Effectiveness Beyond Time

In the 4th century AD St. Augustine asked “What is time then…” In the 18th century Benjamin Franklin replied “Time is money”. And although there were many answers given regarding St. Augustine’s question and Benjamin Franklin’s answer, the equation Time is money seems best suited to the way we see time today. Time is a resource, and a unique one at that, as it cannot be replenished.

How do you organize your work? How do you organize your agenda? Do you stick to it or do you run after it? Do you, from time to time, have the feeling that the work has caught up with you and that you are being guided by the red taillights of priorities and obligations?  You are not the only one! Surprisingly enough, Time Management issues are most frequently found in those jobs that offer a high degree of freedom – jobs with a lot of internal and external contacts, involving very few routine activities. In this ‘lean and mean’ time the consequences very often show up clearly and can quite easily take on frustrating forms. This training will attempt to alleviate some of the challenges caused by the need to manage time better. It will tackle Time Management on three different levels: the personal, managerial and organizational, creating a complete picture of what Time Management means in the modern organization.
