Managing Management Time

As a man­ag­er, you need to be acces­si­ble and respon­sive to count­less tasks, requests, and inter­ac­tions with col­leagues, stake­hold­ers and man­age­ment. At the same time, you must be inno­v­a­tive and for­ward-think­ing. This course guides par­tic­i­pants through a process of mov­ing away from lim­it­ing time man­age­ment tac­tics and towards pro­duc­tiv­i­ty planning. 

Man­ag­ing Man­age­ment Time will uncov­er why indi­vid­u­als use pro­duc­tiv­i­ty plan­ning and also focus on the ben­e­fits of self-man­age­ment tools. Par­tic­i­pants will learn how to move from time man­age­ment to pro­duc­tiv­i­ty enhance­ment and leave the ses­sion with an action plan of how to incor­po­rate what they have learned from the ses­sion into their work environment.

In this mod­ule, we intro­duce the bat­tle that man­agers face every day between “imposed time” and “dis­cre­tionary time” and teach how to bal­ance per­for­mance in both areas to dri­ve orga­ni­za­tion­al success.
