Time Management class specially priced for CSCC employees clockHave you ever been asked to do more with less? Ever felt like you reach the end of the day… knowing that you have been incredibly busy all day and not moved one step closer to your goals? Ever felt like you will never catch up?

“Time Mastery! Managing Multiple Projects, Priorities and Deadlines” just may be the stress reliever that you are looking for! The class is designed to help you develop the necessary skills to set priorities, meet the daily challenges of managing professional and personal responsibilities, and increase overall efficiency.

On Wednesday, December 30, from 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., we will explore your current time management effectiveness in 12 categories including planning, scheduling, interruptions and procrastination.

A fun, fast, and interactive training session will then be presented to help participants improve their time management skills in 4 of these key categories. A workbook with practical tips and a detailed framework for a personal development plan will also be provided.

The core of our seminar is a time-management instrument called the Time Mastery Profile®. The profile is sent via email and an on-line assessment is completed prior to the class. This allows The Center for Workforce Development to customize the seminar, tailoring the content to the specific needs of the people in class and provides a complete report to each individual’s specific time management strengths and weaknesses.

Upon completion of the program, each participant will leave with their learner participant guide (workbook) and assessment results to refer to as needed.

This class is specially priced for Columbus State employees at $49. To register click: or call Tracy at ext.5489 to receive your discount.
