Training Needs

This training needs to give the participants ideas on how to improve their personal efficiency, as well as help to give them an understanding of the underlying causes for their challenges. Practical ideas and tips are essential to help people improve.


This activity included designing and delivering a virtual training workshop on Personal Efficiency with the desired outcomes including:

  1. Raising the participants’ awareness of the underlying issues.
  2. Increased knowledge of how to improve their efficiency.
  3. Personal action plans to implement.

The Agenda included:

  • Participant challenges.
  • The need to be self organised.
  • Do we manage time or ourselves?
  • ITD Work Style Model.
  • Biorhythms.
  • Prioritising.
  • Procrastination
  • Habits.
  • Managing emails.
  • Meetings.
  • Managing time grabbers.
  • Planning your day / week.
  • Personal actions.

The workshop involved about 30 people in the main training theatre, with about 40 people online via Zoo. A big challenge was to keep everyone engaged and involved. This we did by asking questions of individuals online, as well as having a colleague with microphone going to people in the theatre.


Each participant shared their specific actions online.
