Make time work for you: Key Concepts in Time Management

Do you find yourself driving to work many mornings with the motivation and ambition to meet your deadlines, but inevitably something crops up! There’s a staff absence and extra appointments to cover, or too many urgent meetings or home visits required (thereby saturating an already over- stretched team), or something unforeseen has happened to one of your own clients.

How do you overcome these difficulties….is it possible to maintain control over your time with so many unexpected interruptions?

LEad Many Countries, One Water by Chris Tobin
Artwork by Chris Tobin, commissioned by LEAD to create an original piece of art that reflects who we are and what we do. Titled “Many Countries, One Water”, the artwork represents the diversity and the connectedness across the communities in which we work. Reproduced with permission and gratitude.


LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
