Time Management Workshop

The PD Training Time Management Training Course will help you become more productive and more efficient in your role, and includes training in effective time management strategies such as goal setting, task prioritisation and delegation, applying Pareto's 80/20 rule, managing emails, overcoming the habit of procrastination.  The course develops your time management skills including setting S.M.A.R.T. goals, handling high pressure situations, and managing meetings.

We want you to get the most out of your time spent in class, therefore, we encourage you to tell the trainer which lessons you would like to get trained in extensively before attending the course — you'll receive an invitation to do this once you've enrolled. The trainer will then tailor the training to your needs and cover those topics in more detail.

You will learn about your own personality type as well as other personality types and how to engage others in an entirely new way that provides a path to better communication and improved time management skills.

PD Training can provide a complete professional development program for your organisation which includes personality profiling and automated training requires analysis, so contact us today to learn more!

For individuals, attend a public class in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, or Adelaide.

Time Management Workshop Reviews:

Departmentof Education and Training South East Region

"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" without offending. I have already recommended this to the Principal and would go to another pd with this trainer."

"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."

"Deidre really tailored this presentation to our specific needs. Personalising the content made it much more relevant and easier to absorb. Excellent."

"I loved and found extremely interesting the links between time management and behaviour styles. The trainer was very knowledgeable in this area."

"Deidre kept the class interested and engaged throughout the whole day of PD. The best presentation I've been to."

"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."

"I loved this: "Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it is spent." Louise gave us reference to books and talks appropriate to this training."

Austral Asia Line Pte Ltd

"I was very happy with the course. I came in not really knowing what to expect, as I was fairly confident with my "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. Everything covered in the course made sense, and gave me validation, that what I have been doing is on the right track, and what I need to do more of is "Discipline myself" in keeping to the time-frame of my working schedule."

-Austral Asia Line Pte Ltd


"I found the Time Management Course to be beneficial in providing me with strategies to better manage my time at work by filtering various tasks and challenges into an order of 'importance,' which I believe will boost my output. I'm looking forward to putting the details obtained from this course into action now at work."


Glen Eira City Council

"We had a condensed course, due to time restrictions (90 minutes) so I am fully aware that we had to speed though the content. Having said that the facilitator was one of the most professional, well prepared and easy to understand presenters I have experienced thorough Glen Eira Council training. Great job."

"Great session, although it was short it was quite informative and provided many tips on identifying priorities, making lists and ways in which to deal/plan for interruptions. So much more that could be covered but given the time it was great. Highly recommend it to those who are feeling lost in their work environment. Michaela mad great use of the flip chart to make points and interact with the group."

Bond University

"I really benefited from the prioritising and goal setting sections of the training. These will definitely improve my day and therefore my life!"

"The course was useful in that it reinforced things I already knew, and threw up a few new ideas on how to better manage my time. Troy's energy and enthusiasm was great too on a potentially boring topic."

-Bond University

Departmentof Education and Training South East Region

"I found that the course was very informative particular to my position as Business Manager. The course gave me tools that I can use with clear instructions so that I have no problem implementing them. It gave me information that will improve my role as a Business Manager and quality of life work balance."

"Sanet had some real 'pearlers' which I wrote down. So much of what she said was like 'light-bulb' moments. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone."

-Department of Education and Training - South East Region

People Assets

"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."

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
