"The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it is the same problem you had last year."
- John Foster Dulles

Time management means being able to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity, even when pressures are high and time seems tight. When you fail to manage your time, there is a feeling of loss of control which causes stress. If you want to break this cycle, the answer lies in great time management skills and the behaviours to get there. Because being busy isn't the same as being effective.

Learning Objectives
Specific learning objectives include:
- Learn the categories of time management and recognize where you need to improve.
- Better organize yourself and understand the behaviours you can change.
- Understand the importance of, and the most useful techniques for, setting and achieving goals.
- Identify the right things to be doing and develop plans for doing them.
- Learn what to delegate and how to delegate well.
- Take control of things that can derail your workplace productivity and learn how to recover from a crisis and get back on track.

Target Student
Time management is a crucial skill needed by every employee or leader in your organization. This is the course to help you become better organized, work at peak efficiency and feel more in control. Get a healthier grip on your workflow, learn how to delegate some of your work to other people, and take the stress out of your time management.

Course Outline
This is an interactive course. Participants will be expected to bring their time management concerns and challenges to work and develop.

Section 1: Your Time Management Overview 
The participants will take a self-awareness quiz to see where in the five sub-categories of time management they need to improve, with strategies available for improvement in all areas.

Section 2: Setting Goals
During this session, participants will learn how to set SMART goals to manage their time better. You will learn the difference between reactive and proactive tasks and apply this knowledge to prioritization work and to an Urgent/Important Matrix.

Section 3: Prioritizing
This is a crucial step in the organization formula. It is not enough to have a "to do" list - it must be ranked and put into a prioritization formula.

Section 4: Planning Tips and Tricks 
This session will explore how well you plan now and will introduce you to different planning tools and their uses. It also covers understanding the behaviours that can be challenged to create change.

Section 5: Communication Skills
Identify how communication skills play in collaboration with others and in clarifying assumptions.

Section 6: Delegation
You will learn tips for successful delegation, which will in turn save you time. You have a team - use them.

Section 7: Getting Back On Track
This session will discuss tips and strategies for how to recover from an interruption and return quickly to what you were doing, instead of letting it derail your entire day.

Section 8: Balance
That elusive work-life balance that is always talked about - do you have it? How do you get it? What are the rewards for lessening your work stress?

Workshop Wrap-Up
At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out a personal action plan.

I think I underestimated my own knowledge of the program. This is not necessarily at the fault of the course or training provider.
I found the instructor very informative and she addressed all of my questions and concerns.

Too much information in one day - instructor had to race through material, skipping some of it entirely. Start delayed by 20 minutes due to course material not having been properly loaded on computers. These issues continued throughout class, ie some of my important menu tabs were in french, others in english. I had requested an English class. Another student had Excel 2007 instead of Excel 2010, when the rest of us and the instructor were working with 2010. I would have liked to continue to 4:00, but the instructor made it clear that her preference was to leave at 3:30, so no one said anything. The windows had to be opened because the room was too warm, but the people next to the windows were wearing their coats because they were too cold.
