Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand."

Old Aphorism

Everyone needs to deal with incoming “stuff” on a daily basis, whether they are mails, emails, calls, information packs, messages, your own thoughts or even random events like the breakdown of your car. We need to deal with a collection of unrelated stuff at work and at home using only “one” mind. If you increase your efficiency in dealing with these, you stand to gain enormously.

Many systems exits and numerous productivity books and courses attempt to impose one system or other to their audience. These systems prove to be effective at first, but seem to get forgotten over time and people fall back to their bad habits once more. Over time, as more systems are learned and tested, a sense of hopeless develops that no matter what time management system is used, the result is never good.

 "This course is continuously updated to reflect the progress in productivity tools as well as new methodologies that help delegates to become more productive in the long term."

Our Approach

At Skills Converged, we deliver the Time Management course continuously and we have realised that imposing any particular system on delegates does not necessarily lead to increased productivity. As a result, we have tailored this course to make it as effective as possible not just in the short term, but also in the long term.

To achieve this, the course focuses on fundamental principles, guidelines, attitudes and organisation systems. Based on these principles and examples of such systems, delegates form their own system based on their own life style. In our experience, this has proven to be much more effective and even months after the course, our delegates report that they have become more productive as a result of this course. We are proud of this and continuously work to improve this course.

In this day-long highly practical course delegates will learn:

Time management has proven to be an essential skill for success. It is therefore no wonder that time management courses are one of the most popular training programmes among aspiring businesses and high achieving individuals. Training materials in this course including slides, trainer manuals, work book and interactive exercises have been researched and designed seeking to address such demands from our clients. In particular careful attention has been paid to recent technological progress and use of ever more sophisticated time management software. Effectiveness of such technologies is explored in the course along with guidelines to use them correctly considering human psychological needs and limitations.
