Getting the most out of a 24-hour day is a constant challenge in our busy world: a bottomless inbox, tons of email, millions of meetings. Too much to do and not enough time to do it is a common problem many people face in the workplace. Although we can’t give you more hours in the day, we can teach you how to decide what to do and when to do it.
This high-energy, back-to-basics training program explains the fundamentals of time management: understanding the value of time, using proven ways to get the most out of a day, balancing work and home, eliminating time wasters, conquering procrastination, and more.
At this program’s conclusion, participants should be able to:
- List barriers to successful time management.
- Understand and demonstrate the use of to-do lists and the ABC prioritization technique.
- Explain the benefits and drawbacks of various calendar systems.
- Manage voicemail to reduce time spent checking messages.
- Write SMART goals and explain their benefit.
- Demonstrate how to say “no.”
- Delegate tasks and assignments.
