Time and Task Management Effectiveness: Working Smarter Every Day


One of the essential qualities of a manager is the art of managing time. People in certain positions are required to carry out more tasks and take more decisions than others. Unless the talent of managing time effectively is imbibed, a manager could well end up falling short of completion of tasks. This could affect the work of the organization in a big way.

The ways by which to manage time effectively can be learnt. A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the human resources areas, will be organizing a webinar on November 22, at which the ways of managing time will be taught.

The expert at this webinar is Chris DeVany, Founder and president of Pinnacle Performance Improvement Worldwide. Please visit TrainHR to enroll for this session and gain understanding of how to be effective at time management.


The essence of this webinar is the learning it offers of how to control time and make it a manageable resource. The expert will show how to optimize time so that no tasks get carried over to the next day, which generate a long pipeline of to-do items that will heap pressure on the manager.

A dreaded situation for any manager to be in is to come into office and see a long list of mails or tasks that need attending within a limited time. This inevitably results in hurrying up and focusing more on clearing the items rather than trying to be good at these. Work becomes less enjoyable when the mind is always thinking of what to do next. This prevents the manager from giving her best to the work on hand, diluting the effort and the concentration needed to make any work effective.

Participants of this webinar will learn how to:

  • Achieve better results through more effective planning and clarifying objectives
  • Delegate effectively and free themselves for bigger tasks
  • Set group goals and priorities
  • Eliminate the time wasters
  • Handle interruptions and distractions
  • Say no to unreasonable demands
  • Redirect their efforts to the most important and valid tasks
  • Make sure there is time in the day for themselves
  • Learn strategies to improve concentration and increase their efficiency.

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
  • Getting Organized
  • Establishing Boundaries to Create Balance
  • Setting SMART Goals.

Personnel in designations in which time management is crucial, such as CEO’s, Senior Vice Presidents, Vice Presidents, Executive Directors, Managing Directors, Regional Vice Presidents, Area Supervisors, and Managers will derive immense benefit from this webinar.
