We can’t manage time – simple!...60 seconds in a minute, 1440 minutes in a day, 7 days in a week – no more, no less. What we can do, is manage ourselves. This program illustrates how to better utilise our greatest resource: TIME...one that’s free of charge, but one that you simply cannot make or buy more of...a 'priceless treasure'! Yet sometimes we treat it like a snowflake, watching it melt away whilst deciding what to do with it.
This program explores how to break old habits and start effective new ones. It assists participants to gain greater control and manage their time more effectively. Experience tools and techniques necessary to maximise the return from the effort you are putting in to your work, how to deal with procrastination, how to delegate, and the importance of work/life balance....Take control of your time, and your life!
