Very nice course, you can learn a lot of new thing

1 September 2016 01:53:07 PM

For management, we need to set a goal that may be broken down into a project, an action plan or a simple task list. Tasks need to be prioritized and the whole process is supported by a skill set that should include personal motivation, delegation skills, organization tools, and crisis management.

It is important to make sure that all of your goals unleash the power of the three P's:
Positive. Personal. Possible
The SMART Way
SMART is a convenient acronym for the set of criteria that a goal must have in order for it to be realized by the goal achiever.
Specific . Measurable. Achievable. Relevant . timed
It is important to prioritize your goals. Emotionalizing and visualizing your goal will help you create the desire to materialize it into your life.
The 80/20 rule, also known as Pareto’s Principle, states that 80% of your results come from only 20% of your actions.

spending your time on things that are important and not just urgent. To do this, you need to distinguish clearly between what is urgent and what is important:
The Urgent/Important Matrix:
Urgent And Important
Important, But Not Urgent
Urgent, But Not Important
Not Urgent And Not Important
Being productive each day. Having a daily plan and committing to it. (Personal Productivity Journal)
Highlight the top three items and focus on those first. Cross off items as you complete them. Items that are not completed should be carried over to the next page.
Write down the action list the night befor to Maximizing the Power of Your Productivity Journal.
have your productivity journal with you. Crossing off completed tasks.
If you postpone a task three times, it does not belong on your action list.
The Glass Jar: Rocks, Pebbles, Sand, and Water: following this rule , you you are able to achieve more in less time.
Chunk, Block, and Tackle
This time management technique is ideal for taking on overwhelming projects that are difficult to even plan to start them.
Ready, Fire, Aim!
Better to take a shot and see how close you were to the target.
Tackling Procrastination
Why We Procrastinate
There are many reasons why we tend to procrastinate, including:
• No clear deadline
• Inadequate resources available (time, money, information, etc.)
• Don’t know where to begin
• Task feels overwhelming
• No passion for doing the work
• Fear of failure or success
Eat That Frog!
"Your frog is the task that will have the greatest impact on achieving your goals, and the task that you are most likely to procrastinate starting. "If you have to eat two frogs, eat the ugliest one first!" : if you have two important tasks before you, start with the biggest, hardest, and most important task first.
Crisis Management
Handling a crisis : to move quickly and decisively, but carefully.
Then, you will want to gather and analyze the data.
• What happened?
• What were the direct causes? What were the indirect causes?
• What will happen next? What could happen next?
• What events will this impact?
• Who else needs to know about this?
The best approach is to identify the problem, decide on a solution, break it down into parts, and create a timeline.
Organizing Your Workspace

De-Clutter
To retrieve materials quickly, you’ll need an effective filing system
Managing Workflow

Although difficult at first, the practice can become habitual, and is made easier with the four Ds:
• DO: If a task can be completed in two minutes or less, do it immediately.
• DELETE: If the material is trash or junk, delete it. Or, if it’s something that you might use later on, file it, and move on.
• DEFER: If the task is one that can’t be completed quickly and is not a high priority item, simply defer it.
• DELEGATE: If a task is not yours to do, then delegate it.
to take the S.T.I.N.G. out of feeling overwhelmed about a task, follow these steps:
• Select one task to do at a time.
• Time yourself using a clock for no more than one hour.
• Ignore everything else during that time.
• No breaks or interruptions should be permitted.
• Give yourself a reward when the time is up.


Using Calendars
To manage all of the things that you have to do, it’s important to organize your reminders into a small number of calendars and lists that can be reviewed regularly.

Delegating made easy
by delegating effectively, you can hugely expand the amount of work that you can deliver.
choose the right tasks to delegate, identify the right people to delegate to, and delegate in the right way.

To Whom Should You Delegate?
Once you have decided to delegate a task, think about the possible candidates for accepting the task.

Things to think about include:
• What experience, knowledge, skills, and attitude does the person already have?
• What training or assistance might they need?
• Do you have the time and resources to provide any training needed?
• What is the individual’s preferred work style? Do they do well on their own or do they require more support and motivation? How independent are they?
• What does he or she want from his or her job?
• What are his or her long-term goals and interest, and how do these align with the work proposed?
• What is the current workload of this person? Does the person have time to take on more work?
• Will you delegating this task require reshuffling of other responsibilities and workloads?
Setting a ritual :
Ritualizing Sleep, Meals, and Exercise
These three items are essential to ritualize.


Meeting Management
Deciding if a Meeting is Necessary

If a formal meeting is necessary, divide your attendees into two groups: participants and observers. Let people know what group they belong in so that they can decide whether they want to attend. If you send out a report after the meeting, that may be enough for some people.

Using the PAT Approach
Purpose . Agenda .Time frame

Alternatives to Meetings

Instant Messaging and Chat Rooms


Some applications to try:

Teleconferencing
Most teleconferencing applications feature:
• Screen sharing
• Collaboration tools
• Interactive whiteboards
• Voice and text chat support
• Meeting recording capabilities (which can serve as minutes)


E-Mail Lists and Online Groups
