Description

About the seminar:

The role of an elected Councillor demands effectiveness in an ever-changing world which can be hampered by constraints but equally charged with increasing demands. Given these factors, it is important that Councillors maximise the time available through heightened self-awareness and the use of high-level skills.

This short interactive seminar/course is suitable for managing pressure at all levels, whether in the local authority, at home or delivering results for the community. The seminar/course will explore different approaches and techniques to manage oneself, goals and situations and make the best use of time.

During the seminar/course, appropriate tools and exercises will be used to develop understanding and skills while enjoying the opportunity to discuss, contribute and build upon shared experiences.

Designed for:

The seminar is designed for individuals to participate in a supportive environment. This seminar will be of value to all elected members irrespective of their position within the authority.

Participants will be able to:


  • Recognise the difference between simply coping and effective coping skills
  • Identify personal effectiveness in managing time
  • List those things that waste time
  • Identify ways to save time
  • Plan goals and organise activities
