In business, everyone is a manager. Before people rise to manage projects, teams, and companies, they manage themselves and those most successful at self management are those who rise quickest to management positions. Self-management is the act of managing the resources you have under your personal control: your personality, time, image and networks.
According to the 2009 CIPD Learning and Development Survey, 81% of respondents identified the development of management and leadership skills as most important for meeting business objectives in the next 2 years. However, over half (51%) of respondents feel that new joiners are deficient in skills in this area.
This intensive 4-hour, self-management “bootcamp” gives candidates the tools they need to stay on top of things from the very beginning of their careers with the latest time and stress management techniques. Using outcomes based learning and practical exercises, candidates will also learn how to maximise their personal “brand” and network of contacts in the business environment.
Deliverables: By the end of the 4 hours delegates will be able to:
- Identify their unique talents and values
- Create a powerful first impression and presence
- Leverage their personal network
- Create and use a "3 second pitch"
- Stay on top of workload
- Motivate yourself to get things done
- Deal with stress
- Maintain a healthy work-life balance
Who should attend
Anyone wishing to keep “on top” of everything and to distinguish themselves from their peers when entering the workplace.
