Time Management & Managing Multiple Priorities

view managing multiple priorities training

Practical solutions for improving personal effectiveness and how to manage your time

Working in the charity, public or not-for-profit sector can feel overwhelming: everything is a priority and results have a wide-reaching impact. This day goes further than just a personal time management training course. It provides insights into the challenges of managing time while working with others in charities and non-profits – including managing a heavy workload, reducing interruptions and dealing with dangerous ‘time thieves’.

The course will leave you feeling re-energised and with a renewed sense of focus, with the tools you need to deal with the most demanding workload, and to achieve your long, medium and short-term goals with confidence.

This online learning session is split into four bitesize sessions delivered across 2 weeks. 
You can progress through the programme to the point that suits you best, attending just the first session or all the way through to the fourth session. The more sessions you book, the lower the cost of each session – think of this as a reward for committing to your learning journey. Note that you cannot attend the later sessions if you have not attended all the ones before (e.g. you cannot attend session 4 without attending 1, 2 & 3). Book the whole course for £180+VAT (£216) or try the first session for just £60 and see what you think.

About the sessions:
Session 1 (20th August, 2-4pm)
  • diagnose your role purpose and set meaningful goals
Session 2 (21st August 2-4pm)
  • understand how to balance urgent and important work, and use =mc’s daily action sheets to stay focussed
Session 3 (26th August 2-4pm)
  • manage the people and processes that steal your time
  • learn how to say no, push back and handle demands effectively and without causing offence
Session 4 (27th August 2-4pm)
  • deal with procrastination issues and boost your personal energy to maintain motivation
Investment:
Session 1 £60 +VAT
Session 1 & 2 £110 +VAT (£55 per module)
Session 1 & 2 & 3 £150 +VAT (£50 per module)
Session 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 £180 +VAT (£45 per module)
Sorry the date doesn't work for you this time.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options. These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in one full day, two half-day sessions or four bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • developing internal processes – by bringing your team together, you can adapt =mc approaches to develop your internal language and time management approach. Our trainers will hold facilitated discussions to gain group commitments and agreements
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.
