139 Time Management Tips
The safety responsibility on supervisors is growing. Investigations show that “better supervision” could have prevented many accidents. BUT WAIT A MINUTE! How can supervisors supervise properly when they’re bogged down in paperwork, phone calls and meetings? All this administration keeps them away from the worksite. Many managers are aware of the burden on their supervisors and are taking steps to reduce it. However, you don’t have to wait for others to take action.
This e-Book gives you 139 straightforward ways to release more of your time so you can supervising your people even more effectively. Apply even a quarter of the suggestions and you’ll see a remarkable difference. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to save two to three hours a day! Yes, I know that may sound impossible with what you're facing right now but I know it is. For over 15 years I've given time management courses for supervisors and managers and the feedback is always positive.
No theory - just great practical tips
You’ll find the e-Book to-the-point and practical. I won’t be wasting your time with theoretical lectures on how valuable time is or with filling in a weekly time log to see how you use your time. You know all this already! This isn't just a book on time management - it applies the principles to freeing up your time so you can devote more of it to safety tasks. There is a valuable section on training the subconscious mind for better time use - you often don't find this in time management books and courses.
The 139 suggestions have been distilled from years of making mistakes during my own and others’ struggles. Simple is good and you’ll see just how powerful many of the suggestions are once you start using them. This e-Book is only 37 pages because it's A4 format and I've cut out all the fancy design and pictures in case you want to print a hardcopy. I've used bullet points to get to the heart of the matter quickly.
