Stress plays an important role in all areas of life.

Effective Time Management
DATE: February 28, March 1 — 9:00 am to 10:30/11:00 am
Time management has been talked about for a long time, but the term creates a false impression because time cannot be managed. We can only manage ourselves and our use of the time we have. This course will provide the participant with learning tools to build time management techniques into their daily routine so they can recognize and solve personal time and management time problems, how to stay in control of their day, understand the importance of defining priorities, and how to apply different approaches to their schedule.
