Games and activities related to time management are relatively easier to find on this site if you do a search or click on the links to the right side of this post. However to get you started let me share with you two activities / games that can be used in your time management program
1. Make a list of 12 -15 tasks ( in random order) that a person has to do in a day. Some of these tasks can be personal tasks too. Circulate this list and ask participants to prioritize the order in which they will execute the tasks. Have a sharing on why most people had different priorities. This can be further exploded to include them identifying tasks that are Important/ Urgent etc.
2. You can (preferably post lunch) play any game with a time limit be it dumb charades or a one minute game etc. Draw attention to the pressure that builds up when the time limit is nearing. Also draw attention to the importance of taking a little time to plan before executing.
Your second request for some exercise for training on ethics is more challenging.
If you take a little effort and do a Google search you will be able to come up with Case studies on ethics. Alternatively you can create your own case study eg. You have been sacked from your job as part of a downsizing. You do not want to reveal this fact in any prospective job interviews for fear of being rejected. At the same time you are well aware that your job role demands a high level of integrity and you are uncomfortable with holding back the truth. How will you tackle this dilemma.
I would also suggest you share the video link to some select lectures by Sandel in the weblink www.justiceharvard.org If you listen to some of his lectures particularly the first one on The moral side of murder and the second one on Putting price tag on life you would be delighted to get some fantastic inputs. With a little imagination and a lot of spunk, I am sure you will be able to come up with some wonderful and interesting material for your audience.
