“You can’t buy time, save time or stop time – although we may continue to use these terms. You can only use it – wisely or otherwise.” Michael Armstrong.

Being able to manage your time effectively is a key skill for staff at all levels to ensure that they are making the best contribution to the organisation in the time they are at work, and can also help them in their life outside work. The impact of time management training on employees can be huge, and results not only in more effective performance but also reduced stress and improved focus.

Duration of course:

1 day

Participants are asked to complete a time-log for up to two weeks before the course, to help them understand how they currently use their time.
