In a highly competitive work environment, it is more important than ever to be efficient and effective in your day-to-day activities, both personally and in your team and wider organisation. Having an effective toolset of management techniques to help you make the most of your time and resources is key to maximising your performance and managing your work-life-balance. This masterclass will provide an overview of some of the most useful tools and techniques that you can use and apply on a daily basis – both at home and at work. The overriding core principle of all the tools that we will cover is one of ‘plan-do-review’, and we will apply this principle throughout the course. It will therefore be necessary for you to do some thinking and preparation before the course, focusing on your current work and life challenges, in order to get the maximum benefit from the course. Likewise, after the course you should schedule in some personal time to reflect and review the course and think about how you will apply your learning. Preparatory instructions will be provided before the course and the preparatory activities will take no more than 3 hours of your time. During the course, emphasis will be given to applying the tools in practice, so that you can try out and test each of the tools for yourself and see which of the tools you will find most helpful. This course will be highly interactive with plenary and group discussions and exercises; and time set aside for Questions & Answers and review to help you achieve your learning objectives.
This course will provide you with 12 of the most effective management tools to help improve your personal and team effectiveness. The tools are simple to understand, and a key part of the course is for you to try out the tools and apply them to your own personal situation. This practical application of the tools helps cement your learning and gives you the confidence to apply the tools every day after you have completed the course.
The course methodology follows a consistent pattern of:
- Tool introduction and explanation
- Participants apply and discuss the tool
- Plenary review and questions
