For any worker from a member of the sub staff to the CEO; time is of critical importance. A CEO may have complex tasks to perform and take the kind of crucial decisions that take a difference to the organization’s destiny, and a sweeper or a cleaner may be required to perform tasks that are within his own realm of specialization. While the skillsets may vary greatly; one common factor between the workers at any levels is the amount of time and bandwidth at their disposal.
Every human being is given the same 24 hours in which to accomplish their duties. One skill that is as important as the core skills that each worker comes with is the ability to manage time efficiently. This is an extremely important function which can impede the efficiency and effectiveness of the most talented and intelligent workers. When people are hard-pressed for time, their tasks get extended. As a result, pressure builds up. When pressure builds up, it leads to stress, which could considerably bring down efficiency and productivity. It is necessary for people at all levels to work hard, but is even more important for them to learn the art of working smart.
Managing tasks more efficiently in the given time
All these make it imperative for workers and professionals at all levels to understand how to manage time effectively. The trick lies in enjoying the task, but at the same time, keeping a tab on the time spent for each task or activity. This aspect has to be taken care of if workers have to control time, rather than let it control them.
This essence of time management is going to be the content of a highly educative and entertaining webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry. Chris DeVany, who is the founder and president of Pinnacle Performance Improvement Worldwide, a firm which focuses on management and organization development, will be the speaker at this webinar.

A number of tools for controlling time
This webinar will explain various tools and techniques for time management. Chris will describe how planning can be a very major step towards time management and for clarifying objectives. Delegation is an important method of time management, too. Chris will explain how effective delegation will help in time management. Delegation needs to be done properly, or else it could have the inverse effect. When a task is delegated to the right person, the results can be spectacular, but when done wrongly, can be disastrous, leading to just that the delegator wanted to avoid.
Chris will also take up other important tools and techniques that will go a long way in helping in time management: Setting up group goals and priorities, eliminating the time wasters, handling interruptions and distractions, refusing to take up unreasonable demands, focusing and redirecting efforts towards attending only the most important, most productive and most useful tasks, ensuring that the professional has enough “me time”, and implementing the strategies for improving one’s concentration, which is a sure means to increasing efficiency.
Given the importance and relevance of this topic, professionals in all major positions in which time is absolutely important, such as CEO’s, Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents, Executive Directors, Managing Directors, Regional Vice Presidents, Area Supervisors and Managers, will find this session highly useful and valuable.
Chris will cover the following areas at this webinar:
- Self-Evaluation: How Do You Manage Your Time
- Concentration and Focus
- Planning to Succeed
- Decision Making and Prioritizing
