Effectiveness - AVAILABLE VIRTUALLY OR IN-PERSON
The end result of an absence of efficiency isn’t just inefficiency, it’s regret. In order to work through the never-ending to-do list and juggle the multiple demands of others, we have to sort the urgent tasks from the merely important and make a habit of being efficient.
In this two-hour session, we will:
• Consider what makes getting things done difficult, including emotional and psychological barriers.
• Learn specific ways to adapt our approach to the task at hand.
• Look at strategies to prioritise tasks and make realistic, more effective plans of action.
• Discuss habits and techniques which can help us to beat procrastination, take tactical ‘shortcuts’ and reassess our overall aims.
• Learn how to make the most of feedback in order to become more effective.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
The effective employee is characterised by getting things done and making good use of time. They feel comfortable trusting their team and colleagues to do delegated work correctly. Setting priorities and giving clear instructions as well as taking and giving feedback come naturally for them.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
A lack of effectiveness can often be observed in junior employees who struggle to say “no”. More experienced employees might reveal their lack of Effectiveness by having difficulties in task delegation. Both groups might feel overwhelmed and overworked, relying on long hours and unnecessary micromanagement. A lack of effectiveness can end in exhaustion or burnout.
