Top Ten Tips for Teachers and FE Managers

Top Ten Tips for Teachers and FE Managers

by

Arnie Skelton, Managing Director at Effective Training & Development Ltd, shares his Top Ten Tips for Teachers and FE Managers on a variety of subjects.

The first in the series, this podcast outlines 10 top tips and ideas for managing that precious commodity, time, as well as you can.

How much time do you actually have, and own? And, seriously, can you really manage time? Doesn’t time just manage itself? How can you make the best use of the time you have? How can you prevent, or at least effectively manage overload?

What’s the significant difference between urgent and important, and what happens if you always prioritise by urgent. What’s meant by an opportunity cost – and why is it important in terms of time management? How can you better manage interruptions – the bane of many people’s working life? What’s the difference between a deadline and a duration, and how will that knowledge help you manage tasks much more effectively?
And what are the 3 most frustrating things about emails – and how at a stroke, you can make them less onerous and time consuming.

Arnie has spent the last 30 years working in a wide range of organisations, and all his tips are totally practical, and can be implemented by anyone, any time, at no financial cost. In this week’s podcast, Arnie offers his top ten development books – books that have changed his life, and may also change yours.
