Just because we’re doing a lot more, it doesn’t mean we’re getting a lot more done!
It can be hard to be a leader in today’s hurried and constantly changing business workplace. A leader is pulled from pillar to post, working all the hours God sends and is expected to know everything, be everything and do everything, all at the same time!
Does this sound familiar? Of course it does!
But even if you know everything, be everything and do everything … that doesn’t mean you should.
Effective leaders know that deciding what not to do is as important as deciding what to do.
Most leaders, executives, bosses, managers run into trouble when they think they need to be a “fix it all”, but, in all honesty, it’s impossible – and very poor leadership!
Many call this type of leader “the fixer”. The fixer, is someone who needs to step in all the time and show they can do it all. They are constantly telling people what to do and how to do it, without even waiting to see if people understand what they are saying, or asking of them.
So, how do we optimise the qualities of “the fixer” within ourselves?
Knowing how to optimise “the fixer” qualities will give you a lot more time to get all the important things done within your remit as a leader.
Recent programmes we’ve run show leaders finding an extra two hours a day (on average) by deciding, wisely, what not to do. The improvement in results has been breath-taking.
- An organisation in the engineering industry saw their sales increase from £800,000 per month to £1,200,000 compared to the previous year.
- Another organisation in the telecommunications sector saved £10 million per year … and increased productivity by 62%
- An organisation in the automotive industry saw the highest sales for 22 years – (with no new model launches)
