How to make the most of your time

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Fo­cus on the time we can con­trol rather than what we can’t.

That’s the ad­vice from time man­age­ment ex­pert Robyn Pearce.

Traf­fic and long travel times are a fact of life for many Auck­land res­i­dents and busi­nesses, and Ms Pearce says this time drain is just an­other chal­lenge for busy peo­ple.

‘‘The time queen’’ rec­om­mends that to im­prove our lives and/or busi­ness we fo­cus on the time we can con­trol rather than what we can’t.

We can’t con­trol the traf­fic, but we can make good de­ci­sions about the time in the rest of our day, she says.

Ms Pearce is host­ing an Auck­land break­fast work­shop on Au­gust 9 fo­cus­ing on del­e­ga­tion and ef­fec­tive time­m­an­age­ment.

She is part­ner­ing with HR guru Lisa Mackay from the HRToolkit.

They will share strate­gies en­abling busi­nesses to gain back valu­able time and get the most out of their em­ploy­ees in the time avail­able.

Ms Pearce says: ‘‘Good del­e­ga­tion is a ma­jor chal­lenge for most peo­ple, but if we can del­e­gate ef­fec­tively then we can dra­mat­i­cally re­duce the amount of in­ter­rup­tions and in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity.’’

Ms Mackay will cover top­ics like how to man­age staff ef­fec­tively and the le­gal steps to fol­low if some­one needs to go from the busi­ness.

Both seg­ments will be full of prac­ti­cal tips to take away and im­ple­ment im­me­di­ately and are ap­pli­ca­ble to busi­nesses and teams of all sizes.

Time-saver: Robyn Pearce, aka ‘‘The time queen’’, is a worl­drenowned ex­pert in time man­age­ment. Her up­com­ing work­shop will help peo­ple learn how to del­e­gate.
