Efficient time management and organisational skills

Andrew Hammond talks to experienced teacher, author and trainer, Andrew Jeffrey, about the relationship we all have with that most prized commodity: time. How can we use it efficiently? How can we move from being reactive to pro-active? Andrew shares some thoughts from his thirty-year career in teaching and leadership.

Each of us has exactly 24 hours in our day. What’s more, this will never change. How we spend them is supremely important, yet how often do we ever stop to think deeply about how we might best do so? In this fireside chat, Andrew Jeffrey shares some strategies to help us remain well-organised, efficient and with a positive mindset, whatever is thrown at us. Planning carefully may only motivate some of us, but a lack of planning can quickly demotivate all of us.

As we enter the summer break, and then think about the new academic year ahead, we consider some of the routines and rituals that may help us to stay on top and stay positive.
