WHAT CAUSES TIME MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS?

Everyone is different. Our genetics as well as our upbringing, shapes the person we are. There are all sorts of things that can become barriers to effective time management -and often those barriers are no fault of your own. They may be simply a result of the circumstances you find yourself in, or how you developed through childhood. Circumstances can however always improve if you recognise and understand issues that might be affecting you, and have tools to deal better with those issues.

 Some potential personal barriers to good time management include:

  • Personality traits
  • Conscious and unconscious barriers
  • Self-awareness
  • Intelligence
  • Seeing the big picture
  • Health
  • Motivation
  • Expectations of others
  • The consequences of poor time management
  • Wasting time – procrastination, organisational skills
  • Education
  • Culture

HELPING OTHERS TO MANAGE TIME BETTER

Managers and supervisors can have a great impact upon productivity in a workplace if they can identify and address time management issues with the staff they are managing. This course can be a valuable learning experience for any business owner, manager or supervisor who has not studied toime management before.
