Course description

This course is a brief time management course geared towards leaders, managers and people at all levels. We will cover topics such as minimising time wastage, goal setting, planning, procrastination, prioritising, making effective decisions, and delegation. In under 1 hour you will be able to apply a number of principles in to your own practices which will ensure that you become more effective within your professional and personal lives. Each lesson is less than 10 minutes which means that you are able to learn in any time gaps you have available, so no excuse! I have also provided 2 free time management tools that you can download at the end of the course and start to use immediately

It is important to note that we all have the same amount of time each day, but the difference between us is how we use that time. Most of us waste time on the job through variety of means - we make or receive personal phone calls, we may stretch breaks by several minutes on a regular basis and we may fail to plan our work and instead, react to things as they come. Generally, people who use time well have time for their tasks. Using time well gives us a sense of pride, while wasting it gives us a sense of guilt and frustration.

I have 15 years’ experience of managing and leading within a highly commercial environment, combined with 7 years’ experience of teaching Leadership, Management, Coaching and HR. This ensures that I can relate your learning to real life experience and help you put your learning in to context.

My Philosophy

I have had the pleasure of being managed by some fantastic leaders/managers in my career, and it has been great to take their best practice and apply it in the learning that I deliver within my courses. On the flipside I have also been managed by some leaders/managers who have clearly never attended a Leadership and Management course (or have not applied their learning!) and who have not understood that being a manager involves people, who are different and have different needs. These experiences have shaped me as a manager and a leader, and whether negative or positive, have all helped me to improve my own practices and techniques within management. This is one of the reasons why I love to train and teach across the whole spectrum of leaders – from aspiring managers, first line managers to senior managers, as we all have some excellent experience to share and can learn from each other. My philosophy within any of my courses is that we all know the right thing to do, we just don’t always know we know! It is my job to facilitate your learning and guide you through this process so that you can take your knowledge and have the confidence to be better leaders and managers within your own workplaces.

What do I know…..?

I know that studying, working and juggling family time can be a real challenge – I have a nearly teenage daughter, 3 step daughters, 2 grand-daughters and a big smelly Labrador dog, so I totally understand the challenges that you will face and I will help you.

And finally, I know that Friday nights are great especially at “wine o’clock” time – I am very partial to a glass of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and I will ensure we celebrate together (albeit virtually!) especially when you have achieved your qualification or finished your course. Your success will be a real opportunity for us all to celebrate!
