Effective leading requires strong planning, time and task management, and organizational systems. Without a clear system to sort through the weekly chaos, you can easily lose sight of what you need to accomplish on your team. The cost of not having a plan for how you spend your limited “free” time is enormous. Your stakeholders suffer, you bottleneck your colleagues, you sleep too little, and you feel overwhelmed—a dreadful combination that doesn’t help anyone. Thankfully, with the intentionality of a Weekly Worksheet, it is possible to be an effective leader—and have a life!
This session is brought to you through a partnership with the The Together Group, United Way of Greater Houston and the Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at Rice University.
