Personal time management skills are essential skills for effective people. People who use these techniques on a regular basis are the highest achievers in all walks of life, from business to sport to public service. Making these skills part your daily routine will enable you to function exceptionally well, even under intense pressure.

As you master these skills you'll find that you take control of your workload, saying goodbye to the often intense stress of work overload. At the heart of time management is an important shift in focus: Concentrate on results, not on being busy. Many people spend their days in a frenzy of activity, but achieve very little, because they're not concentrating their effort on the things that matter the most.

Time management training begins with setting goals. These goals are recorded, prioritized and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. This entire process is supported by a skill set that should include personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management. We'll cover all this and more during this Time Management Online Short Course.

  • Plan effective meetings.

Marketing Basics will provide the basic knowledge to show you how to build and grow your business. Marketing has changed a lot recently and having a new perspective will give you the needed information to assist in making marketing decisions.

Making these skills part your daily routine will enable you to function exceptionally well, even under intense pressure.

As you master these skills you'll find that you take control of your workload, saying goodbye to the often intense stress of work overload. At the heart of time management is an important shift in focus: Concentrate on results, not on being busy. Many people spend their days in a frenzy of activity, but achieve very little, because they're not concentrating their effort on the things that matter the most.

Time management training begins with setting goals. These goals are recorded, prioritized and may be broken down into a project, an action plan, or a simple task list. This entire process is supported by a skill set that should include personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management. We'll cover all this and more during this Time Management Online Short Course.
