Although there are many time management suggestions, this one is meant for people who manage, supervise or interact with other people in the workplace.  In other words, you are not working in a vacuum and you don’t have total control of your time.

I’m including information about goal setting and keeping – because of course that’s the objective of managing your time.  And, I’m going to suggest that you delegate as much of the trivia and routine work to others, among other strategies.

Learning Objectives
  • Explore several different time management systems
  • Discover ways to prioritize your time
  • Identify who and how you can delegate to
  • Recognize some of your time-wasters and
  • Identify tools that will help you manage the interruptions.

Great course in laying out the framework for effectively managing your time. Helps you break down and evaluate/think about where you are losing time throughout the day, including limiting checking your email and managing interruptions. Good course to get you thinking about time management.

I really enjoy Ms. Diamond's trainings. Her tips are practical and actionable. I especially like that she suggests multiple ways to achieve an outcome, based on personal preference. I still like pen and paper. Thank you!
