Time to Thrive

Increase personal effectiveness & flourish at work and beyond

Thrive

Course summary

Deal confidently with an endless stream of complex tasks and commitments. What we choose to do with the time we have is one of the most important decision each of us will ever make. Conventional approaches to ‘time management’ however, are often ineffective in the long term because time itself remains finite and beyond our control -the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Instead, recent discoveries into productivity under pressure have revealed a wealth of proven techniques which can be applied to make life easier and more effective. Research into successful self-management demonstrates that many of the greatest opportunities to get more done, are associated with personal focus and deliberate attention – about choosing where to invest our energy. This engaging programme underlines the importance of exercising choice, defining priorities, removing distractions and reviewing work processes to ensure you are able to cope effectively with ever increasing workloads.

Coverage includes how to confirm you are working on the right thing, how to take positive action if you are not and how to make any changes stick. You will discover methods to manage your workload and resist information overload, ways to meet the demands placed on you and how to reach informed decisions by concentrating on 'delivering value' rather than 'completing tasks'. Most of all you will learn how to transform the way you invest your time, energy and focus and in doing so, deliver improved performance at work and beyond.
