CABA time management course for over-worked accountants

CABA is launching a course addressing time management for busy accountants, launching in October. The course content, based on doctoral research by Dr Hilary Lindsay, lecturer at the Open University Business School, looks at time management as an essential element within career adaptability

The course identifies strategies for analysing past and present ICAEW members’ use of time and improving planning to help increase effectiveness and confidence. It covers managing time both in and out of the workplace, helping to boost your career and maximising enjoyment of your home life, while improving focus, reducing stress and increasing a sense of control.

Laura Little, CABA learning and development manager, said: ‘Time management is a key skill whether you’re new to the workplace and trying to find your feet, or you’re in a senior position juggling task delegation, deadlines and a busy family life at home.

‘Mastering time management can benefit your productivity, as well as freeing up time to spend on the things that are important to you.’

Other areas covered by the course include:

  • Understanding and applying the principles of time management;
  • Identifying the difference between urgent and important tasks;
  • Being more productive but less busy;
  • Communicating with confidence and clarity;
  • Delegating effectively;
  • Utilising modern technology to work for you, not against you; and
  • Designing your own time management action plan.

Little added: ‘We work in a 24/7 world where we’re expected to be “on” all the time, so the ability to manage your time well is a valuable attribute, both in the workplace and at home. This course was specifically developed in response to demand from past and present ICAEW members and their families, so it’s fantastic to be able to roll this out free of charge.’
