This is a set of training course materials for a basic time management course for anyone who would benefit from help with prioritising and planning their workload.
Training course contents:
Prioritising and planning are crucial elements required by everyone in their business and personal life. Without planning your time and prioritising what is important to you, it is impossible to identify with the activities that are most productive. Where we are not focused on the elements that make us effective, we can begin to waste time and energy on the myriad of mundane tasks that tend to appear and this can lead to stress and anxiety.
This short training course will provide your participants with an awareness of the areas that they can improve in their day to day planning, as well as giving them some tips for dealing with popular time management issues.
