09:30 - 13:00 St Helens Chamber

Is it Time Management or is it Action Management?

However you view it, it comes down to the fact many of us never seem to have time for what matters most.

Developing techniques to make more intelligent use of time, and to prioritise and effectively manage a challenging workload can lead to a more productive workforce getting more important work done in less time and with less stress.

This seminar looks at these questions from a different angle, by developing “Focus” and maximising the 80/20 rule. This seminar will open the door for attendees who never seem to have time to get to the bottom of their in-tray, and find very little time for themselves and for creative thinking.

Delegates will learn how to:

• Identify their own particular time wasters and adopt strategies for reducing them • Recognise the variety of causes of procrastination and apply relevant techniques to overcome these • Clarify and prioritise objectives and goals, by creating more planning time • Maximise the 80/20 rule • Use practical techniques for organising work
