‘Everything seems to be urgent’
These are some of the time management issues I hear on my courses. You want to be able to cope with the demands and pressures of your jobs, achieve greater productivity and strike a better work / life balance.
I relish the challenge of working with my delegates to plan, prioritise and manage their workloads more effectively, and drawing on many years’ experience in a number of high pressure roles will aim to put you at ease and work individually with you to help transfer your new skills to the workplace.
