Finding the Time to Be a Leader
With paperwork, regulations, putting out fires, and never-ending to-do lists, how can leaders ever find the time to actually lead? And with more pressures and stresses than ever before, leaders often feel like they've completely lost control of their careers and futures.
To succeed, we leaders must gain control of our time (and our goals and careers and futures). But it's not easy, because the scarcest resource a leader has is time (not money or people or influence). Time. And it's why the top frustrations of leaders typically include: not having enough time, struggling to balance priorities, not being proactive enough and reacting to everyone else's priorities and spending too much time doing work that someone else should be doing.
In this event, we'll share the best practices for leaders to gain control of their time so they can take full control of their careers and individual successes.
