Leadership Tip: Organization is key – use Monday to set your framework for the week.
The best way to take charge of your work week – especially on a Monday is to set the tone for the entire week. Spend your first hour Monday morning laying out your weekly framework instead of answering e-Mails or phone calls. Not only will it prevent you from being overwhelmed from the get-go, it will give you a sense of accomplishment before you get started and allow you to prioritize your time appropraitely.

While dining with a colleague yesterday, I expressed my discontent in an individual who required micromanagement – much to […]
We all spend a lot of time working to develop and hone in our leadership skills. We seek to lead leaders and have them tear down walls in the process. Yet, in all the bustle and confusion of working to be successful at these characteristics, I find many tend to overlook one of the most […]
