Course Benefits

We all want to know how we can manage our workload, colleagues, clients and staff more effectively. We want to be productive, to have great working relationships and to achieve our goals, all without working so many hours that we lose sight of a personal life!

Propeller’s Improving Personal Effectiveness training course helps delegates to achieve these objectives. Delegates focus on how to increase personal effectiveness in order to maximise performance and reduce unnecessary working hours. In essence, how to "work smarter".

The workshop offers a range of practical techniques; including aspects of time management, communication, assertiveness and problem solving. These skills empower delegates with the personal confidence and ability to work more efficiently and prioritise tasks more effectively.

Following the course the delegates will be more empowered to make changes to their own approach to their work, reaping benefits for themselves and their organisation.
