Each month we feature a short editorial from one or more of our strategic partners containing useful information related to work and life.
In November, Anne Good from our strategic partner Eureka! offers you tips on how to manage your time!
Coaching quick tips
We are all working at a hundred miles and hour dealing with work, family and career choices, well it certainly feels that way, so what simple things can you adopt immediately to make space and, more importantly, time for yourself.
Managing your time is one of the most effective skills you can ever learn. Make a list of all the things that need doing – I know what your thinking – how can you make time in an already busy life to make a list! Well – changing your mindset will lead to more and effective use of your time.
Once the list has been made, the next step is to quickly go down the list and mark each item as follows:
A = items than need doing immediately or certainly within the next 24 hours
B = items that could be delegated to others – go on, you can do it!
C = items that can either be ignored or fitted into a planned schedule later in the week.
The most important thing is to be disciplined. Don’t get side tracked by e-mails, phone calls or Facebook.
So get a move on and claim back your life by putting some order into your schedule – remember, it’s as easy as A,B,C
SKYPE coaching – techworks!
Over the last eighteen months I have been using Skype more and more to work with my clients. This article lays out the benefits of using Internet technology to manage our busy 21st century lifestyles.
I love it, but what’s more important, so do my clients. You may have a very busy lifestyle and would simply like to have the chance of sharpening your mind, talking through a business issue or drawing up an action plan to change jobs or careers. But, how on earth can you fit in coaching – before or after work or during an all too short lunch break?
Well, you can. There is no more travelling to and from a face-to-face session at my office. You can sit in the comfort of your own home or office using Skype. The cost of the call is absolutely free and you immediately gain valuable time and money that otherwise would have been spent travelling to and from the meeting.
- You can still maintain your coaching support at a time that is convenient to you – even if you go on holiday or out of town on business.
- Optimum state of mind – by choosing your own environment to be coached from, you are automatically in a more receptive mind-set, so you can get better results.
- If you travel a lot on business you can call from your location when you really need to.
- You have complete control of the situation, which is great for creating increased confidence.
- Skype Coaching can fit into, even the busiest life style commitments.
What next? Drop me an e-mail to set up a convenient time for us to speak on Skype. In order to get the most out of the call, take a few minutes before the appointment time to relax so that we make the most of the session.
Make sure you have pen and paper for making important notes. Privacy is assured and the session commences for approximately one and a half hours.
You can have your own personal Eureka! moment starting today. It’s so simple!
