  1. Time Management (Part 1 of 2) | ManagerTools

    Time management is a fallacy, we like to say.

    Time doesn’t need you to "manage" it - it’s been getting along just fine without you for billions of years.

    We can’t manage time.

    But what we CAN manage is what we do with that time.

    And yet, the overwhelming evidence is that managers do NOT "manage what they do with that time."

    There’s a shocking CHASM between our behavior in this area and our knowledge of what to do.

    In fact, Mark recently blogged on how busy everyone says they are, which irritates him.

    He looks at their calendars, and there’s no EVIDENCE that they’re busy.

    There are vast swaths of unscheduled time!

    Peter Drucker, in the first prescriptive chapter of his seminal work, the Effective Executive, says it best (of course): "The output limits of any process are set by the scarcest resource.

    In the process we call "accomplishment", this is time … Of the other major resources, money is actually quite plentiful … People … one can hire.

    But one cannot rent, hire, buy or otherwise obtain more time."

    So, the question is, how can managers start to become more efficient about using the time that each of us has at our disposal?

    In fact, that’s a great way to state it:

    STOP disposing of your time!

    It’s not only your most precious resource, it’s also your most perishable!

    This cast will get you started doing just that.

  2. #109: 5 Management Lessons From Peter Drucker

    Peter Drucker is the OG of management.

    If you’ve seen or heard a great management or leadership lesson in the last 100 years, chances are it started with Drucker — and his book Managing Oneself is one that DC passed down to DG to revisit yearly.

    So on this episode of Seeking Wisdom, we’re breaking down five management lessons from Peter Drucker from his book "The Effective Executive: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Right Things Done."

    This book has stood the test of time and has everything you need as a manager to be able to grow and be an effective leader.

    As DC says on this episode: “It’s all in this book right here. You don’t need any other book. If you want to lead people, it’s all here."

  3. The Basics of Calendar Management (Part 1 of 2) | ManagerTools

    This cast describes the first of our recommendations about calendar management.

    We spend a lot of time talking to executive clients about how they spend their time, and how they manage their priorities through their calendars.

    Several times over the past couple of years we’ve talked about how when we start coaching an executive, we ask for two things immediately: an accounting of what they consider their priorities, and a print out of their calendar.

    They almost NEVER match, except with CEOs and COOs.

    If you’re a thinking manager, you’re not asking, "why?" but rather, "what can I do to avoid that?"

    There are a few simple rules that get most effective executives (thank you Mr. Drucker) started off well, and they start with thinking a week at a time.

  6. Time Management (Part 2 of 2) | ManagerTools

    Today, we cover the second in a two-part series of podcasts on Time Management.

    If you’re new to the show or you didn’t listen to last week’s podcast, it’s probably worth while going back and listening to the previous show first.

    Otherwise, you’ll be joining the conversation half-way through and we all know how comfortable that feels.

    :-(

    We recommend 4 1/2 steps to analyzing your use of time

    Roughly Assess Your Time - absolutely no materials other than pen and paper allowed!

    Capture Your Priorities

    Do a Rough Analysis

    (part b, only for the truly committed) - Do a "Drucker" Analysis

    Put Your Number One Priority on Your Calendar

    That’s it!

    We walked through steps 1 and 2 last week, today we cover the remainder.

  8. How to Get Real About Time Management, With CEO Tiffany Dufu

    This week, we’re learning how to improve on our time management skills with help from Tiffany Dufu, Founder and CEO of The Cru. And spoiler alert: effective time management is not about time-blocking, to-do lists, or the Pomodoro Technique. Instead, it’s more about how to get clear about your priorities, how to utilize your calendar to get things done, and the questions to ask yourself when debating over which tasks are most important.

  10. The Basics of Calendar Management (Part 2 of 2) | ManagerTools

    This is the second of our casts that describe our recommendations about calendar management.

    Last week, we covered some basics of calendar management, the most important of which was that effective managers think about managing their priorities a WEEK at a time - thinking in terms of weeks is the most effective way to stay strategic, and therefore effective.

    We then covered our first, and perhaps most surprising point - Family First.

    Simple in practice … schedule time for your family ON YOUR CALENDAR first.

    And then give THAT commitment the same level of focus as your other priorities.

    This week, we cover our remaining points relative to managing your calendar …

    Schedule time for email

    Nail down your strategic objectives

    Block out One on Ones

    Schedule time for a weekly network building lunch
