Time Management Training Course Reviews:

"Easily the best PD I have done in a very long time.  Learnt a lot and have started some of the ideas and suggestions."

 

"Content was delivered in a way i now feel confident to do a PD with the rest of my office colleagues and pass the information on. Highly recommended!"


"It was a really great session. Sometimes PD's can seem to drag on and most participants are keen to get away as early as possible. I noticed it was 4:15pm and most people even though the finish time was 4pm were still keen to chat and ask questions. The energy levels were kept high and I found the day moved quickly, but in a way that information was easy to retain.I have already implemented 2 of the practises - sacred time or a meeting with myself and the use of body language to discourage "chatters" with out offending. I have already recommended this to the Principal and would go to another pd with this trainer."


"Breaking allocated tasks in work quadrants...learning about "loading" .  Great session...was very timely:)"


"Easily the best PD I have done in a very long time.  Learnt a lot and have started some of the ideas and suggestions. Didn't want the day to end - which is rather unusual."


"Content was delivered in a way i now feel confident to do a PD with the rest of my office colleges and pass the information on. Highly recommended."

"I thought the training was fantastic! Jo was a great teacher, and really got everyone involved with the learning process. I enjoyed the practical activities, as well as the insight that Jo provided on various aspects of time management. I liked the small class approach where we had the opportunity to discuss ideas and thoughts. I felt that my areas of need were given strong consideration. It was really nice to know that the other class members had similar issues... not just me lacking in certain skills! The location and facilities were good. It was convenient being located near the train station, and there were no distracting elements during the class."

"Time Management" skills, but this course identified some techniques that were interesting accurate for identifying priorities. I came in with an open mind, and I left very satisfied and more confident.

-RM Coating Supplies


 

"The mood and atmosphere of the course was enlightening and uplifting. I believe that a general discussion involving multiple teams allows for additional insights although a separate and shorter session with only your team/department to discuss processes and time management issues specific to your own team might be even more beneficial. The course structure and outline is deployed incredibly well and i would highly recommend the course."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Time Management Skills training I attend 31/08/17. Derek was very knowledgeable and offered a lot of information which I found helpful in both my working and personal environments. I'm a procrastinator, I would make to do lists but prioritising the list was hard. Often jumping from task to task and at the end of the day not having ticked much of the lists. This has now all changed. I gained a number of skills and tips which have been invaluable to career and personal life. I have implemented many of the skills gained. As a result, I am able to better project manage our office relocation, I no longer procrastinate and I am able to work through prioritised to do list while completing task like never before. I completely enjoyed the course content from start to finish. I have attended many training courses and have also delivered them. But this was the best course I have undertaken and I found all of the content valuable. I remained engaged for the whole training and this is due to Derek's delivery of the course content. Thanks again Derek. 10/10 PD Training :)"

Best Metcash course I've EVER done in my 10 years with the company - should have made time to do it many years ago. The trainer was fantastic - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional & light-hearted - the time flew (which it rarely does in training sessions).

A big thank you to Kirsty for the training! I really enjoyed it and have learned some new skills I'm starting to put into practice, already making me feel less stressed and more able to effectively control my time. My desk is even starting to look neater already! Kirsty was also fantastic at handling the group and bringing the focus back to the work at hand in a very polite way when it came to people talking/getting off track - it was actually a non-intentionally provided skill simply because she was practicing it! She was also very professional and friendly with each of the different personalities in the class, giving every one the same attention and chance to be a part of the activities. A great day, a great set of skills and great people. Thank you. Jess.

I was a skeptic going into this course but was pleasantly surprised. Susie our trainer was very engaging and enthusiastic. I believe that having a smaller group worked well for the course as the material became more tailored to my needs/requirements.

It was very good. In fact one of the best comments made by the trainer related to my personality type (being quite visual)and the importance for me in keeping my work environment clear of clutter and distractions. I have put this into practise not only at work but in my car and at home and have noticed improvements in the management of my work.

Honda MPE logo
Undertaking this training session has been giving me the opportunity to advance my skills in preparation and planning areas, how to run the training session or to train more effectively. The information, the resources, the life experiences that the trainer has provided has exceeded my expectations. The topics, the discussions, activities and abet of games and the feedback are very helpful throughout. Because its a small group, which is preferable, I got more chances to ask questions to help me understand fully and supportive. Other two participants are also supportive, which I am comfortable to work with, I also leant a lot from their life experiences. At the end of the session, I am able to step out of my comfort zone, growth in my confidentiality and how to structure/plan a training session, its an absolute relevant and beneficial knowledge that I will use/assist for my workplace in future.

The presenter was excellent. Her attention to each participants' aims of the workshop were attended to very well. She directed the training to specific modules which were helpful to particular participants and skimmed over modules that were not as applicable to us. I appreciated her style of teaching and presenting and would recommend her as a trainer to other people.

