For most of us, life is so busy that it is common to feel overwhelmed. Time management training can help you take control of your workload, your day-to-day tasks and your life! You can then enjoy less stress, less procrastination and more satisfaction from achieving more.
At CX Training, we see effective time management as essentially a mindset and an emotional intelligence challenge. Emotional intelligence is commonly known as EI or EQ (which stands for “emotional quotient”). It is the ability to perceive, interpret, demonstrate, evaluate, control and use emotions to communicate with and relate to others effectively and constructively. According to the Emotional Intelligence Society of Australia, it can help you with everyday life decisions, and time management training for employees can assist with enhancing proactivity in the workplace.
The skills and actions needed to effectively manage our time in terms of planning and personal organisation are relatively straightforward. An effective time management training course can help develop a clear objective focus that can prioritise and build control of our long-term rational selves over our ‘weaker selves’. These include things like excuses, comfort zones, doubts, anxieties, dubious self-justifications and confidence issues.
TIME MANAGEMENT AND PRODUCTIVITY TRAINING
Our time management and productivity training can give you the tools and confidence to spend time on what matters by eliminating low-value or low-priority activities from your day. And it’s not about cramming more into your already busy schedule, but focusing on:
Outputs, not inputs
Achieving more, not doing more
The value, not the length of your to-do list
How you can win or create more time for yourself by eliminating low-priority or unnecessary activity.
At CX Training, we can tailor a time management skills training course that is specific to your needs and addresses challenges.
TIME MANAGEMENT TRAINING COURSE: WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
CX Training goes deeper than just developing skills. We challenge mindsets to change behaviours. Most time management skills training providers focus on content and skills. This approach doesn’t lead to true behavioural change because people haven’t been challenged. They hang on to the mindsets and excuses they have always had.
We don’t just work off a script, we work off people. We facilitate insightful self-awareness and challenge limiting beliefs and excuses. Then we lay the skills on top, resulting in learning outcomes that are realistic, transferable, long-term and life-changing!
We also offer time management and productivity workshops tailored to you or your team’s specific needs. We go beyond “tips and tricks” to help people better identify, understand and overcome their individual time management challenges.
Bringing about behavioural change often requires more than just a group training session. We can also support you after any initial training through coaching, leader support, webinars, micro-learning and follow-up implementation workshops.
If you’re looking for a customer experience coach who challenges you, breaks down your barriers, but still has fun along the way, we have the time management training course for you!

CX Training Time Management workshops can be delivered either face-to-face or online via Zoom or Teams software. We recommend a half-day workshop (3.5 hours), a short day (5 to 6 hours) or a full day.
The workshop will be challenging and interactive, based on a range of time management training activities, including group discussions, paired discussions and individual challenge exercises. During the workshop, people will be encouraged to challenge their own behaviours and attitudes. Weak excuses and justifications will be respectfully countered with a view to building individual insight and accountability. Everyone will leave the workshop with their own commitments for personal time management improvements.

FAQS – TIME MANAGEMENT TRAINING
#1 How long are your time management training workshops?
We can tailor a workshop to meet your specific requirements, but we recommend a workshop of between a half-day and a full day (3.5 to 7.5 hours).
