Time Management Tools

Getting more from your most precious resource

We all get 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, but some of us seem to use that time more effectively. This course looks at a range of proven and effective tools to help participants to organise their lives and make the most of their limited time.

This practical course will provide participants with the tools and skills to better manage their time and make the most of this precious resource.

By taking a strategic and proactive approach, we provide a framework for planning time usage more effectively and shifting focus from activity to results.

While developing a time-sensitive mindset, we support participants to identify personal barriers to effective use of time and offer a suite of tools, techniques and templates to make the process easy and enjoyable.

  • Personal organisation strategies
  • Revaluing time as a resource
  • The Eisenhower Urgent/Important Matrix
  • Grouping tasks for opportunities of scale
  • Dealing with procrastination
  • Ditching distractions and setting limits
  • Interpersonal tools for time management
