Mastering Time Management: An 8-Day Practical Program

Mastering Time Management:
An 8-Day Practical Program

Take charge of your priorities and purpose. Join our program to learn how to lose your “to-do” lists and focus on your most meaningful work instead.

Sign up to receive bite-sized time management lessons and activities daily for 8 business days.

We have partnered with Steve Riccio, one of Academic Impressions’ Success Coaches, to bring you this course and help you take back control of your day-to-day schedule by empowering you to focus on the priorities that matter the most to you. Through a combination of self-reflection and skills-practice activities, you will transform the way you manage your time by learning how to:

  • Identify and focus on your purpose and top priorities in order to move towards greater effectiveness
  • Define goals that drive you toward achieving your purpose without overwhelming you
  • Create and manage a schedule that allows you to accomplish your most important work first
  • Protect your schedule and stay accountable to your top priorities when distractions and derailments inevitably arise

 

Is This Video Course for Me?

You will benefit from this video course if you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions:

  • Are you struggling to find the time to keep up with your growing “to-do” list?
  • Do you feel like most of your time is spent on wasteful or frivolous tasks instead of your most important and meaningful work?
  • Do you wish you felt more connected to or engaged with your work?

After participating in this video course, you’ll walk away with tips and strategies that will allow you to develop new habits for how you manage your time and schedule so you can fully maximize your effectiveness and value.

The time management principles shared in this course can be implemented by anyone, at any level.
