Front Cover
Pan Macmillan UK, May 1, 2002 - Business & Economics - 176 pages

Time is a precious resource, both irreplaceable and irreversible, yet we often fill our days with time-wasting activities and leave ourselves without enough time for our real priorities. As an effective manager, you need to possess strong time management skills in order to ensure that both you and your team are working as efficiently and effectively as possible and making the most of every hour of the working day.

By first encouraging you to analyze where, how and why you are spending your time at present and then think about the future, set goals and develop plans, John Adair, Britain's foremost expert on leadership training, will help you to:
Reduce time pressures by ridding yourself of activities that waste time
Learn how to save time by delegating
Reallocate your time to achieve your goals/produce better results

Effective Time Management contains a multitude of indispensable time-saving tips covering every aspect of the working day, such as meetings, reading, travelling or talking on the phone, which will enable you to use your time to think more creatively and help you to see time as an ally instead of an enemy.
