Aims & objectives

Multi-tasking is an increasingly common and important element of people’s responsibilities at every level. Yet many people can find it difficult to work as effectively as they would like when having to juggle and prioritise a wide variety of activities in their working day and week, and this can make their workload seem far heavier than they feel comfortable with.

  • This seminar aims to provide the delegates who attend with some of the tools and techniques on how best to manage a varied and diverse workload in the modern office most effectively .
  • Subjects to be covered include time management techniques, multi-tasking and planning effectively, tips and techniques for improving your productivity through planning, dealing with your time stealers and sharing best practice, team working productively, driver styles, using your authority, saving time at meetings, and personal action planning.
  • People at all levels who wish to improve their productivity, effectiveness and performance would benefit from the tips and approaches that will be presented to them during the course of the day.
