The secret to personal performance and organizational success is good time management. If they, the team, and the organization are to reach their aims and business goals, then each individual must make the most of their own time, talent, and those of others around them.

Participants will have the chance to examine the basic concepts of time management, evaluate their existing working methods, and decide on a course of action to improve their effectiveness as an individual, a team, and an organization. The importance of managing one's own time as well as assisting others in managing theirs is emphasized. The personal effectiveness skill sets that are covered in this class include communication, effective business writing, efficient reading, and managing information overload.
