"Effectively Managing Your Time and Priorities"; Speaker: Dr. Shelley Thompkins, East Region (Wilmington & Jacksonville) Virtual Meeting

Ways of Working



Are you finding yourself in need of getting more done in less time and yet you recognize the priorities that are before you? Join us for this interactive session where you will learn how to deal more effectively at managing multiple priorities and deadlines. You will be introduced to the Eisenhower Matrix aka “Urgent-Important Matrix” which will help you decide on and prioritize tasks by urgency and importance, sorting out less urgent and important tasks which you should either delegate or not do at all.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn a framework that helps you decide on and prioritize tasks by urgency and importance.
  • Put into practice the “Urgent-Important Matrix” that will help you to gain control over time and priorities.
  • Learn the advantages to delegating tasks to others – in whole or in part.
