In small groups, simply work through a set of 30 cards, discuss the issues raised and reach a conclusion.
The cards will help you all to analyse the way you use that precious commodity, time. Do you know exactly what you are supposed to be doing each day? Do you plan ahead properly? Are you aware of your ingrained time-wasting activities? Others cards will probe your organisation's approach to time management planning, individual responsibility and level of efficiency. Other cards give you specific tasks to do - all related to your use of time and personal effectiveness at work.
Be honest! You may uncover some unpalatable facts but it’s all with good humour and you won’t be alone! Leave with down-to-earth tips, techniques and simple rules you can easily practice back at work to make your time go further.
This activity is for face-to-face classroom use. It is supplied as a hard copy pack and the digital files are supplied via the Northgate Trainerhub.
The cards stimulated some fantastic discussions about real situations that staff currently face. The debrief was able to consolidate these ideas for the whole team, providing solutions to take back to the workplace.

Another top product from Northgate! I've used these 'Personal Effectiveness Cards' a number of times with managers and have obtained excellent results. Positive improvements in effectiveness all round.
Barry Goodall, MD, Dark Blue Training & Development
Used for time management – in a half day course. The 'Personal Effectiveness Cards' address all learning styles. It's not just a 'here’s how to do it' session - it generates discussion and thought processes from participants.

Lively, thought-provoking. I use the 'Personal Effectiveness Cards' activity as part of either a Time Management Course or a Managing for Effectiveness Programme with team leaders and middle managers. The best learning points are self awareness, sharing 'good' ideas, and a different approach. A quick and easy way to help people consider their current practices and identify ways they can improve. I think Northgate products are great – I’ve not bought one that doesn’t work yet – thank you.
