#30DaysOfSummaries – Day 5

30DayChallenge-Jan-5-Blog

This first week of our #30DaysOfSummaries will be all about leadership and how to be an efficient leader.

Ask yourself throughout the day: Is this the best use of my time? If it’s not, move on. What takes too much of your time?

    Efficient and Effective was a phrase told to me 20 years ago that I still use today. Laura Stack does a great job of explain how Executives should manage their teams as the old ways of a dictator are long gone. Good Read!

  2. Laura Stack’s three “T’s” of leadership – “strategic thinking, team focus and tactical work” – complements Drucker’s seminal message on effective leadership. Though this is only Day 4, I found this particular summary to be most impactful. The organizing rubric for 12 critical management goals offers an evidence-based approach to management innovation. In fact, I plan to implement many of the tactics explained in the summary towards a more cohesive enterprise plan at work. Never a static document, concentrating on results, leveraging resources and strengths, prioritizing tangible work-related tasks and making results-oriented decisions offers a scaffolding for designed thinking. Better project management enhances the likelihood that the TEAM manages the scarcity of time most effectively; thereby nurturing a sense of clarity in focusing on doing the right things.
    This thought-provoking summary is both practical; allowing for analysis and concepts to be apply to real-world problem-solving.
    Excellent read!
