Every leader I talk with, coach or train tells me the same thing. They all have lots (too much) to do — more than they did six months or a year ago — and there is no end in sight.
And as a leader, the challenges of managing our time are even greater because we’re leading others and thereby helping them to manage their time!
We must find time to not only get our work done but also coach our team members, communicate with multiple groups across the organization, maintain team dynamics, find time for one-on-one meetings and more.
The reality is that we are busy, we have full plates, we are balancing home and work life and also dealing with the demands of leadership. We don’t want to disappoint anyone — but something has to give.
Do you feel helpless to the endless flow of emails, voicemails, meetings and projects – that all demand your immediate attention?
Does it feel like you’re constantly swimming upstream — torn between your own work and the demands of your team?
Then it’s time to change your tactics and take control. We only have 24 hours a day, so you can’t waste time by wishing you had more of it. You need to focus on making the most of the time you have — and helping your employees to do the same.
Possessing solid time and priority management skills is critical to your success, and every minute you spend honing those skills is worth it.
In the Getting More (of the Right Things) Done module, we will focus on being more productive. Not just individually (though there will be plenty there), but how we prioritize the right work given our role as a leader and the multiple roles we play – and the subsequent priorities we must juggle. This will be a highly practical program, and you will leave with a better plan and process for getting more (of the right things) done.
The Learning Focus of This Skillset Module
Specifically, you will learn:
- The four pivots of productivity
- The four questions that will help you be more productive
- At least five specific things you can do each day to be more productive as a leader
There is no such thing as time management – there is only choice management. And together, we will learn how to make the right choices so that we can get more of the right things done this month and going forward!
What’s Included in This Skillset Module
Here’s How Much Time You Will Need
Naturally, the more time and focus you put into learning, the more you’ll get out of it. But we also understand the constraints of a busy leader so we built the program to be consumed in short chunks.
The Skillset Spotlight webinar is a short 45 minutes and like everything in the module, is available on-demand in our members only portal so that you can consume when you make the time in your calendar.
The Mindset TV videos are 3 – 5 minutes and are also available in the portal so you can revisit and review the training materials at any time.
Whether you choose to go through the materials all at one time, or you want to slow things down and work on your schedule, the choice is yours.
Want a Little More Accountability?
Habits build daily. And in order to be a successful leader, the more we make learning a habit and a seamless part of our daily lives, the more effective, productive and successful we will be.
