What is Time Management?

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 one task to the next 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, but they are simply using their time more efficiently.

Time management is the way we plan and organise how long we spend on different tasks in order to accomplish our goals. It is not about squeezing as many tasks into our day as possible; more about effective prioritising and organising our workload, and learning how to eliminate procrastination and time-wasting habits. By including it in our own personal development plan, we will not only see our productivity rise, but our stress levels reduce. A training course in time management will show you all kinds of proven techniques that will help you do just that, and enable you to get the most out of your working day.

Why is Good Time Management Important?

Effective time management is an important skill to master, because failing to plan and schedule your time will have serious consequences. Weakness in this area can lead to missed deadlines, a decline in the quality of your work, more pressure, stress and recurring 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 pressured and feel much more in control of their day.

Time management training helps you to 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.
