The details

This workshop will help you meet your objectives, find workable solutions to problems, and learn how to maximise use of available resources.

You will explore a number of concepts and try out practical techniques including writing really SMART objectives, problem solving and assessing risks. You will also practice the essential people skills you’ll need to bring others with you.

You will leave with your own personal action plan to achieve your goals and do more with less. There is a small amount of pre-reading to do and please remember to bring your diaries with you, electronic or otherwise!
