Do you:

Procrastinate ?
Often run late ?
Overschedule yourself ?
Feel that you are forced to rush jobs ?
Lack real control of your workload ?

Time management has been in existence for a long time, but the term creates a false impression because time cannot be managed : we can only manage ourselves and our use of time.
So time management is actually self management, and all time management skills can be learned.
We teach you how to build time management techniques into your daily routine so you can recognize and solve personal time management problems, staying in control of your working day.
The result ? Your working day will be less stressful, more productive and much more enjoyable.
