Guide to Task Management Training
How to organize and clean your workspace
Imagine this scenario: You are supposed to send a printed document to you boss in 30 minutes. You were unable to finish the document in time because of complications. You ended up scribbling the document on a messy table in your haste. You return to your desk after 4 minutes and frantically walk to find your document. You quickly search through your drawers and folders to find it, but it's gone behind your desk. You take 4 minutes to find your document and 2 minutes to reach your boss' office. Although you aren't late, you're exhausted and sweaty. In this situation, we know that an extra 4 minutes could have saved you a lot more time. You probably know from this course how a chaotic workplace can cost professionals valuable time and energy. It is therefore important to learn how to properly organize the workplace.
Learn more about team-wide communication
Communication is another factor that can impact the productivity and physical energy employees. A company's worst nightmare is a poorly written, spoken or ambiguous order/direction. Even worse, repeated cases can affect the leader's or colleague's influence over their subordinates/peers. It is very important for leaders and employees alike to learn how to relay orders through effective, concise and logical speech and grammatically-correct and well-written emails and memos. Companies and teams can save time and maintain loyalty by learning how to effectively communicate orders in speech as well as writing .
What is the difference between short-term and long-term planning
It is essential to have both short-term and long term planning skills. This will allow professionals to use their vision and resources to achieve a positive, sustainable, and feasible outcome. The latter will help you to see how even the smallest actions can lead to the most important goals. This is not always easy. Many people tend to be too focused on the immediate, which can lead to them working in a directionless fashion. Others may have the opposite: a clear vision of the future, but no plan to implement it. We will spend time with employees to teach them the basics of both long-term and short term planning, and how to use proven goal setting techniques.
Create backup plans
It's a fact that many plans don't always work out as planned. This can be due to a variety of factors, including an emergency, traffic jams or broken public transports. Professionals can't always control the circumstances or situations that arise, but they can control the quality of their plans. Planners who are skilled in planning know that plans can go wrong and they need to make backup plans or adjust for any problems. To account for traffic jams, a meeting that was scheduled for 2 o’clock can be moved quickly to 3 o’clock. There are many more complex versions. Participants will be able to create backups through engaging activities and dialog.
Learn effective task delegation
Every professional is different and has different abilities. It is the job of every team to determine how to allocate roles within their team to maximize efficiency. This can prove difficult because of individual quirks that may make it difficult to manage. You may need to learn as much about your colleagues and bosses as you can. Some people are serious and lonely while others can be more friendly and social. However, each trait has its own advantages that can lead to greater productivity for companies. We will discuss the personalities of members of teams and how they can be effective contributors.
