Program Length: 1 Day

In today’s fast-paced world, there is no doubt that we are all busy. In terms of the business world, more and more organizations are using fewer people to do more work than before. And factors like tight deadlines, last minute changes and preparations, unpredictable emergencies, ever-changing schedules, technology, and the overall pace of the office all add to the pressure of managing time. More than ever we need to be effective in planning, organizing, and controlling our time.

If you find yourself constantly working against time, being reactive instead of proactive, always feeling like there’s never enough time in a day to get everything accomplished, and simply stressed out, then you need Time Management training.

This one-day session will give you the strategies and techniques you need to make the most of your most precious asset- time. This session will assist you to analyze your own strengths and weaknesses, revisit your own goals and values, set your own priorities, manage the expectations of others and become more effective in the workplace.

Delivery: This course is taught virtually through Zoom.
