Dealing with time-consuming tasks

Topic: Professional Efficiency

These days, a company’s day-to-day business is often a matter of urgency. If you were to respond to every request, even at optimal performance and working round the clock, you will not be able to complete everything.

You may feel you are no longer on top of your work schedule and are enslaved to it. You are faced with constraints and multiple requests, and subjected to a whirlwind of urgent tasks and contradictions.

If you relate to the above, you will learn how to deal with these tasks and regain control in this 2-part module.

Part A Learning objectives:

Role-playing as a coach in this module, you will help the main character to learn lessons from stipulated situations. This approach allows you to learn to manage other people’s interruptions:

  • Start to identify time-consuming tasks and take a step back to group them into four categories.
  • How to deal with time-consuming tasks generated by other people.

Part B Learning objectives:

Discover practical methods to help you go beyond traditional time management methods and adopt effective strategies and behaviors that are aligned with your environment and personal needs:

  • How to deal with time-consuming tasks generated by your organization.
  • How to deal with personal time-consuming tasks in a good-natured way.

What our clients say about us – Berendsen

We had already put in place LEAD Development Centres for our senior leader group, and it was very important to introduce Centres that would work for our large population of Plant Managers across Europe. Cegos have been excellent partners in helping us get the design right, and then in the delivery of lively, action learning based programmes. I have greatly enjoyed seeing our managers have ‘light bulb’ moments!
