Using time management as self-management: the essence of planning and organising

Do you often feel overwhelmed by your work? Wanting to manage time is impossible, because whatever we do, time never stands still. But controlling the way we deal with unforeseen circumstances, interruptions or urgent matters is something we can work on.

Time management is easy once we accept that time cannot be managed and that we are in control of the way we manage our time! Our behaviour, our habits, and our conditioning influence the way we manage our time. Why? What lies behind this? Discover how you can eliminate certain time-consuming activities.

Aperçu du programme

Step 1 (about 1h)

2 weeks before the start of the online session, the training already starts in Karibu. You will already get to know the trainer a little better and you can post your expectations, discover your personal motivations and, by watching a video, we will question you about writing down the priorities and main tasks in your job. We will work with the results of these exercises during the online class.


Step 2: online class (3h)

Time for action! Your trainer will coach you through the basics of time management and help you with your self-management. Together with the feedback from your fellow participants, we will look for strategies and tips that will inspire you towards healthy time management, commitment and satisfaction with your tasks.

  • Our vision, definition and principles of time management
  • Time management is life management, and it means taking control of your time better
  • How do your personal drivers impact your own time management?
  • Is multitasking more productive than single-tasking?
  • How to plan using the NIRAC method
  • How to deal with time-wasters
  • The course of the further training in step 3 (Karibu)
  • Your personal development plan


Step 3 (about 1h)

Karibu remains the place to be, even after the online class. You will find additional inspirational information in the form of 7 theoretical sheets and a TED talk on procrastination. You can find the full syllabus there and we end with a quiz where you can test your acquired knowledge. In Karibu, you can share your experiences and questions with fellow participants for 6 months after the online training.
