Everyone is an individual and it is unrealistic to think that there can be one prescriptive time-management approach that will work for all. However, most of us will be aware of and recognise similar symptoms and it is important to be open-minded to the variety of ‘cures’ available. This training activity helps develop this open-minded approach and gives participants the opportunity to identify their long-term goals. Then they will be clear about what they want to achieve and why.

You begin this training activity by giving the participants a case study illustrating the potential dangers of dismissing the benefits of a course. You then ask the participants to complete a questionnaire to help them identify their personal long-term goals and how they need to use these goals to make the skills they learn real and relevant to them.

Who is it for: This training resource is intended for use by trainers to enable participants address the reluctance to change.

Purpose: This training resource is intended for use by trainers and can be useful at the beginning of a chosen range of training activities to gain participants’ commitment towards the need to adopt good time-management principles. It can be particularly beneficial for those who have a tendency to attend courses but not put the new skills they have learnt into practice.
