Getting things done is the way to get on in life. If you want to get on in your career and personal life you will need to get things done. In the modern world, however, there are lots of different people wanting lots of different things to be done, and you can’t do everything for everyone, unless you get much better at a number of different things.
Delegates will gain the personal insight and practical skills to develop and implement a framework for successful time management. You will also learn proven tools and techniques to make better day-to-day choices about investing your time and achieving your goals.
