“An excellent reminder of setting daily goals and time management. These are areas that can and do get pushed aside in a busy environment.”
“Cool – but hard to search for advice on specific questions (eg how to say “No” without implying the request just isn’t important enough). Agree with a lot of your tips which gives me faith in new ideas (eg Deconstruct problem before Analysing). Thanks very much!!”

“Generally I found this really helpful and encouraging. I do some of the organisational activities well already but it has given me some useful ideas for improvement and encouragement that I am on the right track. Sometimes workload stresses arise because the work/home balance is not working well…!

“It made me consider my own working methods and see where I am going wrong. Also showed me what I am doing right. Useful tips too!”

“It helped with getting me focused on what needs to be done regarding workload and prioritising my tasks.”

“It made me think about priorities and how to tackle the problem of too much to do and too little time.”

“Challenging and engaging”

“Made me think of how to approach my problem and how to find solutions.”

“Well presented format and easy on the eyes which retains interest. The quiz and various questions are welcome as continuous reading can be tiresome!”
