Irene Jurcic, Team Leader

I have found the Time Management techniques and tools incredibly useful in managing both my work and home time. The Motivation & Procrastination and Negotiation sections particularly resonated with me. It is well worth making this investment in your own time.

Steve Lynch, Manager

The progress I’ve experienced in the last few weeks exceeded my expectations. The rewards have been countless – more time to plan and think about my job rather than just filling my day with busyness.

I’ve started consciously choosing tasks that are important to my stakeholders and allocating time to strengthen my relationships. All this by simply deciding not to do certain things – which was a massive challenge for me in the past. I highly recommend the Time Management for Leaders Online Course. Invest in yourself and you will be amazed with the results!
