How The Successful Professional Manages An Unrelenting Workload
Professionals everywhere are struggling with the dilemma of unrelenting workloads. This new economy – fast moving, unpredictable, ever changing, uncertain and ambiguous – presents competing demands and conflicting priorities every day. You live with unfinished business and you never seem to be on top of things, able to be the professional you want to be.
The answer does not lie with improved time management strategies. It is much more complex than that. It lies in understanding, developing and enhancing the relationship between your workload and your power, capacity and energy to meet its demands.
If you have low power and capacity to manage your workload, you will be stressed, overwhelmed and even burnt out. High power and capacity means you have an excess to give 150%, to go the extra mile, to do the extra things that will enhance your professionalism and ensure your success.
This workshop will help you:
Get a better, more informed understanding of your actual workload – not just what your job description says you need to do, but all the other things you do in your work day – both tangible and intangible. It will help you analyse and prioritise them.
It will help you get a clearer understanding of your power and capacity to manage your workload – your personal and professional resources, your technical and soft skills, your strengths and weaknesses, your energy levels as well as the organisational resources offered to facilitate your work.
It will help you decide what to do with this new information and make a plan to change your existing situation. You have 2 choices – decrease your workload or increase your power and capacity. It will help you to do both.
Most importantly, it will help you learn how you can sustain yourself and maintain the new decisions you have made to manage your workload so that you don’t slip back into old habits, instead remain empowering and pro-active.
In short, this workshop will see you become much more effective in your work, more focused, and with time and energy to give to what you consider is important, rather than only what is urgent.
