Being a leader and producing can be difficult at times. Here are a few tips:

Helpful Info

  • Share Information

    We know no one can do it as well as you can, BUT you need to delegate to give yourself time to complete tasks more appropriate for your level.
  • Adjust Your Style

  • Set Small Milestones
    If you can't match last year's numbers, set milestones that can be reached.

    When your people see you putting in extra hours, they are inspired to jump in and follow your lead.
  • Focus Your Time
    It's the old 80-20 principle. Focus the majority of your time and attention on the 20% of your people and projets that generate 80% of your results.
