Business Skills Training Program

Announcing our New “Business Skills Training Program”

A powerful series of short and long training courses, that enable you and your team to develop your business and day to day work skills. 

My whole purpose for putting this program together, is to help you the business owner or childcare centre owner, to be able to access material for working with the issues involved in growing and developing your business or centre.

You can go to courses and events that are one, two, or three days in length, or even do a long-term training program. But the problem is, do you get the time to work on and implement the material you learn, when you get back to the office? There is generally a lot of information that you need to work through from the event. Or, you learn something that you may not do for a number of years and you forget it.

I wanted to develop something that enables you to be able to access affordable training based on the issues you are dealing with in the moment. Something that, when the issue happens, you can go and view the material in 10 to 20 minutes and then go and deal with it there and then.

Material that is available to you immediately at The Time Retrieveryour fingertips, 24hrs a day, 365 days a year, when and where you need it.

I also want to ensure that you are working on the longer-term development of your business.

So, this program provides you the training courses as individual components, and also some of these individual courses have been grouped together as long courses, for the future planning and growth of your business.

The courses aren’t just for you, they can be used to help train your team members in a wide array of skills that are required for them to be able to work effectively and efficiently in your business.

You can use these courses in your regular meetings, where a part of the meeting is based on training your team. You can use them in specific training days or training sessions, and they can be used as individual training, where your team members can be setup with access to the course you want them to work on.

Again, my whole aim is to provide you with as much business and work skills training for you and your team, as I can. All of these skills are what I found I needed to develop in myself and my teams, to be successful in the roles I was involved in, and in the services I still provide today.

You will notice, that I mention business and childcare centres, that’s because we have been working with business and childcare owners for many years now, and you will find that although the courses in the program work with generic issues relative to both business and childcare, some of the courses may use childcare centre terminology and examples.

We are adding new courses to the program on a regular basis, at no extra cost to you. I have a long list of courses to develop and I welcome input from you, on what course you feel would be beneficial to our subscribers.

Time Retrievers - Free Weekly Coaching SessionsWhen you subscribe to this program, you will also receive a digital copy of “The Time Retriever” book, access to the free weekly “Ask The Time Retriever” webinars, where you can have your questions answered, and access to our Time Retrievers group on FaceBook.

You are welcome to subscribe to this program by clicking on the “Join today”button, or if you would like to combine this training program with being involved in a group or 1 to 1 coaching program, you can simply email me and I will be in contact with you to provide the information and talk about your business or childcare centre.

Peter is an experienced business coach who has been working with over 158 businesses and childcare centres, and thousands of people in his workshops and speaking engagements.

He found that another of the big issues for business owners, is the lack of knowledge and skill on how to employ high quality team members .

He has helped business owners create successful businesses, through first developing their time management skills and then using these skills, plus many others, to grow and develop the critical areas of their businesses.

Whenever you are ready, there are four ways we can help you;

Business Crisis Management

Business Crisis Management

If you spend more of your time putting out fires than doing your work, you are managing by crisis.

Management by crisis is a phrase used to describe the common problem of allowing unexpected events, interruptions, problems, or emergencies to dictate your priorities and actions.

Effective crisis management is such an important skill to have and of course, use; It is an essential skill of effective time managers, because unexpected things do happen in every business, every day. Sometimes we do need to react quickly to a crisis and contain it before it does more damage. The problem comes when crisis management becomes the routine rather than the exception. If you spend more of your time putting out fires than doing your work, you are managing by crisis.

When crisis management becomes the routine, it can easily lead to what Stephen Covey refers to as “Urgency Addiction.” People that are addicted to urgency, enjoy putting out fires, they like stepping in and solving problems, and their bosses often reward them for doing so. They have no incentive to avoid or prevent the fires, because they get a payoff every time they put one out.

To eliminate the worst practice of management by crisis, you need to take two important steps. First, you must distinguish between a real crisis — which is something important that requires your immediate attention — and other lesser problems, events, or interruptions that do not qualify as a true crisis.

The second key step is to realize that when crisis management becomes the routine rather than the exception, it’s usually pointing to a more fundamental problem that needs to be solved. There is an old Chinese proverb that says: “The superior doctor prevents sickness. The mediocre doctor attends to impending sickness. The inferior doctor treats sickness.” Don’t just treat the symptoms of the latest crisis, cure the underlying disease and prevent it from recurring. This is most often achieved by applying a system-based solution to the problem i.e. installing a procedure to eliminate the problem forever, rather than a band-aid approach to fix it once. Awareness of how much time in your day (read, ‘your life’) is being lost to ‘Management by Crisis’ is the key to motivating you to spending the initial time to get it right.

Traditional Time Management Courses Set You Up For Failure!

Traditional Time Management Courses Set You Up For Failure!

When I went from supervising 17 team members, to managing over 100 team members, my days fell apart. With all of the constant interruptions and distractions, stopping me from getting the things on my list done.

I did a time management course, and I found that it taught me what I was already doing. I didn’t learn anything about stopping interruptions, distractions or to stop my-self putting things off.

