Time Management Essentials

This half-day workshop is designed to give you a simple framework and tools to evaluate what needs to happen so you can deal constructively with time constraints and achieve better work-life balance.

The term “time management”, can create a false impression because time cannot be managed: we can only manage ourselves, prioritise our task and then allocate our time. So time management is actually self-management, and all time management skills can be learned.


  • Recognise your work style and time stealers
  • Communicate and managing expectations
  • Apply Covey's “Seven habits of highly effective people”
  • Set goals and prioritise
  • Apply the Pareto principle
  • Utilise tools, tips and strategies to save time
  • Minimise stress.


  • Identifying your working styles and time wasters
  • To be proactive in setting goals and managing time
  • Communicating boundaries, saying No, and negotiating realistic win-win outcomes
  • Recognising how to set priorities and manage an environment where urgent tasks do not dominate the day
  • Developing practical strategies to work SMART, manage time, tasks and wellbeing.


  • An understanding of time wasters and how to apply successful strategies and tools to balance the competing demands of the workplace.


  • Anyone who wishes to take back control of his/her time in the workplace
  • Perpetual Procrastinators
