Time management coach
What is a time management coach?
A time management coach is a professional who helps you understand your personal way of thinking and acting to help you create your personalized time management system.
Time management coaches help clients learn how to prioritize tasks, set realistic goals, and work smarter instead of harder.
The coach does not impose a time management model but instead helps you become aware of how you use your time, use the emotions you experience to your advantage, and implement better habits.
How does a time management coaching session work?
First of all, the main objective of time management coaching must be defined.
Then, based on this objective and the specific difficulties encountered by the client, the coach helps the coachee to:
- become aware of what prevents him/her from progressing in his/her life
- identify and eliminate unproductive habits and create new, more productive ones
- overcome procrastination
- identify his/her motivations
- use emotions to modify certain behaviors
Working on all of these aspects allows the client to overcome his or her weaknesses by creating a customized personal organization system.
At the end of each session, the client commits with the coach to take the actions he/she wishes to take to improve his/her productivity and find a better balance in his/her life.
The following session will allow us to assess the efficiency of these actions, face new difficulties, modify if necessary the initial strategy, celebrate the progress made, and plan the new actions to be implemented.
What causes poor time management?
Poor time management is often caused by stress, which leads to procrastination. Procrastination is when we put off doing something until later because we feel overwhelmed or stressed out about it. Procrastinating is common because we don’t want to do something we know we need to do. Poor time management is also caused by a lack of organization. People who don’t keep track of their tasks and deadlines tend to lose focus and end up doing things out of order.
What are some good time management skills?
Time management is about managing your time so that you use it effectively. It involves planning ahead, prioritizing tasks, delegating responsibilities, setting goals, tracking progress, and evaluating results.

Before discovering all the advantages of coaching in personal and professional organizations, it is important to define what time management at work and in private life really is.
Time management and work priorities
Managing time and priorities at work means creating coherence between the values of your company and the goals of your business.
If the time management methods do not bring you the expected results, it is because there is a gap between the:
- principles that underpin your company’s existence
- results that your company wants to achieve
- actions you implement
Time and priority management coaching, allows you to create or recreate consistency between these three essential elements for the success of your business.

Managing time and priorities in private life
Managing time and priorities in your private life allows you to align your goals with your personal values.
If you cannot organize yourself every day, it is because you are not aware of your most important values.
As a result, you are often overloaded with commitments and dissatisfied.
Time management methods and tools have poor results because you do not know the keys to your personal growth.
Coaching for time and priority management allows you to:
- identify your most important values
- set the goals necessary for your success
- act effectively to create a fulfilling and meaningful life
Why time management skills are important?
Personal organization is a skill that is becoming increasingly essential in the personal and professional world.
If you want to create a life worthy of your ambitions and carry out projects that are really important to you, you cannot neglect your personal organization.
This applies to both your professional and your private life.
Contrary to what one might think, the main objective of personal organization is not to achieve more by implementing time and process optimization strategies.
The main purpose of this tool is to allow you to live better by achieving what you really need and want to achieve.
Effective personal organization, therefore, requires this paradigm shift of organizing your agenda to achieve what makes you happy and gives you a real sense of accomplishment.
This means that good time management is nothing more than good management of emotions and that the management of emotions requires an awareness of your values.
If you are not aware of your values, you do not know how to prioritize your actions and therefore act without real change.
Understanding your values allows you to become aware of possible internal conflicts that can negatively affect your effectiveness and well-being.
Solving these conflicts frees your physical and mental energies to improve your efficiency and bring you closer to your goals.
Personal organization also requires an awareness of your daily habits.
Becoming aware of how your decisions and actions affect your effectiveness allows you to implement the changes necessary for your success.
Once you are aware of your values, your emotions, your thoughts, your habits, and your behaviors, you can strengthen your personal organization through time management tools and methods.
Time management skills are important for several reasons because they allow you to:
- accomplish what is important to you in less time and at the same time, they prevent you from wasting time on activities that are unimportant or have a negative impact on you
- keep your motivation at the highest levels because you constantly see your progress and you are consistently getting closer to your goals
- greatly reduce your stress level at work and in your private life and reduce the risk of burnout and many other stress-related illnesses
- experience a sense of control over your life and this helps to strengthen your self-esteem and self-confidence
- create your ideal life because you focus your time and energy on what matters most to you
