Time Management


I'm going to be delivering some Time management training and the materials I have at the moment are a little dull. Does anyone have funa and effective materials that I could use?

    I have a useful fun handout on clearing your desk. If you are covering personal organisation as part of time management you are very welcome to it. Its on my site at I expect you would also be able to find lots of other ideas/materials there too

    Good luck

  3. Simulating the real thing
    Hi Julie,
    We have a CD rom which puts the person in the realistic role and they are given scenarios to deal with. They have to chose the best approach to manage their time. They are assessed through out the simulation and given a score at the end with some feedback that they can print off. They can also print off their whole simulation, scenarios and decisions and this can be used for coaching or one to one feedback. Let me know if you are interested and I can send you a demo CD.

  4. livening up time management training
    Hi Julie,

    In our Using T.I.M.E workshops one fun exercise is having participants list things they can do while waiting. In dentists’ offices, for planes, trains, late colleagues, etc. I call this “tinkering in time pieces,” When one has such a list it is easy to get something done, and be less frustrated with the wait. We also have them share the innovative items with others in the workshop, and all add to their lists.

    good luck,

  5. Some people just can’t manage time!
    As a Myers Briggs Type Indicator user, I have put an MBTI slant onto Time Management training and that often makes it more interesting for the participants. On a more traditional note, brainstorming time wasters can provide some amusing examples. Using the same list for syndicate groups to provide solutions then becomes very useful.

  6. Time Management Training Activity
    For an activity to demonstrate how much your audience has “on their plate”, provide each participant a paper plate and a stack of sticky notes. Pick a time period (in the morning before they get to work, the first 2-3 hours of their workday, in the evening when they get home) and have them write each task they perform within that time frame (one task per sticky note) and place all sticky notes on their paper plate. At the end of the activity, each participant will have an excellent visual of how important your time management discussion will be to them.
