As Time Goes By – A Time Management Masterclass

Fundamental knowledge and skills that positively contribute to making more effective use of your time.


    In-House sessions are available upon request.



    One of the paradoxes about time is that there never seems to be enough of it! Yet we have the whole of time at our disposal. We have time for anything but not everything! It is not time we are short of it is how we CHOOSE to consume it that needs attention.

    It is free – it isn’t subject to recession, interest rates, or inflation. You cannot buy it, sell it, or store it. It is the only aspect of our lives where we are truly equal – every human being is given 24 hours a day. It is personal and it is all yours. Only you can spend it. You can spend it wisely or waste it.

    This course is designed to help you tighten up in many areas of your own self-management. The action steps I have in this course are simple and practical – yet the cumulative effect can be radical.


    Module Purpose:

    This module will equip the learner, and also enhance established strengths, with a range of knowledge and skills that are fundamental to positively contributing to making more effective use of time available each day.


    General Learning Objectives:

    At the conclusion of this workshop participants will learn how to:

    ANALYZE the problems of time management and decide how to deal with them.

    DEMOSTRATE managing priorities for less stress.



    Who Should Attend:

    Managers of any discipline, whose organizational role requires them to organize their own time and that of their team members. Increasingly more is expected of us both at work and in our private lives. The demands on our time are ever present. Time is a valuable resource. Through this course, you will develop a framework and understanding of tools and methods available, that are needed to achieve better time management. You can apply these methods to your daily routines and schedules.


    Learning Methodology:

    Learning should be through a combination of trainer led instruction, audio-visual materials, group work, role plays and student participation in group discussions, simulation games, diagnostic exercises, and feedback questions. The goal is to lead the participants towards learning objectives. The program will be delivered in a training atmosphere that encourages two-way communication in a non-threatening, ‘open’ and enjoyable environment.

    The training program will meet the learning needs because of the interaction and group participation that will be required from each participant. As we work in a relaxed and non-threatening manner, each participant can adjust and warm to the learning atmosphere in their own way. Everything that trainees do or say has relevance and trainer comments and suggestions will be given. We will encourage natural learning methods where their work situations will be brought into the training wherever possible with role-plays, references to their own experiences, and of course their trainers experience. All training will have a direct relevance and association with their work.
