Nine Strategies of Effective Time Management
Let Your Priorities Determine Your Tasks, Not the Other Way Around
If you want to go to the movies, you drive to the theater and park. You don’t drive somewhere else, park, and then try to find the movie theater. If you do, you may never get there. How can you keep the main thing the main thing? Do you often take work home with you in the evenings and on weekends because you can’t finish it at the office? Do you often feel like you’re having trouble making time for what’s most important to you because you spend all of your time reacting to what’s urgent?
CSL will address all of these questions in this cutting-edge workshop on the latest developments in time management. Yogi Berra once said, “If you keep doin’ what you been doin’, you’ll keep gettin’ what you been gettin’.” You will not only leave this workshop with new time management strategies to move forward with – you will also unlearn and purge old strategies that have been cluttering up your schedule and moving you in the wrong direction.
This leadership workshop will have a tremendous positive impact on:
- The capacity of your organization to raise funds for its programs
- The passion, commitment and effectiveness of your staff
- The relevance and usefulness of your board
Some specific results you can expect to see are:
- Focused, directed staff guided by a disciplined organizational culture where your organization’s most important priorities determine the everyday tasks, not the other way around
- Staff who are less stressed and are leading more balanced lives without sacrificing fundraising and program delivery goals
- An enhanced organizational culture of self-management, self-initiative and innovation
- Reduced supervision of staff, who have become more self-managing
- Staff who work more efficiently and deliver more results in less time
- More committed, loyal staff who enjoy their work more because they feel they can more efficiently achieve their goals
- Less ‘relaxing on the job’ and more self-confidence among staff as they feel more committed and capable of achieving their goals
