If you're a busy person, then this workshop is for you.

Do you find the Urgent/Important Matrix is no longer working as in the modern working environment there are too many urgent and important tasks. Everything is a priority, and everything must be done now! We might create a plan, but then emergencies come up, our plan gets put aside, and we spend our time fighting fires.

The reality is that our time is limited and we can't always do everything. What we need to do is to make the most of the energy we have and focus it in the right places.

In this workshop, Jamie Dixon will guide you through a Time Management Methodology called CORD (Collect, Organise, Review, Do). He will help you build your own easy-to-use system for managing your tasks to help you make the best decisions about what to do in each moment.

· Build your own Time Management System
· Make better decisions about what to do in each moment
· Manage Procrastination

Speaker Introduction

Jamie Dixon

Training Consultant, Coach and the author of ‘Shaping Paths – How to Design and Deliver PRACTICAL Training’

Originally from the UK, Jamie has been based in China since 2006. His working background is in HR, having worked in recruitment and later on as a training manager at Amway China. As a trainer, he has worked with over 120 different multinational clients throughout China and the APAC region. He delivers training in both English and Mandarin.

Jamie’s focus area is on helping people connect with others. This involves helping people communicate more assertively, influence others, lead others and present their ideas through storytelling.

Jamie’s Training Philosophy:
People forget things, so if we depend on people remembering things from training then the training is doomed to failure. Consequently, Jamie believes that we should design training around people using things as opposed to remembering things. So, he designs his training around tools like checklists, templates, forms and so on. That way, instead of having to remember things after the training, all people need to do is use the tools and then they’ll be applying their learning directly back to the workplace.

But just because we design a tool, that doesn’t mean people will use it. So, Jamie takes lessons from the field of user experience design to simplify his tools, make them fit better into the working environment, and help solve problems that learners want to solve. His goal is always to design practical tools that learners will actually use back at work.

Jamie then uses his Five Elements of Training to help learners master the tools in training. His Five Elements include Priming to get people ready to learn, Guiding to help people use the tools, Practicing to help people try the tools, Reflecting to help people master the tools, and Committing to help people use the tools back at work.
