Time Management Training - public and in-house training

Derek Stockley provides specific training in time management and personal effectiveness. In-house or on-demand training is explained on this page.

If you want to attend a public course, see: Time Management - Melbourne.

Training can be for small and large business, companies, government and organisations. The emphasis can be on the theory or practical aspects, or a combination of both.

Time management and personal effectiveness

Managing time effectively

Typical programs are half day or one day sessions. Some preparation activity prior to the session may be possible and desirable.

Participants can range from general staff to senior executives in all disciplines.

Topics can include:

  • Time management principles
  • Time management strategies and approaches
  • Time saving techniques
  • Work/life balance
  • Dealing with time wasters
  • Identifying action plans

Each session or program is individually designed to meet the needs of the participants, as needs can vary significantly between individuals.

Specialist programs can also be conducted, for example, effective meeting training, a session or course on how to structure and conduct meetings that are efficient and effective. Topics can include the use of agendas, chairing skills, informal and informal meeting procedure, gaining and controlling participation and related matters.

Please note: the topics and contents listed here are very broad. They give you an indication of the breadth and depth of the time management training course area.

The actual training program delivered will be based on individual and organisation needs determined during the design process. For example, a program could have a high work life balance component if this was a key corporate wide initiative.

There are many options available. A recent time management program included the work-life balance theme. The program included a session on overall life balance priorities as well as a general discussion of work-life balance issues, including reference to Derk’s substantial personal experience (the father of five sons in a dual career family). Derek also facilitated a discussion about various actions the team could take to improve the department’s control of external demands and overall meeting quality.

Other recent programs have included similar themes, but the emphasis has been different in each case. Each individual and group has different needs - Derek’s training designs and style focus each program at the priority issues.

For more information about actual programs conducted, see the time management section of case study topics and examples.
