Time management coaching in Melbourne: boost your productivity
Our time management coaching Melbourne is a one-on-one coaching program designed for busy people who cannot afford a full day away from the office. It is also perfect for those who have already tried traditional time management training seminars and yet still struggle with implementing strategies that work for them and their unique situation.
Our time management coaching will help you or anyone in your team improve personal performance and effectiveness through a series of one-on-one coaching sessions. You will develop more efficient and effective work habits, which will help you cope with ever-increasing work commitments and stress. Working together gives us the ability to understand the way you work and the challenges you face. As a result, we will find ways to improve your productivity that ‘standard’ programs will often miss. The one-on-one format also allows us to adapt the content we work on to your particular needs and challenges.
One of the greatest challenges of many time management programs is creating behaviour change that ‘sticks’. It is so easy to drop back into bad old habits. However, we’ve found our time management coaching overcomes this hurdle. Because we can work on time management challenges particular to your circumstances, we can identify and help implement practical, pragmatic ideas that are much more likely to last over time. Further, we can create a level of accountability that is not possible when you undertake a traditional time management training program.
How time management training Melbourne works
We can set up a program with a fair degree of flexibility. We can schedule a personalised program around the specific needs and availability of you or your people. The length of the program can vary but is typically three to five individual coaching sessions of between sixty and ninety minutes each. These will be spread out over a two- to three-month timeframe.
All coaching is on the job and solutions focused, entirely centred on the participant achieving success and personal growth in agreed areas. The coaching will sometimes take place at the person’s desk or in their office. Working closely together and in your work situation, we can help remove hidden barriers to improved performance. Under guidance, you will develop clear goals and action plans aimed at achieving immediate, sustainable results.
Each participant receives their own Personal Productivity & Time Management Coaching Workbook. This contains comprehensive information and strategies that we will work through in each session. This workbook will serve as a resource long after the coaching sessions are finished.

For any coaching assignment to be successful, it is imperative that confidentiality between the Coach and the Coachee is respected at all times. Once this trust is broken, even if well intentioned, then the commitment to the process is difficult to maintain. Accordingly, we are fully committed to respecting the utmost confidentiality at all times. LCS will comply with the International Coach Federation’s code of ethical conduct at all times and will not divulge the detail of the coaching discussions with anybody else, without the express agreement of the Coach.
