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 …
