Chapter 1 - Introduction

Without effective time management skills, new and constantly changing corporate objectives can be overwhelming, leaving us feeling out of control. Decision-making often resides at levels outside our own sphere of influence. Management expects us to handle more with fewer resources. Putting out fires and responding to multiple interruptions and changing priorities, becomes the bulk of our workday. Consequently, at the end of the week, month and year, we have not met our own objectives and feel disenchanted about the misuse of our time.
 
This online Time Management Skills course focuses on helping delegates to proactively manage time for themselves first, which ultimately leads to serving corporate objectives more effectively.
