Course FAQs

If you have any questions about our courses, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Our online training is designed to re-create the open course classroom experience as closely as possible.

It is a live training session using Zoom or Teams and the trainer is there throughout.

The training is still hands-on and interactive.  You will be discussing things with the trainer as you would normally.

We encourage everyone to ask questions as you go along.

You can ask questions verbally, raise your hand, as you would in a physical classroom, or send the trainer a chat message.

This makes sure that no-one in the class is left behind.

 

Please come to your course wearing whatever you are most comfortable in.

We do not have a dress code.

Most people come wearing casual clothes.

 

Yes and yes!

We provide everyone who completes one of our courses with a formal certificate.

Our one day time management workshop is CPD-accredited.

 

Yes!

We know that this is something that lots of people struggle with and so our course has a section devoted specifically to this.

The root cause of this is usually that you aren’t clear on your priorities.

This means that

We find that once you are really clear on their priorities, it’s much easier to say ‘No’.

Previously, they weren’t sure how important a task was and so would say ‘Yes’ by default.

Once they’re clear on the cost of saying ‘Yes’ in terms of lost time, they find saying ‘No’ comes much more easily.

Managing your time effectively flows naturally from having real clarity on what your professional priorities are.

We do not run any public courses focused on email.

We cover managing email as part of our one day course.

We do run private one day workshops that are focused on managing email.

To manage time effectively, you need to be clear on what your goals and aims are.

When you are clear on your objectives, deciding which tasks to prioritise  prioritising tasks and delegating tasks becomes much simpler.

Really time management and productivity are synonymous.

If you are making good use of your time (in achieving your objectives) then you are being productive.

What Techniques Do You Teach?

 

The 4 Ds of time management are:

  1. Do
  2. Defer / Delay
  3. Delegate
  4. Delete / Drop

These are the four ‘buckets’ that you should allocate tasks to and a great way to quickly and effectively manage numerous daily tasks.

Meetings are a fact of professional life.

When done well, they are very effective ways of updating a group of people, discussing their opinions and reaching a consensus and communicating a decision.

Sadly, most meetings are poorly run. They are inefficient and inconclusive.

Assuming that the meetings you are being invited to are poorly run, a few good tips would be:

  • Remember that just because you are invited to a meeting, you don’t need to attend. Do not automatically accept meeting requests. Stop and think about whether it will be a good use of time or if there is some other way of participating (sending in an email update) that would be more efficient.
  • Ask for a meeting agenda in advance. This will encourage the person running the course to plan it properly.
  • Before the meeting, explain that you have to leave at a certain time. This means that you can leave without appearing rude, and will discourage time-wasting.

The Eisenhower matrix is a visual way to categorise a list of tasks by importance and urgency.

This analysis forms the basis for improving your time management, as it gives you clarity on what your most impactful and important tasks are.

Once you know that, you can create a plan to allow you to spend more time on them.

For full details, see the article we have written explaining the Eisenhower matrix in full.

The Pareto principle is also known as the 80:20 rule.

In short, it says that a few things are very important, and most things are not important.

The key is to focus on the important few.

Applying the Pareto principle is a quick way to manage to-do lists, decide which tasks to delegate, and improve productivity by focusing on your critical tasks.

Of course, the Pareto principle can be applied more broadly than just to time management.

For full details, see the article that we have written on the Pareto principle here.
