As leaders it is an obvious situation where you may get tied up with an array of activities. These activities may relate to issues, challenges which tend to shift your focus. As a result, you forget to focus on key job. Routine tasks can make you lose focus on the things you should be doing.
For the leader in you, on first Tuesday of November, we bring to you magical three key drivers to bring in more effectiveness and efficiency!
Encourage new ideas
This will not only enable your team to think in an extra-ordinary manner, but also take them to a new platform. Also ask the question are you making things better for your people or are you subtracting from your people? Make it an expectation of your employees that they bring in new ideas and alternative approaches by including it in their performance objectives. To ensure this is successful, add a method of measurement or transform it to performance measurement.
Slice your time effectively
It’ll motivate effectiveness and efficiency as it applies to time and allows you to achieve results. Like the path from initiation to final destination has various patterns of crests and troughs, success includes a journey that is taken one lesson at a time. Improved and refined, successful people move onward and forward in facing their next challenge. Pomodoro technique can be interesting tool to adopt.
Keep theme on mind
Although every day will be slightly different, create a rundown of what your ideal daily schedule should include with a different theme for each day. Every morning, before you check email, determine the three most important tasks to complete for the day. Prioritize crucial tasks over those that are less urgent. This approach will keep you focused throughout the day and help you avoid time-consuming distractions.
As leaders you can give theme to your day. This will offer incremental change and growth in your way of working. Our transformation/ change tool for leaders has done wonders. Just imagine if you can enlist 300 powerful and implementable actions into practice where would it take you and your team!
