time and stress management for rookies by Frances Kay

 

For anyone who wants to manage their time better and reduce stress at work!

  • Part of the launch of a major new series - 'Rookies'- by Marshall Cavendish.
  • Become skilled and knowledgeable in just one week- information and advice is straight to the point, fast to read and easy to digest.
  • Managing your time is crucial to effectiveness and performance at work - and is a huge factor in reducing stress.
  • Written by an experienced practitioner and expert in the field.

Whoever you are, whatever you do, you have things you want to achieve. To get things done it helps to be organised. In other words, those who are best prepared are more likely to accomplish things than those who aren't. If you can't manage your time, you'll find that the hours pass no matter what. And if there's nothing to show for it, this can be upsetting and stressful. But that's only a problem if you don't have strategies and tactics for dealing with such issues. Aimed at virtually anyone, this book provides you with practical ideas and easy-to-follow methods that you can put into practice immediately. It will equip you with the skills for keeping your head (when all about you may be losing theirs). If you can do this, not only will your time management be good, your personal effectiveness will improve and your confidence increase. That will do a lot to keep the stress levels from red-lining.
