Course Description
The bottom line in many organizations is productivity. If you find yourself overwhelmed, working too many hours, or running behind, you may have room to improve your approach to time management. This course will give you an overview of the top issues related to managing your time effectively at work. You will learn ways to streamline your daily work along with skills that can help you to get more work done in less time.

Before diving into the specifics of time management, you should know that this topic is part of a larger set of skills often referred to as “soft skills” in the world of business. “Hard skills” are the technical expertise you need to get the job done. For example, an engineer needs to understand how to build and understand physical systems - this is an example of a hard skill.

In general, soft skills are interpersonal competencies which play a very important role in professional success; they help you to do your very best while working in an environment with many individuals who come from diverse backgrounds and take part in very different job tasks.

Because of the need to manage different opinions and interpersonal styles, the difference between a good employee and a great one often boils down to a person’s competence with soft skills.

  • Define time management and explain the importance of time management.
  • List common obstacles to effective time management.
  • Use concrete techniques such as planning, prioritization, and goal-setting to manage a work load more efficiently by overcoming procrastination and appropriately delegating work to others.
