A training methodology that works.

As well as the standard learning principles of applied adult learning and effective reinforcement through workshop based activity, Drake Training incorporates its own methodology which has been derived from over 23 years of professional development and executive training. The STAR methodology is applied to every Drake Training course; it commences with the identification of existing knowledge, moves on to building skills and techniques and is completed by relating learning to the workplace and committing to behavioural change.

Course Overview
Do you feel stressed about the number of tasks you need to get done and feel like you can never seem to get on top of things? Has it ever seemed like there aren’t enough hours in the day? In this course we examine what effective time management really means and what each of us has to do to achieve it. We look at the importance of having a clear life vision in order to help us use our time wisely and the specific goals and objectives that will help us actualise this vision. Participants are introduced to a wide range of time management tools and techniques, they are given time to consider which ones are appropriate for their lifestyle and then practice them in a fun and supportive environment. In the final topic of this course participants, prepare their action plan for long term change.
