Time-management

Is there too much you need to do in a day? 

Monday morning. Your weekly department meeting starts in 20 minutes. You have just got off the phone speaking to an important client for half an hour. In front of you lie two pages filled with notes from this conversation. One of your employees enters, with a list of all the people you urgently need to call before noon. And at the last minute you can see an email from your manager flash on to your screen, asking you to give him your opinion on one of the minutes from last Friday’s meeting, before the end of the day. 

Are you sufficiently equipped and organised to deal efficiently with the reality of this kind of situation? Do you know what will be your next physical action? 

In our Time Management course we discuss all the techniques of how to deal with the above, and similar, situations.
