Time management

Time management is about getting things done. You cannot manage time. You can, however, manage the way you use your time – you can determine what you do with your time, just like you can determine how you use your money.

Managing your time refers to planning what you’ll do with the time you have available so that you’ll have enough invested time and enough time to spend. It also means planning exactly what you are going to do when it’s time to invest time: in which activities will I use my time? The goal is always the same: achieving the ability to direct energy into those things that matter so that they would get done.

See the person behind the actions

An Organization is just a concept; there are only people & personalities. We often forget when speaking to other people that their behavior is guided by their experiences.

Added value comes from interaction, and interaction is always a human activity that comes from experience. The first person you need to see is yourself.

  • What are you satisfied and dissatisfied with in your life?
  • What kind of feedback are people giving you?
  • Where can you find new directions and ideas for what you could become?
  • What you should do more, what you should do less, and what you should quit altogether?

Five Ways to Influence with Coaching

Influencing another person’s thinking and emotions can sometimes feel difficult, cruel or even manipulative.
