Optimal 24 Program

Setting priorities and managing time effectively is basic to managing individual and organizational performance. The pressure to find innovative ways to achieve goals, pay attention to the competition, respond quickly to customer needs, and enjoy life outside of work is even more intense in today’s less structured, information-driven workplace. Meeting the daily challenge of managing professional and personal responsibilities requires a learning strategy designed to meet individual needs.

Our Virtual Optimal 24 time management program, based in part on DiSC Time Mastery Profile, is designed to help users accomplish more of the right things at the right time. The focus is on behavior, not keeping a day runner or planner - although those are useful tools once priorities are established and behaviors impacting attitudes toward time are understood.

This program consists of virtual classroom activities and online pre-work including the Everything DiSC assessment. The program follows up on the personal insights gained from the research validated Everything DiSC  profile by using the Time Mastery Profile® which is a unique time management tool that provides participants with a complete, self-directed assessment of their current time management effectiveness. Learners then use a workbook as a frame work to develop customized strategies for skills improvement in twelve key areas that affect time management: Attitudes; Goals; Priorities; Delegation; Procrastination; Analyzing; Planning; Written Communications; Team Time; Scheduling; Interruptions; and Meetings.
