There will always be too much to do within the time available! We cannot manage time, but we can manage ourselves and our workload within the time we do have. The trick is to get better at your time management!

Most managers would like to organise themselves more effectively whilst helping their team to develop and achieve more. This, in turn, can help to reduce stress levels and enhance the feeling of wellbeing.

Many managers attempt to ‘project manage’ their way through change, deal with uncertainty when it happens or try and ignore it altogether. Such managers then seem surprised by the backlash and resistance they get from their staff! Most managers would like change to be easier and less time consuming. Most managers would like to plan effectively even in times of uncertainty.

This workshop will give you a range of practical and thought-provoking tools, tips and techniques to help you lead and facilitate changes more effectively
