All day, every day, we take steps to manage our time. From coordinating calendars and communicating with loved ones to prioritizing tasks at work and home, we are challenged on a daily basis to balance the time we are given each day. Time management is so important, in fact, that February is National Time Management Month!
Time management is an important skill that helps keep personal and professional priorities under control. It also helps reduce stress. You’ve heard the saying “time is money.” As all employers know, wasted time is indeed a waste of money – and a drain on resources for employers.
Today’s students need to be aware of their own time management skills and how they can strengthen areas that may need improvement, no matter what career path they enter. Resources like our RealCareer™ Employability Skills Program can help students learn the importance of time as a finite resource, and how to manage it well.
You can learn more about how our soft skills program addresses time management by downloading this free lesson, which challenges students to prioritize tasks and overcome barriers to time management.