I have done several time management courses since, and I continually review ones I see advertised. They haven’t changed, they teach you how to create your vision, set your goals, and develop plans on how you will achieve your goals. Then you learn how to plan your weeks and plan your day. They finish with some learning on how to stop procrastinating.

The reality is, these are all very important skills that we need to learn if we are to get our time management under control.

But it is only 10% of the whole process of taking back control of your day.

 

Why is it only 10%?

Because when you arrive at work the next day, you are all fired up, about how you will work your plan for the week, and you have your to-do list for today, all prioritised and ready to go.

You know that you must do number one on the list first, but then say, it’s going to take too long to do, so I will do these other quick things first and then have time to do it.

Meanwhile, your phone rings, a customer with a problem, you decide you have to go and do it, because the team don’t seem to get it right. Another team member pops their head in the door, boss, I need to talk with you right now about holidays.

The phone rings again, the bookkeeper says, that they have a client on the phone who is upset about their invoice and wants to talk with you now! A text message comes through, boss I am sick and can’t come into work today. That means you now have to immediately organise someone else to do the job that they were booked on this morning.

Does this sound familiar?

 

Before you know it, it is 5.30pm and you look at your to-do list, only a few minor things are done, you have been flat out all day, are tired, but can’t remember half the things you did. And, In the back of your mind, you are saying, I still have to do those important things.

And this happens day after day.

Why does this happen? You just did a time management course.

It is because the other 90% of skills you need to take back control of your day, were not taught in the course you did. It set you up for failure, by teaching you the planning part of time management. It didn’t teach you the personal or people management/leadership skills you need to get your day under control.

To get your day under control and manage your time well, you need to develop your personal skills, on how to stop your self from putting things off to later, how to know what distracts you, how to manage your day to reduce the effect of those distractions and how to communicate effectively with each person you speak with during the day, to enable you to get your message across the first time.

You also need to develop your people management/leadership skills of growing and developing your team, understanding how to market your business in todays environment, (this doesn’t mean you do the marketing. However, you must understand how it should be done, to ensure you can recruit the right people to do it), know how to recruit quality people, knowing how to create a sustainable business. These and other skills, help you to start reducing the amount of time you lose in your day through interruptions from your team and the people around you.

It is important, to develop skills of working with your team, customers and others, to reduce their impact on your day. Leaving you to focus on the important things you need to do to further grow and develop your business.

When my days fell apart, I had to search for courses to teach me how to take back control. It took several years of training and development, but I got better and better with everything I learned

I went back and reviewed all of the training I did over the years, and I identified the skills that had the greatest impact on my time management abilities. I then created what I believe is the most comprehensive time management course available today, covering all of the skills mentioned in this article and more. The Ultimate Time Management Program.

It is available as a self-paced online training program, which is available to anyone in the world, all you need is internet access. You can also combine the online program with a group coaching program or 1 to 1 program if that is what suits you best.

I have developed the program in two streams;

The Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners

The Ultimate Time Management Program For Childcare Centre, Owners, Directors and Managers

Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners – Release

Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners – Release

Would you love to get twice as much done each day and have time left over to enjoy doing the things you love to do?

 

At The Time Retriever, we have just released the most comprehensive online self paced time management coaching program available today.

The “Ultimate Time Management Program For Business Owners”.

This online time management coaching program will cover the skills you need to be aware of and develop, if you would love to get more control over your day.

There are 3 parts to the program;

Part 1 – Planning and Time Management

Part 2 – Personal Time Management Skills

Part 3 – People Management/Leadership Skills.

You may have done a time management workshop before and found that although you followed the training, you still could not get the things on your to do list completed, because you still kept putting things off “to a better time”, you were continually distracted by other things and the interruptions in your day just continued on as normal.

This 3 part course has been developed specifically for business owners and is a result of what I have had to learn in managing teams from 2 to over 200 and from the past 13 years of coaching business owners and teams.

It’s aim is to provide you with the skills of not only planning and doing a daily to do list, but helping you to develop your personal time management skills to stop putting things off and start reducing distractions in your day. You will also learn and develop some very key skills in people management and leadership, that will see you significantly reduce interruptions in your day.

As a result, you will start completing significantly more tasks in less time and have time left over to do the things you love to do.

This is the only time management coaching program of its type available. I have completed and reviewed many time management training programs available and none of these programs cover the range of key skills required to get your day under control, as this program does.

When you subscribe to the “Ultimate Time Management Coaching Program For Business Owners”, you will have unlimited and lifetime access to go back and review the program.

In Part 3 of the program, as we continue working with business owners, I will continue to add more lessons based around what we see and learn from these businesses. These lessons will provide you with support in day to day events that affect your ability to control your day.

In addition to the program, subscribers will receive a digital copy of the book “The Time Retriever”, free support through the program and access to the Ask The Time Retriever webinar sessions held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month and the Time Retriever Coaching Group on FaceBook.

If getting more control over your day is important to you, take advantage of our special introductory offer of $99, available until 31st July 2019. This is a saving of $100 on the regular pricing for this program.
