Time Management and Delegation Skills

Creative Learning Solutions’ Time Management course is aimed at those who work at all levels within an office environment. However, it can also be taken by those who wish to gain the skills to effectively manage their time at work. To be effective in their role, managers must meet their targets and objectives and they cannot do this on their own; they require the help and support from all staff within their department. This course aims to enable managers to plan, organise, control and motivate themselves and their staff in order to meet or even exceed these targets.
