Do have difficulty getting all your work done in a day?
Do you go home feeling less than fulfilled? Guilty you have to take time away from family?
Do you think about work all night long or keep working once everyone else goes to bed?
When you go to work the next day do you feel like you never left?
How is this course different? What advantages does it offer?
This course is based on 19 years of research and examination of over 1000 Timekeeping Journals. Since the first step in improving the use of your time is finding out where it is being used, participants keep track of their time for a week before they come to this class. This is the only course that asks participants to keep a Timekeeping Journal. (Peter Drucker encouraged leaders to keep track of their time for a month.) The tips, tools, ideas, and strategies are always ahead of what others are teaching which is often over 10 years old. Isn’t it time for new ideas since the workload has tripled?
This course focuses on organizing events, activities, and interruptions (or requests) using strategic decision-making to produce improved results rather than managing time (the outdated method.)
Instead of learning outdated time management techniques, participants learn strategic decision-making skills they can use to organize and manage a “typical, chaotic” day. Participants discover resources they can use to their advantage to improve their results. Instead of trying to manage time participants learn how to manage activities, events, conflicting priorities, interruptions, and urgency so they can get more of what matters most done each day. Participants learn how to have more discipline, the 3 Keys to Improving Productivity, The “Veggie Principle”, and that it’s all about quality not quantity.
The author (expert) not a trainer teaches this course and its application.
Ken Zeigler teaches this course. Participants can bring their actual questions and problems and get tips, ideas, and strategies that work. Ken Zeigler has over 20 years public-speaker and training experience. He brings a lively, engaging style to each program and offers proven solutions and stories from other participants that make the concepts memorable and applicable. There is no theory, just real life examples.
This course uses application-based team activities at the end of each module.
At the end of each Chapter participants are given the opportunity to discuss actual examples from their own work situations in a small group format and develop strategies for improving individual and team performance. Overall, participants are active for more than two-thirds of the day and complete over 10 different small group exercises.
This course is “customized” to your group’s needs.
You can choose from the modules below so the program best fits the needs of your target group. The subjects you choose determine how long the class will take, from two-hours to a full-day. A conference call before your workshop is included so Mr. Zeigler can understand the challenges your group faces and what a “typical” day is like for your group. That way he can explain how to apply the strategies in a way that makes more sense to your group.
