Working can be a lot of fun. But are you always in a hurry? Do you feel your work is never finished? If so, this has a negative influence on your productivity, your peace of mind and your health.

Do you recognize one or more of the following issues:

  • Losing overview and having difficulty prioritizing between tasks;
  • Being too optimistic in planning;
  • Spending more time than you want on e-mails; 
  • Getting distracted from important tasks;
  • Finding that doing things yourself is the quickest way;
  • Having difficulty saying 'no'?

It is possible to change bad habits and do things differently. Those who know what they want and plans, have time to relax. This training will show you how.

Depending on the COVID-19 situation and measures, the training will either be converted into a classroom training in Eindhoven or into a live, online interactive training.

Remarks from participants

"Keep up the exercises, they are very good. Also the experience stories from participants and lecturer are very good."

Wouter de Nijs - Flanders

"Saying 'no' is not so bad! It left me with a positive feeling, eager to practice. Even more so after day 2."

Stanley Teuben - NXP Semiconductors

"My mindset has changed toward better time management. Delegating techniques are very useful. Good training, a small group works excellent. Other people's experience also very useful."

Mike Curvers - NTS group

"I would like to say how powerful the time management training has been for me now that it has been a few weeks. My overall efficiency has increased. Less stress, email is constantly up to date and meetings are prepared. My coworkers look at it with positive amazement and want to know more. Even my wife notices the difference. Sometimes I have more free time while doing more work."

Johan Knol - NXP Semiconductors
