Effective Time and Self-management

A two-day course for managers who have responsibility for managing their own personal time and day-to-day schedule.

(This course is accredited by Jasperf Alliance London, Ltd. As a result for a small extra fee you can obtain your certificate from JAL instead of Cross Cultutal Management.)

This course addresses the challenges that managing a personal work schedule brings to us, and provides effective time-

management solutions that enable delegates to make lasting changes to their established work practices.


At the end of the course, delegates will be able to understand how they use their personal time, and how time affects performance-specifically; typical time-wasting activities; using time more productively; recognizing the difference between importance and urgency; making best use of peak energy times; reducing stress induced by time constraints; and making best use of time management techniques.

Course Content:

Attitude to Time Management

Given that the majority of time management problems are emotional, it is generally true that we all find time to do the things we really want to do – here, we examine individual underlying attitudes to managing time, and how we can be more objective in our approach to managing time in the workplace

Exercise: Attitudes to Time

A simple individual questionnaire to assess how we regard time and where we are most likely to have time management problems

Setting goals and objectives

Key performance areas define the purpose and rationale of your work – in this session we look at key performance indicators (KPIs), how they relate to our goals and objectives and how we set, write, record and monitor both long-term and short-term goals and


Prioritizing everyday work

Good time management starts with understanding the relationship between work and time, and knowing how to organize the working day – here we look at the two dimensions of prioritization, at how we can measure the proper value of time, and how we can attach a proper time-value to the work we do

The Time Planning Matrix

Management tools are most useful when they are simple to understand and simple to use – in this session we learn how to use a plainfour-square model to identify four areas of activity that determine how effectively we use our time

Exercise: Time Evaluation

A workplace exercise to identify, highlight and evaluate where you use your time during the course of the working week

Exercise: Time Management Types

A psychometric assessment that identifies Four Primary Personality Types, and how each type is most likely to regard time, use time and be affected by time constraints

Coping with Stress

There are many reasons for stress in the workplace, and not least of all the pressures that time constraints bring to us – in this session we learn the meaning of stressors and drivers, how these determine our behaviour, and how they can affect our ability to manage time effectively

Using Planners and Schedulers

All good time managers use some form of planner or scheduler – here we look at the range of workplace tools that can help us organize better the time that we have as a busy managers

Dealing with interruptions

Interruptions are a natural part of every manager’s day but they often stop us from being effective with our time – in this session we examine the primary causes and origins of interruptions and provide useful tips on how these can be recognized and managed

Exercise: The Time-Life Balance

A personal assessment that identifies how we spend our time during the course of a week in relation to a proper time-life balance

Proactive and reactive use of time

Whether we are proactive or reactive with time determines the overall effectiveness of our attitude to time and the way we use time – this final session brings together all of the elements of the course to present us with a choice as to how we can manage our time and become more objective in our use of time
