Today, we have more demands on us than at any time in history at work and home. This has led to tighter deadlines, greater workload and competing priorities – it all adds up! In this topic you’ll learn skills and techniques to help you prioritize your work and avoid time wasters.

Course Code: VILT-TM

  • 90-minute live session delivered virtually or in-person (Perfect for use as part of a blended learning programme)

  • This is available for groups and teams

  • Part of our Core Library

We all know that time is highly elastic – sometimes a whole day seems to contract into just a few hours, and other days seem to stretch on forever. On different days, the clock seems to be either your best friend or your worst enemy.

However, there are ways you can regain control of your time, and ways you can use time’s elasticity to suit your own purposes. There are ways to manage your time so that you can improve both your efficiency (getting things done) and your effectiveness (getting things done right).

There are three keys to effective time management:
1. Planning - defining your purpose and your goals;
2. Prioritising - deciding what to do and when; and
3. Negotiating - agreeing parameters with other people.

This 90-minute workshop will help you to recognise just how precious your time is, and give you a range of techniques to effectively protect and manage your time for maximum productivity. Through practical exercises and an exploration of proven time management tools and techniques, you will develop the ability to plan, prioritise and negotiate your time. Confidently and effectively.

 

  • Have you ever imagined what you might achieve with one extra hour every day?
  • Do you ever look back on a busy day and wonder why you haven’t actually achieved anything meaningful?
  • Do you sometimes find it difficult to decide where to start and what to do next?
  • Do you experience multiple interruptions and distractions that seem to steal your time away?

  • Define your overall purpose and set meaningful goals to help you to achieve it
  • Prioritise your daily tasks in a structured and methodical way
  • Implement tools and techniques to manage interruptions and distractions
  • Negotiate your time commitments more effectively using a positive ‘no’

Focussing on What Matters

Focussing on What Matters

Course Code: VILT-FWM

  • 90-minute live session delivered virtually or in-person (Perfect for use as part of a blended learning programme)

  • This is available for groups and teams

  • Part of our Core Library

The focus of this 90-minute virtual session is to practise prioritisation. You will be asked to bring along a time log from a given day, and will use this to distinguish between the relative urgency and importance of your tasks, plotting them into a prioritisation matrix. You will leave with a prioritised plan of activities for the next working day. 

 

This short session is suitable for anyone who would like to learn a method of prioritisation that will improve their ability to focus on what really matters to become more successful, efficient and effective in their working life.
