An Introduction to Time Management

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Maximize productivity with effective time management strategies for success

“Either you run your day, or your day runs you”, says leadership expert Jim Rohn. We’ve all experienced missed deadlines, unwanted stress, lack of focus, and work and life imbalance. Regardless of what you do, where you do it, your title, or your tenure, we all have to-do lists that could use an extra hour. Distractions are everywhere, and there are a limited number of hours in a day. What’s most important is understanding your current barriers to managing multiple priorities, setting boundaries, and developing systems to improve the use of your time. By the end of this knowledge-building session you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize time management tips and how to implement them in the workplace
  • Discuss time wasters, challenges, obstacles, barriers, and approaches to prioritizing tasks
  • Demonstrate time management techniques and strategies to increase productivity and achieve daily tasks and long-term goals
  • Design your own personalized time management plan for your own ‘to do’ list

Goal Setting and Managing Priorities

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Get control of your projects and time once and for all!

The key isn’t to prioritize what is on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities”, said Stephen Covey. The essence of that quote is about using your time intentionally. You are in control of it. But how do
we know what to put on our schedule, what to prioritize? Easy, what are your goals? And if you don’t know what those are, then you are absolutely in the right place. In this knowledge building session you’ll be able to:

  • Recall the difference between goals and objectives
  • Interpret the difference between important and urgent activities
  • Illustrate how proactive planning can effectively manage time
  • Recognize barriers to achievement which can hinder success

The Essentials of Productivity and Efficiency

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Get more done in half the time without the stress!

We’ve all heard the phrase, “That meeting could have been an email”. No one likes to waste their time unnecessarily, and each of us has goals and priorities to focus on. While we know productivity is a
benchmark of success, what we don’t always know is how to supercharge it. The further up someone gets in their career, the more responsibilities they have, the more competing priorities they juggle. Efficiency is the answer. Because who wouldn’t like to get more done while no burning out or sacrificing their personal time? This knowledge-building session gives you the chance to:

  • Identify your own time management practices
  • Assess where you may be wasting valuable resources of time, energy, or money
  • Build a custom productivity toolbox to support your unique wants and needs
