Time Management Course FAQs

If you have any questions about our time management training courses, please 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 as new time management concepts are introduced.

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

We do not have a dress code for our in person courses.

Most people come wearing casual clothes.


Yes and yes!

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

Our one day time management workshop is CPD-accredited.


Yes, it will help in two ways.

Firstly, we know that this is something that lots of people struggle with.

Because this is a time management issue that lots of people have, our course has a section devoted to this problem.

Secondly, many people find that once they’re 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.

Yes. Time management is a learned skill and a key part of everyone’s personal development. No-one is born knowing how to manage their time.

There are a number of tried and tested time management techniques, like the Eisenhower matrix and the Pomodoro technique, which anyone can use to improve their productivity.

They offer a way to improve on using a traditional to do list which can leave you feeling overwhelmed.

Time Management Techniques

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 whoever is running the meeting for an agenda in advance. This will encourage them to think about the purpose of the meeting in advance.
  • 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.

Yes, this is foundational to our approach to time management.

We feel that this is an incredibly useful tool and central to getting really clear on where you should be spending your time.

This analysis forms the basis for improving your time management skills.

With clarity on your most impactful, important tasks you can create a plan to allow you to spend more time on them.

Many people find this framework very useful more broadly across their careers.

It can also be used for project management and managing time effectively for a team.

Time is your most precious resource.

Learning effective time management skills will improve your goal setting, improve your productivity and improve your career opportunities.

You will become someone who is known for meeting deadlines and completing tasks in a timely manner.

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 where you should delegate tasks and to improve productivity by focusing on your most important tasks.

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