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.

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?
