Time Management for the Time-Challenged

Powerful Strategies to Get Your Life Back

Are you managing your time, or is it managing you? The average employee spends 11 minutes on a task before encountering a distraction—and for those who are adjusting to remote work, the situation may be even worse. 

With so many responsibilities, interruptions, and stress, it’s easy to find yourself feeling disorganized and unfocused, suffering from burnout, overlooking details, and missing deadlines.
While the average “time management” course focuses on squeezing more activity into a single day, this virtual learning experience takes a different approach. 

We’ll teach you to identify the activities that add the most value to your organization and career--while ruthlessly outsourcing, delegating, or cutting the rest.

Relationship Management

How to Influence, Engage, and Connect with the People Who Impact Your Work 

No matter what type of work you do, relationships with people are essential to getting it done. This is never truer than in project management, where teams and leaders are held accountable for clearly defined outcomes.
 
But many times, even highly skilled project managers still struggle to productively engage with difficult or “high-maintenance” stakeholders. Not only can this compromise project results—it can also make your project feel draining. The good news is that whether you consider yourself a “people person” or not, there are targeted techniques you can learn to effectively build powerful and dynamic relationships with stakeholders. 

This virtual series is designed to help project managers and non-project managers alike improve their business relationships to achieve better business results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual Persimmon event like?
We know you’ll love our virtual learning experiences! Just like a physical classroom, you’ll see and speak to your instructor, participate in discussions and small group activities, and follow along in a writable PDF workbook so you can take notes and reference them later. Your instructor will also be available to you between sessions and after the course to answer questions, PLUS you’ll get access to electronic copies of all the documents we recommend you use to keep your projects on track. 
Do I have to have the title “project manager” to benefit from the classes? 
Absolutely not! Our beginner's and intermediate courses are designed with a wide variety of professionals in mind. However, our advanced classes are tailored to professional project managers with at least 5 years of experience.

Yes. Persimmon recognizes that not every organization is the same. That’s why we love working with our customers to develop and build custom Project Management courses to address your unique needs.
