Time Management

  • 5 CPD Hours Apex Building, Blackthorn Road Sandyford Business District Dublin 18 (map)

Learn how to get more done in your day, avoid the distraction of technology and stay focused and effective!

The benefits of Time Management cannot be overstated, particularly in a world of high demands on your time. Learning how to balance and temper other people’s requirements of your time with your own tasks is a fundamental business skill. Your effective management of your time enables you to be more productive, deliver higher performance and to stay in control.

This one-day course will teach you how to manage and utilise your time better. Throughout this course you will learn how to plan and prioritise, how to set goals and how to use the “quadrant rule” to identify the difference between “urgent” and “important”. You will learn how to get more of the right things done with the 80/20 rule, what and when you should delegate, and how to eliminate “time stealers”.

This course is accredited for 5 structured CPD hours, and includes a full course pack to refer back to at any time.
