Get More Work from Fewer People…Without Making Them Quit
If a mountain of deadlines and a staff that surfs the Internet for pleasure is keeping you awake at night, bring Laura in for guidance. Good leaders understand that time management is not about squeezing more into the day; it’s about you and your team spending time productively toward the accomplishment of your organization’s goals. Managing the clock isn’t the answer—teaching employees to manage themselves is. This innovative program discusses three key time management principles for leaders:
(1) Avoiding organizational “speed bumps,”
(2) Eliminating activities that waste time, and
(3) Modeling effective time management behavior.
- Use your administrative assistant more effectively.
- Improve process efficiencies between team members and other departments.
- Maintain an “open door” policy while guarding against “drop in” visitors.
- Communicate expectations clearly upfront and spend time ensuring joint understanding.
- Use Outlook to delegate and track assigned tasks.
- Stay focused on strategic direction without getting mired down in day-to-day operations.
- Help your staff stay focused on key tasks and understand what they should be working on.
- Free yourself from unnecessary meetings, calls, and interruptions.
