Time Management

Have you tried time management techniques that promised to save you time but resulted in wasted time, because they did not agree with your working style? Identifying your individual needs for time management is the first step in creating your own system of optimum efficiency. Time management will be examined as a unique process rather than a "one size fits all" approach. Participants will:

• Discover what time management means through discussion and reflection.
• Set goals to meet personal time management needs.
• Share best practices and tips for time management.

Facilitator: Jeff Stafford is a consultant in the Center for Human Resource Development with the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Prior to joining the University, Jeff was a trainer with ChartHouse Learning – home of The FISH! Philosophy - where he developed the FISH! For College program that is used by colleges across the country.
