Time Management


Friday 13th July 2007


9.00 to 5.00 pm (lunch will be provided)


One day

How many places are available?



The aim of this one-day workshop is to help participants to manage their time more effectively. It is aimed at staff who want to make changes to become more efficient in how they spend their time.

There are two key steps in managing your time effectively. The first is to be clear about your priorities, including the balance you wish between work and non-work activities. The second is to spend your time in ways which reflect these priorities.

Participants on the workshop will be expected to do two pieces of preparation. First, they will keep a log of how they spend their time during a typical week. Second, they will gather some feedback from others on how they see their role and their priorities.

Participants will spend time during the workshop assessing how they currently spend their time, clarifying their role, defining their priorities, considering the work-life balance they desire, and making goals and plans to manage their time more effectively.

This workshop will be very participative, and it is important that participants are prepared to reflect honestly on what is important to them and to share their thinking with one or two other participants.
