Time Management and Effectual Coping Skills

East Midlands Councils is holding a half day workshop on Being an Effective Councillor: Time Management and Effectual Coping Skills on 26 February 2019.

About the seminar:

The role of an elected Councillor demands effectiveness in an ever changing world which can be hampered by constraints but equally charged with increasing demands. Given these factors it is important that Councillors maximise the time available through heightened self-awareness and the use of high level skills.

This short interactive seminar is suitable for managing pressure at all levels, whether in the local authority, at home or delivering results for the community. The seminar will explore different approaches and techniques to manage oneself, goals and situations and make the best use of time.

During the seminar/course appropriate tools and exercises will be used to develop understanding and skills while enjoying the opportunity to discuss, contribute and build upon shared experiences.

Designed for:

The seminar is designed for individuals to participate in a supportive environment. This seminar will be of value to all elected members irrespective of their position within their authority.

Participants will be able to:

  • Recognise the difference between simply coping and effective coping skills
  • Identify personal effectiveness in managing time
  • List those things that waste time
  • Identify ways to save time
  • Plan goals and organise activities
  • Make the best use of time management techniques and approaches to suit individual needs
