Managing Multiple Priorities

This interactive workshop enables employees and managers to better manage competing priorities, dynamic schedules, and achieving a greater balance in their personal and professional lives.

Methodology:

Participants engage in a self-assessment tool to identify and eliminate time “robbers” in both individual and smaller groups.  Throughout the workshop, a combination of facilitated discussion and hands-on experiential techniques are used to help participants assess their needs and assemble a personalized action plan.

Format:

Clients are able to choose between half day and full day workshops depending on the depth and specialization of their learning goals.  These workshops can be customized to accommodate a specific client’s needs and goals.

Topics and issues covered in either the half or full day workshops can include but are not limited to:

  • Effectively managing multiple priorities without diminishing quality
  • Understanding the “Big Picture”
  • Day to day prioritizing and time management
  • Identifying and assessing internal responsibilities
  • Highlighting group goals and what is important to others
  • Building lost time back into one’s work life balance
  • Committing to action
  • Communicating responsibilities effectively

 
A one-hour lunchtime seminar is also available to provide a broad overview on time management and managing multiple priorities.  Participants will become aware of the importance of these issues in this educational seminar.
