The Importance of Time Management and Organization in Leadership online

Do you often work right up to the deadline or let deadlines pass? Do you have stacks of papers on your desk and can’t ever find what you’re looking for? Do you constantly feel behind? Time management and organization are two of the most important skills leaders can work on to achieve their goals and excel in their careers. These skills are often seen as crucial to support executives, but the truth is leaders at all levels need to keep things organized and on time to be proactive and to develop a vision for their team or organization. A clearly communicated vision and objectives unify teams and make them more efficient working towards a common goal.

Individuals who are cautious not to commit to too many projects or positions that could impact the quality of their work are often given new opportunities for team leadership. By learning new skills and strategies to create a more organized environment, leaders can build greater team unity and happiness. Not to mention it can help team members find a healthy work-life balance. 

This workshop will focus on tools you can use to help keep you organized and manage your time in a fast-paced environment. Participants will share experiences, tips, and ideas for keeping their personal and professional task lists on track.

Participants will:

  • Learn new tools for managing their time;
  • Develop strategies for being proactive;
  • Discuss ways to become more organized and stay organized;
  • Discuss ways to increase productivity at work; and
  • Learn ways to make teams more efficient.
