Who’s this course for?
​Intermediate: Comprehend, Apply and Analyse


If you feel constantly stressed by your workload and consider yourself time-poor, this course will get you back in control. Brush up on your time management skills or send a colleague.


What you’ll learn:
Increase productivity without working longer hours. When you manage your time well, you race through tasks and your job feels less stressful. But sometimes it is difficult to stay focused.

This one-day course will help you identify the common behaviours preventing you from managing your time effectively. You will also learn the difference between productive and non-productive time, and how to use the time that you do have more wisely.

Please note: You will need to keep a time log for a week before the course so that we can use this during the session. It will help you understand where your time goes and how you lose focus.

After, you’ll be able to…

  • Create a ‘to do’ list based around priorities and delegate tasks
  • Say “no” and handle interruptions more professionally
  • Manage your top time wasters and deal with procrastination
  • Plan your meetings and their outcomes
  • Deal with email and telephone communications efficiently
