ABOUT SEASON SEVEN:
In this season, we’re going to be talking about the timing of leadership, which is all about answering the question of when. Time is a precious resource, a nonrenewable resource. So, learning how to use time, leverage it, and turbo charge it, both in our life and in our career, can be a game changer.
DISCUSSION GUIDE FROM TODAY’S EPISODE:
- We discuss the calendar, which is a living and breathing tool.
- How are you allocating your time when someone requests some? Fight the urge to just give someone one hour.
- “The energy relationship with time.” Don’t let anyone steal your high productivity time.
- Intentionally block off “thinking” time on the calendar.
- Do not allow anyone else to manage your calendar!
- The power of uninterrupted time. Stop-start-stop-start is VERY disruptive.
- How to invest time with meetings. Need to know the goal of the meeting beforehand. Smart meeting agendas are critical.
- Do people really need to be in this meeting? Or are you just filling their 40-hour week?
- Different types of meeting have different time expectations. There are four types of meetings: Information-sharing, coordination, operational, or a strategic meeting (Hint: we need to spend more time with operational and strategic meetings).
- The Progressive-Mindset Model; how it is relevant to your timing tool set!
- The Accountability Conversation, and its role with timing.
- Another tool: The Six Thinking Hats, or parallel thinking (helps eliminate confusion in meetings).
- How to deal with introverts and extroverts in meetings, and how to bring the best out of both.
