Workshop "Time management"
Dr. phil. Astrid Mehr (DENKZEIT GmbH) animates this workshop with the aim that participants acquire tools to set prioprities and actively manage time. They learn how to deal with the unexpected and get more aware of how they sometimes waste their time and what they can do about it.
- Getting and keeping an overview of one's own goals and tasks
- Prioritising methods and planning (days) in advance
- Dealing with interruptions and the unexpected, e.g. du to care duties
- Reducing waste of time (due to “irrational” behaviour)
