An estimated $450 billion are lost annually due to people not being immersed in the task at hand.
So what is a person to do? Here’s our top tips for maximizing your time based on your own thinking and
behaving preferences. Enjoy the series!
Social Thinking (represented by the color red) is:
- Socially Aware and
- Intuitive about People
This type of thinking excels at connecting with others, facilitating situations and
weighing all sides equally. The social mind frequently knows how to help disparate people interact with each other.
"Whose strengths can I leverage to help me accomplish my goal?"
Consult a friend! Don’t spend time on a task that someone else can do quickly and efficiently. Only do what only you can do!
- Ask for feedback numerous times along the way to ensure you’re headed in the right direction.
- Leaders can’t be all things to all people. Follow the Pareto Principle - invest your time with the top 20% of your people who will accomplish 80% of what needs to get done.
- Collaborate and divide up projects into manageable chunks.
- End a meeting by ensuring everyone knows what next steps are, that they feel good and that they have everything they need to get started!
