Description

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.

  • Apply the Eisenhower matrix to identify those tasks you may want to delegate or eliminate entirely as well as to focus on the right tasks immediately.

  • Get to know the Pareto principle to get to evaluate the outcome your tasks properly.

  • Apply the ABC analysis to apply the Pareto principle in different areas of your life.
