The last two years have been a struggle for all of us. As professionals, our roles have drastically changed. A large majority of us are taking on more responsibilities, whether we want to or not, inevitably leading to feelings of being overwhelmed and/or burnt-out. It wasn’t until 2019 that the World Health Organization officially classified burnout as a disease, but as the pandemic surges on, many organizations are scrambling to balance their employee’s morale, and workloads, while at the same time trying to move the needle forward. Having a healthy work-life balance is paramount in today,s “new normal”, having the tools to combat behaviours that perpetuate stressful situations is a must.
Stress management and time management seem somewhat synonymous since our lack of time is what causes so much of our stress. A large majority of us are our own worst enemies, whether your time management skills are lacking, or your “type A” behaviour is pushing you to strive for unrealistic levels, or perhaps it’s your inability to say no at times when you need to get down to business, or is it simply procrastination, these destructive patterns that so many of us are trapped in need to be addressed. One of the most admired characteristics of possessing a high emotional intelligence is that of positive and productive self-management. “The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.”-Michael Altshuler

You will determine your primary professional behavioural style by completing the imind inventory
Once your individual style is identified, we will highlight what your primary stressors are both socially and professionally

You will be assessed on whether you have a type A personality or not, and if so, show you ways to curb this destructive behavior
Whether or not you hold irrational beliefs
Identify the difference between EQ and IQ
Time style questionnaire to assess your strengths/weaknesses in time management
We will determine how much control you feel like you have both at work and in your everyday life and how it relates to you and the work-life balance
Focus on 3 key aspects of time management. The unimportant task, the unanticipated task, and other people’s priorities
Learn how to say NO
Procrastination, why we do it, and how to stop
