Time Management Training
If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve probably applied a lot of schedules in your life. From going to school to studying on weekdays and meeting up with your friends or just rolling in a blanket burrito-style on weekends, everything just seems to be planned and, let’s be honest, a little monotonous. We all find ourselves looking for that sweet little spot of comfort in our schedule to just relax and forget about everything for a while. Well, we believe in that too! In a fast-paced world where you need to work for your bosses and address your customers, you’ll need every bit of that sweet spot to relax. This training session is designed to make you a more efficient worker, allowing you to spend less time doing crucial things and organise goals to make the most out of your days as a professional.
Objectives for the Time Management Training
Specific learning objectives include:
- Better organize yourself and your workspace for peak efficiency
The first step to managing your time effectively as a professional is to manage both yourself and your workspace. By simply cleaning up that work desk and having specific designations on where your items should be, you’ll no longer have to use five minutes to walk around the office looking under your colleagues’ tables for that pencil holder. Now, that’s just one five-minute scenario, but this one aspect of workplace organisation can save you a total of one hour if you’re the type that has to look for more stuff before working! You’ll also learn how to effectively set up schedules and stay on track in order to save more time and get rid of all those wasted minutes. Do it right, and you’ll look like you’re not even breaking a sweat!
- Understand the importance of, and the most useful techniques for, setting and achieving goals
Goals do not only exist to give you a sense of purpose. Indeed, the reason why goals are such an asset in human history is that they eliminate all confusion and ambiguity about what you must do. If you’re a call center agent, you need to fix a number of problems via phone and within the fastest possible time, usually specified by the companies you’re working for. However, this is just a short-term goal. There are various kinds of goals out there, and each one of them can have varying importance in your working life and even in your everyday life. Merely setting them up helps avoid philosophical confusion and saves crucial time, and achieving them gives you the motivation to keep going. In that regard, we’ll teach you the standard SMART goal-setting tool and various other tips tricks that more efficient people may not be aware of.
- Identify the right things to be doing and develop plans for doing them
If a racing course has a fixed road for racers to drive on, so too must goals have constraints that efficient workers have to follow. After all, not having any sense of these constraints can not only delay you from reaching your goal, but can even have catastrophic consequences. The goal of any efficient employee is to get to the destination using the least amount of effort and losing the least amount possible. Having a sense of direction, learning how to develop plans to reach your goals and abiding by these plans can not only make your work week less stressful, but even your entire life as it can prepare you for various things such as learning how to squeeze the most money for your days in retirement. If the art of setting goals provides you with a sense of purpose, then the art of planning them is what allows you to make these goals a reality and in the best possible way. Here, we discuss how to improve your planning skills and so much more.
- Learn what to delegate and how to delegate well
We can all agree that not everything can be controlled and managed at once, and employers and businesses often understand this. This is why sometimes, efficient employees delegate tasks to other people, or even just let things get done on their own. You don’t have to stare at a printing machine all the time just to make sure everything checks out, and doing so might even cost you some highly-needed time to work on other matters. Of course, we’re also aware that too much delegating can have dire consequences, so the key is to know when and which tasks to delegate, and how to effectively delegate them. Our teacher will provide you tips on the matter and more.
- Take control of things that can crash workplace productivity
Sometimes, things can go wrong and ruin whatever goals and plans we’ve already set up for the day. There are things which are really out of our control, but there are also places where we can actually do something about it. Does the current goal have an inherent flaw or ambiguity which can prevent you and your team from acting on it? Are the plans not being implemented strictly enough? These and various other questions will be tackled in the question of potential things that can prevent employees from being more productive.