Foreword:

Understanding, identifying and defining your long-term goals is the very first step when implementing an effective time management solution. With the broader goal in the background, you can now set a series of medium and short-term goals that will effectively lead you to achieving the cherished long-term goals in your life.

 

By applying the skills taught in the Time Management Workshops, you can optimise your efforts to ensure that you concentrate as much of your time and energy as possible on the high-payoff tasks. This ensures that you achieve the greatest benefit possible with the limited amount of time available to you. Contrary to popular belief, effective time management is not necessarily based on doing more things in less time.

3. Physical Products - visual reminders to keep key concepts alive

Many of the 'aha' moments in courses can come from the increased awareness of ourselves and our colleagues, these come through the REACH Profiles that is integrated into many of our courses.

The insights lead us to better recognise our tendencies and strengths, understand how to be more mindful of adapting to the needs and preferences of our team and our customers.

The insights are put into practice by appreciating the benefits of our diversity and either learning to adapt or implementing a strengths-based management approach.

We have a great range of high quality products that can keep these impactful moments top of mind back in the workplace.

REACH to my Team
Visualizer / Reminder

The REACH Team Visualizer/Reminder can be used in multiple ways in both training and in the office. When displayed in a high traffic area REACH will be kept top of mind. Below are guidelines for use of the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder which is also in downloadable format.

The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder comes in two sizes of A0 841 x 1189 mm and A1 594 x 841 mm and is made from a sturdy 5mm corflute.

REACH to my Team Visualizer / Reminder guidelines for use

  • For this activity the simplest way to plot all participants on the REACH Grid is by generating TEAM Insights Report from the REACH Ecosystem which will give the position of everyone participating.
  • Place the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder on a flat surface, preferably a wall, where it is clearly visible. Ask participants to mark their REACH position on the grid with a sticky dot. Recommend that participants put their initials on the sticky dot so they can easily locate themselves later. Each person’s REACH can revealed one at a time in a group activity. This allows for everyone to identify the dynamic that they will have with each other. Are they in the same quadrant or are the polar opposites? How do they "REACH" each other?
  • When you construct this activity with participants who have not seen their REACH score, they begin to develop a sense of self-awareness and their blind spots as well as of those around them.
  • The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder is a powerful way to keep Team Dynamics and REACH alive. It can be revisited on a regular basis, people can be added, removed or moved by simply adding, removing or moving dots.

Keep it Alive
REACH Cubes

REACH Cubes are designed to build empathy and grow an appreciation for thinking differently. They encourage productive and positive interactions in the workplace, workshop or personal development sessions. They can be used in any creative way to grow REACH and below we have provided two recommended activities for use. The REACH Cubes pack comes with 4 REACH Cubes one representing each REACH Quadrant. Each REACH Cube is 7.5 cm squared and are made from durable EVA Foam.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 1 – Thinking Outside the Square

When people are participating in activities during REACH workshops, training or personal development sessions provide each participant with a REACH Cube and ask them to complete the activity or interaction Thinking and Behaving based on what REACH Cube was provided to them.

Are they the Advisor focused on detail and doing?

or a Coach focused on People and Action?

This brings a whole new level of empathy building and appreciation for the strength of thinking differently.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 2 – Grow Your REACH in your space

After REACH has been introduced using the REACH Training continue to keep REACH alive in the workplace by providing each person with a set of 4 REACH cubes to take back to their work space.

Personal REACH and the REACH of their colleagues can be grown by using these cubes on a regular basis with these great ideas:

The Desk Stack:

Stack your REACH Cubes on your desk and on top of the stack place the cube that is reflecting your current REACH zone. Ensure that you have the side that says “Thanks for dropping by, right now I am in my __________ quadrant” facing outward so those approaching your work space know how you are feeling and acting at that current time. This is designed to help those around you recognise different behaviours/responses they may or may not receive from you based on the situation and REACH zone.

Think Before I Act:

Use your REACH Cubes to be mindful of your interactions with others. Whilst interacting use the cubes to review your behaviours and actions. Take up the cube of the quadrant you currently feel you are in and review these sides: Think before I act: Is this what I need to be right now? Flip the cube over to the side of the profile overview and think about the style in which you are Communicating, Conflict-handling, Delegating etc. Is this what you need to be to REACH the person you are interacting with? If not find the REACH Cube that best suits the situation and maximises your REACH with that person and use the profile overview to help guide your interaction.

Learn to REACH
Labels

Learn to REACH Labels are a great low-cost substitute for the REACH Caps or REACH Cubes or the more physically interactive REACH Floor Mat. They work well in small and large team activities and can be used as a quick way to identify how others act and think through a different quadrant that is not theirs. They can learn to appreciate the different communication, conflict handling, delegating, planning and learning styles of others and through this increase their REACH.

The REACH Labels are made of a high quality fabric sticky labels that are designed to last all day training sessions.

These work well after training when stuck to people’s monitors or workstations.
