Developing Time Intelligence

Trainer: Anil Bhatnagar

Duration: 2 days

About The Workshop:

  •  ‘Developing Time Intelligence’ is not one among any of the run-of-the-mill workshops on time management. The workshop, based on 15 different Time intelligence competencies*(listed below), checks the participants on their existing ‘TIQ’ i.e.  Time intelligence quotient. The participants discover what all it takes to use their time intelligently so as to bring order, right prioritization, efficiency and effectiveness in their life. The workshop is based on four pillars of change: passion, principles, planning, and practice. Unlike other usual workshops on the subject, instead of sermonizing on what the participants should or should not do, this workshop directly sets out to identify, and fine tune the elements of the mental software that shape our responses. It seeks to develop one’s intelligence and habits to use one’s time more effectively through a progressively growing awareness of the value of time and by triggering a process of gradual but ceaseless transformation of one’s attitude and habits.
  • A majority of managers fail to realize that providing the proper planning (nutritious food) is not enough. Along with the creation of a proper environment, one also needs to ensure within oneself and among the team members the mental and emotional readiness (the appetite) for it too.
  • Any attempt that does not take care of these subtle realities i.e.,  the environment, and the mental and emotional readiness can only bring temporary and lukewarm change at best; no wonder there are so few who succeed in inculcating real time intelligence skills.
  • This workshop considers the fact that most executives, to some extent are already intelligent enough to plan their time; what they fail at is not planning but implementation part of it. Yet usual workshops dedicate almost all their time to planning part of it. Hence, unlike usual workshops on time management, this one stresses not only on planning part of it adequately  but also on identifying the real psychological bottlenecks that keep executives from sticking to their own plans. Time management is not merely a left-brained logical planning but more of cultivation of a spirited will and unswerving inner determination to stick to it--and this is what this workshop develops in the participants apart from everything else that makes one a complete time-genius manager. This workshop develops among participants the real time-intelligence because of which they will be able to develop a consciousness to extract the best from each of their present moments. The workshop also enables participants to develop their own effective customized time planners to take care of their unique shortcomings, needs, and style.
  • The workshop checks the participants and provides a pragmatic power-packed customized blue print for developing in them the following 15 Time intelligent competencies*.
