Why Time Management Training ?
Do you:
Procrastinate ?
Often run late ?
Overschedule yourself ?
Feel that you are forced to rush jobs ?

So time management is actually self management, and all time management skills can be learned.
We teach you how to build time management techniques into your daily routine so you can recognize and
solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day.
The result ? Your working day will be less stressful, more productive and much more enjoyable.

Who Should Attend?

administrators, project managers and many more ...
