Course Aim

In the time management training coure we will explore and answer the following questions: What exactly is time management? and What are time management skills, behaviours and practices? Through the discussions, exercises and activities that will be tailored to the participants' needs you will:

  • Know how to develop the skills of the effective time manager
  • Know how to write a manageable to do list
  • Have identified your main time wasters and have techniques to control them
  • Prepared a personal action plan to develop strong time management skills


  • The benefits of time management. Your goal: what could you do with an extra hour per day? The participants will develop drivers for changing current habits and creating new ones.
  • The skills and practices of the effective time manager. The participants identify habits, behaviours and characterisitcs of the effective time manager.

  • The habits of highly effective people. This section moves on from the previous section to explore the habits identified and determine the importance of them and how to challenge their current behaviours to develop them. Content typically covers:

How to identify goals and prioritise them; how to create manageable objectives and tasks; scheduling day/week taking into account unplanned and unexpected activities; analysing time to understand current use and identify where time is wasted; determining ways to minimise or eliminate time wasters; understanding procrastination and how to address it.

  • Writing to do lists effectively. Many people write to do lists however end up being governed by them, many others have given up writing them. This section will explore how to write your to do list so that you control them rather than they control you and link back to prioritisation and scheduling. How to plan for the month, week and days to enable better prioritisation and task closure.
  • Delegation and its role in time management. This section will explore the importance of delegation and how to use effectively whether the delegator or delegatee.
  • Throughout the day the participants will explore how they can use the techniques and approaches to manage their work and time more effectively, the barriers they will face, how to overcome them and measure their progress to help achieve their goal.
  • Identify skills and strengths and the areas for development. Development of personal action plan.
