What you'll learn
  • Comprehensive self and time management for everyday work and in private life
  • The focus funnel: How do you quickly get rid of tasks?
  • Self-management vs. time management
  • Getting Things Done (GTD) by David Allen explained
  • Organise tasks in a structured and complete way
  • Scheduling: How to realistically distribute tasks over the day (or any other time period)?
  • Task Management: How to manage tasks, appointments and projects so that nothing comes to a standstill and no tasks are forgotten?
  • Before diving into the course, keep in mind which tasks you currently and regularly have in your daily life.
  • Know in advance what goals you are pursuing in life, making it easier for you to use time management properly in the context of self-management.

This course series covers a multitude of carefully selected time management methods and shows you the concepts behind the methods step-by-step - plus - what needs to be done such that you can apply these method for yourself. Knowledge of psychological effects, the bio-rhythm, as well as coping with motivational pitfalls (or one's weaker self) complement the method training. At the beginning, the relationship between time management and self-management creates the right mindset, so that the later use of the methods does not result into a challenging task itself and ultimately costs more time than it saves. Important plus: This course is not only about different methods of time management as such, but also about the interleaving of the methods for a more general and all-inclusive self and time management for yourself as well as in a team.

This course series comprises five courses that are available solely as well as within a master course. With the master course, you get the full content within one package.
