Last week I was teaching a course for managers about High individual and team performance, where I address 3 large areas that have to do with efficiency: Time Management, stress management and optimization of meetings.
As in previous editions of this course, I always find that managers let go of the short-termism and urgency. And above all, dedicated to resolving problems and solve hundreds of, that are emerging on the fly, and unexpectedly. This pattern in a total ineffectiveness, because it relies on a model of reactive behavior, instead of proactive.
Managers react and react, entire workday spend reacting and trying to solve problems. However, that prevents them from having time to design a better future, prevents them marked a motivating vision for a coherent, meaning and direction all actions and decisions, both yours and those of your team.
This lack of focus in the medium and long term, that blindness that involves thousands of tasks without asking why and why do, provides assurance for poor performance and high stress.
Thus, the first step is to start thinking in personal vision, vision of the Department or team. And we always mark vision long-term. 3 years would be a good time, although if we block due to lack of habit to think in the long run, let's at least one year. When we used our minds to think strategically, in the long run, we can move forward and asking ourselves longer term goals (3, 5 years old…)
We can choose two options: One is to continue solving problems and reacting to what comes, and the other is starting to create a space for reflection, goals for marcarnos, to design our future and that of our team. Select the first makes us mediocre chieftains, we choose the latter can become leaders of our environment.
