Have you ever felt as if you don't have enough hours in the day to finish what you have planned to do, while others manage to accomplish their goals on time? Are you constantly rushing from task to task without making significant progress and wondering how other people manage to fit everything into one day? The truth is, we all have the same amount of time in a day, they are simply using their time more efficiently.

Time management is the way we plan and organise how long we spend on specific tasks in order to accomplish our goals. It is not about squeezing as many tasks into our day as possible. It is about effective prioritising and organising our workload, and learning how to eliminate procrastination and time-wasting habits

Why is Time Management Important?

Effective time management is an important skill to master, because failing to plan and schedule your time can have serious consequences. Weakness in this area can lead to missed deadlines, a decline in the quality of your work, more pressure, stress and constant disappointment. It can also have a negative effect on relationships, both in and out of work, and can make you feel constantly overwhelmed. People who are able to manage their time effectively, however, are more productive, less stressed and feel more in control of their day.

Time management training can help you learn how to build simple, effective techniques into your daily routine so you can recognise and solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day. As a result, your day will be less stressful, more productive and much more enjoyable.

How Do Activia's Courses Help You?

Our time management courses are designed to provide you with the necessary skills to analyse your use of time and to give you practical tips on how to improve your own self-management. The training will help you to understand the difference between urgent and important tasks, explain how to delegate and organise your workspace effectively, why settings goals is essential and how to plan them properly.

We teach you how to build these techniques into your daily routine, which will help you to become more productive and work towards your objectives more efficiently.

At Activia's workshops, the focus is on you. All our courses are interactive, giving you the chance to ask questions and discuss personal problems or difficulties on the day. We even help you to build a personal action plan, which will assist you in putting your new skills into practice when you return from your training.

Why Time Management Training ?

Do you:

  • Procrastinate ?
  • Often run late ?
  • Overschedule yourself ?
  • Feel that you are forced to rush jobs ?
  • Lack real control of your workload ?

Time management has been in existence for a long time, but the term creates a false impression because time cannot be managed : we can only manage ourselves and our use of time.
So time management is actually self management, and all time management skills can be learned.
We teach you how to build time management techniques into your daily routine so you can recognize and solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day.
The result ? Your working day will be less stressful, more productive and much more enjoyable.
