Master Time Management From Inside Out - Lolly Daskal | Leadership Development

Master Time Management From Inside Out - Lolly Daskal | Leadership Development | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Each one of us has 24 hours to our day, 18,400 unique minutes. How we master our time makes a big difference.
Time management is an art. It involves efficiency and productivity with a focus on our goals.
It is not about filling every moment with busy work, but rather organizing our time around what is important.
Successful leaders master their time from inside out:
Value time: Time is precious for each of us and it is a valuable resource.We should not spend it unwisely or give it away. Leaders who are masters of time know when to put a stop to activities that do not contribute to their purpose.

Designing at the speed of thought

Designing at the speed of thought | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Manufacturing and design are two of the rare industries where small companies have the ability to take on large corporations globally and vice versa. In this climate, the harsh realities of business are exposed and the importance of a competitive advantage is amplified. As a result, the ongoing competitive pressure drives organisations constantly to review their development processes and come up with new ways to innovate and create; at the end of the day, nobody wants to get left behind.

Blog | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

It is often said that people join organisations and leave managers.  How does one person have such an effect on someone else's engagement with an organisation when there are so many other factors to consider; culture, processes, values, goals etc…..  Talking to managers, it was clear that great managers can have a very powerful effect on staff engagement and performance, as can poor managers.  So what makes a great manager?

We asked over 500 managers from across the UK, to describe the best managers they had worked for. The top four characteristics of 'best managers' were:

  • respectful
  • supportive
  • empathetic
  • developed their staff

The overwhelming theme: best managers displayed good interpersonal skills and demonstrated care and concern for their staff. These managers also gave staff a sense of commitment that resulted in staff putting extra effort and time into their work.  The skills and attitudes of best managers were described as showing in trustworthiness, approachability, good listening skills, encouragement, humour, honest feedback and praise.

Navigating Change: A Leader's Role - Center for Creative Leadership

Navigating Change: A Leader's Role - Center for Creative Leadership | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
The effects of change are felt up, down, and around our organizations. Change can be seen as positive or negative, exciting or demoralizing, vital or unnecessary, easy or difficult-often all of the above.

The role of mid- and senior-level leaders in making change happen is critical. Managers of teams, projects, departments, and functions are in a unique and powerful position. These are the leaders who must translate the vision of change from the C-Suite to the ground troops, help direct reports navigate the emotions of change and transition, and influence change agents to generate alignment and commitment for the change effort to be successful.

How can managers become better equipped to steer their organizations and their people through change?
