Whether it is in or out of work the fact is, we are all guilty of devoting too much time to certain activities. Sometimes it is very difficult to recognise when we are actually doing this bad habit and then other times we know that we really shouldn’t have spent four hours cleaning out draws, sharpening pencils, and colour coding the files. There is a way to stop this though.

You can invest in your time with a time management training course. There are dozens in the UK and there are especially lots of time management training courses on offer in London.

Frosch Learning provides intense time management training for individuals who struggle to manage the responsibilities of their job role. The course even includes a review of you and your employees existing time planning skills prior to the actual training. In doing this there will be a clear indication of exactly where you are going wrong.

There are a multitude of advantages which can be gained from our time management training in London which all demonstrate the importance of efficiently planning your time in the workplace.

Perhaps you have been missing lots of deadlines since you started your new job or role as manager? Whilst you may have other colleagues to blame, it is most likely through fault of your own planning and use of time. Managing your time properly and planning ahead before each day according to your deadlines, will soon reduce the amount of time you spend in the boss’s office.

Advance planning and prioritisation are arguably two of the key components essential to business success and job promotion. By prioritising your workload according to the deadlines of each day, week, and month, you will ensure that you are not only meeting these deadlines, but also meeting them without being in a rush and panic. It isn’t a nice feeling for you or those who have to ensure that the deadline is met, to finish the work a couple of minutes before it is due. If there does happen to be work that hasn’t been completed then at least it will be a not-so-urgent piece of work.

It is also a great skill to be able to recognise the appropriate amount of time that needs allocating to each task. Bad time management also constitutes setting unrealistic deadlines and assigning too few or too many hours/days/weeks to a task.

Ultimately, time management skills will encourage brilliant organisation skills too. So don’t waste anymore time by allowing the repercussions of lousy time-keeping and planning to seep through the rest of your company or team; even poor organisation skills at the highest levels of a company will cause problems for the people in the bottom level roles.
