Time Management

Do you ever...

  1. Feel frustrated at the end of the day that you have not achieved what you wanted to do?
  2. Lack direction and running in ever decreasing circles? · Have a growing "to do" list?
  3. Want more "life" and less "work" in your day?
  4. Find others seem to rob you of your time?
  5. Have too many meetings that don't achieve what you expect?

We guess you have tried a number of things and maybe pills might help? Well, we don't have any, but we can help you.

The blurb on benefits: ·

We might not be able to keep you regular (we recommend lots of roughage); we can help you be more organised

  • Achieve key goals and priorities
  • Feel more in control and more fulfilled (yes we help at home too)
  • Reduced levels of stress and better work/life balance
  • And much, much more…

What can you expect?

Our workshop is the usual mix of group discussion and input from the trainer (hopefully not boring - although this can reduce stress through sleep being induced). During the workshop, there will be plenty of time and opportunity to exchange ideas and ask questions - though we never overrun (wouldn't do at a time management workshop).

To support you we provide an inexpensive (to us and free to you) workbook crammed with ideas, tips and tools, just in case sleep did catch you up and you miss something.

Our Trainer - Craig Williams

Craig has worked with a wide range of public and public sector organisations (he really has) and has considerable business and line management experience. Craig enjoys working with participants to help them identify how they can, maximise their potential. He wrote this and so would like you to think he has some wit.
