During this 1-day course you will learn to get the upper hand on the constant demands by applying specific techniques to prioritize projects and tasks, and use an analytical approach to manage your time. We will discuss the roots of time management issues: setting priorities, being proactive, communication and behaviour patterns, and staying focused.
