Keys to Team Building with New EmployeesLeaders Speakers was chosen to facilitate a Time Management Workshop for the Sodexo Food Service Group. Rachel Ayalya, General Manager Sodexo Campus Services University of South Carolina contacted Leaders Speakers to facilitate a program that would help her management staff develop more effective time management techniques by changing ineffective habits and how to overcome obstacles. Leaders Speakers one day workshop  showed them how to plan their day well in advance with effective time management tools – how to prepare a Task Plan. We defined and showed how to them establish goals, priorities and activities and how important it is to establish practical measureable and definable goals, define activities associated with achieving goals, and how to define your priorities. The process translates to organizing activities in priority that need to be done that day against the time that needs to be allocated to each activity. Important emphasis was given on how to keep on track and AVOID the distractions that keep individuals from accomplishing their daily goals. We teach that setting goals and Objectives is important. Working without effective time management goals and targets does not establish a “tangible” plan for what you want to accomplish.

Time Management Tips and Strategies

We made the participants aware of the fallacy that some people think they may even have it all in their head, but without an established plan you will go off course and fail to achieve your objectives. Leaders Speakers also showed the group of Managers good time management skills included” How to Tame the Email Monster”. Most employees get bogged down with and are slaves to their email which is a HUGE time waste and can account for many hours wasted hours that could be better spent on other priorities. The group seemed surprised to learn that one of the basic email rules is 99 percent of emails do not require immediate action and 50 percent require no action at all! In the end the Managers learned how to determine sources of time management challenges, use Time Management tools to change habits and behaviors, and Time Management requires discipline.
