Managing Your Time and Commitments 

One of the most consistent concerns expressed by leaders we work with around the world is: We don’t have enough time! The stress of having too much to do and not enough time to do it is overwhelming. In this interactive session, Andy Kaufman, PMP shares practical lessons to help you get a better handle on what it takes to more successfully manage your time and commitments. Topics include understanding the importance of taking care of yourself (including getting more sleep and exercise), factors that drive procrastination (with approaches to overcome them and help you manage your time and projects), ways to say No without saying No, and actions you can take to manage interruptions. Andy shares specific strategies to help you get more control over your time—allowing you to focus on the most important priorities and resulting in fewer things falling through the cracks. Leave with a helpful list of books and other resources to continue your learning after the session.
