Time Management and Personal Organisation: What we cover
Managing your time effectively increases productivity, reduces burnout, stress levels and it can improve professional satisfaction. With increasing pressures on clinicians, there is a need to develop these skills.
Introduction to Time Management Theory: The TM Quadrant and the four types of tasks we all must do: urgent and important – not urgent and important – urgent and unimportant – not urgent and unimportant. Which is the most troublesome in the long run?
The 6 principles of good time management:
- Goal setting
- Scheduling time
Goal setting: An exercise in which attendees will learn to set long and short-term goals for all aspects of their lives, personal and professional.
How to get organised, declutter, and get all-important work materials within arm’s reach.
Planning: Throw away all post-it pads, envelopes, and pieces of paper. Instead, use one master list for every week to be updated as required.
Scheduling: Buy an inexpensive wall-planner and plan in your work and leisure activities so that you are never caught out by assessment deadlines, forgetting birthdays or anniversaries.
Avoiding interruption: You can reduce your non-important interruptions by 50% by using a few simple techniques: sit out of the eye-line of passing colleagues, be polite but firm with interrupters, offer to discuss later.
Delegation: Learn when to delegate by applying the 80/20 rule and how to delegate by giving authority complete tasks. Substitute money for time – have your groceries delivered, pay someone to mow your lawn.
