Mastering Time Management and Organizational Skills
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
To increase the odds of successfully completing any project, a team member must understand how to estimate task work and then perform that work in the most effective manner. Members must also know how to effectively present and receive information and face change in a positive way. All of these skills often require effecting personal change. In this workshop, participants will learn what change is and how people respond to it. They will also learn what information is critical to ?? ...and what methods are most effective in various scenarios. Lastly, they will learn to evaluate and minimize ‘time wasters', more effectively estimate work effort, determine priorities, and delegate more effectively.
This 2-day workshop uses examples and exercises to demonstrate the various aspects of handling change. Examples are worked on together in class, with the instructor demonstrating or explaining the operations, and the participants performing the same operations. Exercises are case study-based and are performed by the participants on their own or in small groups to allow them to practice. The case studies are selected by the team from three possible cases — an awards banquet project, a new software package implementation, and a building restoration — thus allowing participants to select a project to which they can best relate.
