3 Ways to Squash Burnout and Boost Productivity | Leadership | Scoop.it

Being productive isn’t just about quantity. And it’s not just about quality either. It’s about getting the most important, impactful things done efficiently, and to a high degree of quality, without getting hung up on perfection.

(From the article): Though I strongly encourage you to try the focus and prioritization techniques I found so helpful in improving my productivity, remember that there’s no hope of being truly productive if you’re burnt out. And feeling guilt-free about prioritizing my free time has made me better at everything I work on.

(From the article): Reading can also make you more effective in leading others. Reading increases verbal intelligence (PDF), making a leader a more adept and articulate communicator. Reading novels can improve empathy and understanding of social cues, allowing a leader to better work with and understand others — traits that author Anne Kreamer persuasively linked to increased organizational effectiveness, and to pay raises and promotions for the leaders who possessed these qualities. And any business person understands that heightened emotional intelligence will improve his or her leadership and management ability.

Great Mid Year Review Questions

Great Mid Year Review Questions | Leadership | Scoop.it

Mid year reviews are a like the half-time huddle of your performance Superbowl. If your company doesn’t require them, do them anyway. If your boss doesn’t have one planned for you, ask for one.

 

They’re great times to summarize, celebrate, challenge and inspire.

Really identify with #5:

 

Develop the squeezed middle: Once a business grows and a middle management tier emerges, these are the people who can make or break growth. They are submerged by the instructions from above and the demands from below and unless their skills are developed, the culture is collaborative and the direction clear, they will drown. Identifying the skill and personal development needs of these individuals to help them become future leaders can catapult your capacity to a new level.
