In the 21st Century we are expected to produce more with less. Better services, quicker response times, more products to market, increased sales, and better value for money.
Managers, in particular, are expected not just to plan and prioritise their own work but to be responsible for what their team do. And team members need to take into account their colleagues' priorities as well as their own.
Whether you are a manager or a team leader, we are all under pressure to produce quality work, to time. Yet how often do you find yourself swamped by a seemingly unrealistic workload or struggling to meet an important deadline?

Proper and effective use and management of time is vital to the success of organisations mad the well being of the individuals.

The Basics of Time Management
Time is a unique resource. Day to day, everyone has the same amount. It cannot be accumulated. You can't turn it on or off. It can't be replaced. It has to be spent at the rate of sixty seconds every minute.
NEW: Why Time Management doesn't work
Planning is a complex process. Some people are good at it, other aren't. Planning makes two contributions which bring order to your life.

Second, it identifies the resources required to get you there. Whether your plans are short or long term,
The DONE! Seminar will show you how to get the most benefits from this essential activity.
NEW: How to Manage your Workflow

Let The DONE! Seminar show you ways to recognise and manage your most
productivity hurdles and time wasters.
Taming e-mail and The Telephone
The double edged swords of the 'phone and e-mail have made everyone accessible and in constant demand. We have had the phone for nearly 100 years but it now comes with voice mail,
SMS, mobile and wireless to allow us to make and received dozens of calls everyday of our working lives.
And contrary to all predictions, electronic mail (email) hasn't seen the demise of the amount of paper mail we receive. In fact we have seen a
MASSIVE increase in the amount of mail we receive.
The DONE! Seminar gives you pointers on how to get through the paperwork, make use of good e-communications and how to tame the telephone trap.
