Delivery: 1-day workshop (virtual or in-person)
It is a pretty crazy world out there. People are working longer hours and cramming as much as they can into their day. Unless you have taken on six full-time jobs, you might feel that you are slacking. Trying to do more in each day can cause you to stretch and grow. However, just cramming more tasks into a day can also lead to poor performance when your focus is totally shot with interruptions, or when numerous tasks are started with few completed.
This workshop provides hands-on use of numerous time management skills focused on helping individuals from any background (technical and non-technical) get more out of their time. During the workshop, students learn and use the practices described to plan their work and move beyond simple to-do list approaches to time management.
The workshop covers steps to reduce, avoid and manage interruptions that hamper productivity. Scheduling tactics are described to maximize the use of each person’s day, along with strategies for handling incoming work requests.
Collaborating with remote teams is a common practice and one that can be a major waste of time if not handled properly. Problems with delegation, misunderstanding of assumptions, poor communication, and follow-through, all lead to individuals and teams being unable to get as much work done as they need. The workshop will also address time management among remote teams.
Technical and non-technical staff.
