Time Management

Introduction

With increasing pressures on workload, often combined with higher expectations in terms of delivery, it is vital we can effectively manage our time in a way which gives us high productivity and performance but which retains our energy, enthusiasm and creativity.

This workshop looks at a number of factors we need to take into consideration in order to more productively utilise the time we have as well as sharing a number of simple, but effective strategies and tactics which can help reduce the feeling of overwhelm and improve focus and productivity.

Aims

This interactive workshop is designed to encourage you to really reflect on where and how you currently use your time, and how you might make changes which could significantly and positively impact on your effectiveness, your productivity, your workload and your well-being. This is an opportunity to take a step back and work on your role rather than in your role.

  • An understanding of some of the core factors which can hinder the effective use of our time, including less obvious factors such as our own energy levels, our mind-set and the actions of others

  • An understanding of the concept of proactive thinking and how this might support your efforts to achieve more, with less risk of procrastination or stress
