Workshop on Time Management : Prioritize to be Effective - Feb 26, 2019

Introduction :

 Time Management is important but often ignored skill. Time is the only precious resource allocated equally to every human being. However 9 out of 10 persons complain about long working hours, not meeting targets, excessive paperwork, fragmented days, neglected family and such others. They say there are not just enough hours in a day.

Purposeful managers are the result of high focus and energy. They organize their own skills and resources to meet the departmental and organizational goals.  Effective managers make a conscious attempt to monitor their daily activities with the corresponding outcome; and are aware of their time wasters. They spend time reflecting on the direction and intention of their actions. To optimize their time: prioritizing, delegating, coaching, motivating skills are used by result oriented managers. They are keenly aware that every act of theirs should add value and move towards achieving what is critical for the department and organization. Staying away from useless diversionary activities is their trademark and that too without affecting smooth working relationship with colleagues and senior/s.  ‘Working Smarter, Not Harder’ is an important area that cannot be ignored.
