Are you stressed by having too much to do and not enough time to do it? Would you like to be more effective in your work, reduce the stress of over-commitment, and achieve greater balance in your work and your personal life?

As consultants, we help our clients survive, thrive and lead more successful lives … but often we face challenges in managing our own time successfully. In this presentation you will learn how to identify and understand your specific time management challenges, how to focus your time and attention on your highest priority activities while still handling your lower priority tasks appropriately, and how taking five key steps can reduce the time-wasters in your life and deal with your most common time management problems.
