Managing Time and Attention

Managing Time and Attention

Do you get lost in emails and meetings and can’t seem to find the time to get YOUR work done?  Discover proven tools and techniques that have helped people around the world manage multiple roles and tasks; organise vast amounts of emails, ideas and information; and expand their output while striving for a better balance between their personal and professional lives.

A practical guide to healthy and sustainable productivity

  • We all have a system (whether we realise it or not) for managing our time, but how effective is yours?
  • How long can you focus on a task without getting distracted?
  • Do you feel like you are reactive to external requests rather than in control of your own work?

We all need to work on multiple parallel projects, spend an increasing amount of time in meetings and manage huge amounts of information, communication and requests. But we seem to have lost the ability to focus and many of us feel frustrated that we’re not getting our most important work done or achieving our goals.

Therefore, we need to develop our own personal, adaptable and reliable system to manage our time and attention. Without shirking from the complexity of the problem, this workshop provides you with practical tools, tips and techniques to wrest control of your schedule and get work done, whether you work from home or at the office.

I think it's important for as many managers as possible to do this course. Great that I got to do this at the start of a new role with MSF so that I can implement some of the strategies from baseline. Should be offered to all new employees.

A peek inside the course

In traditional workshops, even the great ones, participants have forgotten much of what they learned within a few weeks. That’s why we’ve created a stand-alone online version of the workshop that they can access forever post-course. Here is an excerpt from the online version of Managing Time and Attention.
