  3. 3. Long term vision • Compass and clock – Efficiency and effectiveness. • Maslow’s need hierarchy. • Locke’s goal setting theory. • Treasure mapping. • Chunking. • Backward goal setting.
  4. 4. Maslow’s need hierarchy
  5. 5. Locke’s goal setting theory • In 1990, Dr Edwin Locke and Latham published their seminal work, "A Theory of Goal Setting and Task Performance." The five characteristics of successful goal setting are – Clarity. (SMART) (Specific, Time bound) – Challenge. (SMART) (Realistic and relevant) – Commitment. (SMART) ( Agreed). – Feedback. (SMART) (measurable). – Task complexity (SMART) (Attainable)
  6. 6. Treasure mapping • Clarify your SMART goals – long term goals. – Mid term goals. – Short term Goals. • Use visualization to remind these goals.
  7. 7. Backward goal setting • Write down your ultimate goal. • Ask yourself what milestone you need to accomplish just before that, in order to achieve your ultimate goal. • What do you need to complete before that second-to-last goal? • What do you need to do to make sure the previous goal is reached? • Continue to work back, in the same way, until you identify the very first milestone that you need to accomplish.
  8. 8. Chunking • Eating the elephant. • Break It Down. • Henry Ford, credited with designing the first production line, once maintained, “Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
  9. 9. Prioritization • Pickle jar theory. • Pareto’s principle. • Eisenhower Matrix.
  10. 10. Pickle Jar theory • Big rocks. • Small rocks. • Pebbles. • Sand. • Water.
  11. 11. Pareto’s Principle
  12. 12. Eisenhower Matrix Managing time effectively, and achieving the things that you want to achieve, means spending your time on things that are important and not just urgent. – Important activities have an outcome that leads to the achievement of your goals. – Urgent activities demand immediate attention, and are often associated with the achievement of someone else's goals.
  13. 13. 1. Crisis management, Deadline driven producers. 2. Planning, Prevention, le arning, exercise, relatio nships. 3. Day dreaming, procrastinati on, TV. 4. Phone calls, visitors, small talks.
  14. 14. Scheduling Scheduling is the process by which you look at the time available to you, and plan how you will use it to achieve the goals you have identified
  15. 15. Scheduling • Activity logs. • To do list. – ABCDE Method. – Leak proof Clustering. • Not to do list. • False deadline strategy – Parkinson’s Law.
  16. 16. Activity logs • Activity Logs are useful tools for analysing how you use your time. • To keep an Activity Log, set up the following column headers: – Date/Time. – Activity description. – How I feel. – Duration. – Value (high, medium, low, none).
  17. 17. To do list • To-Do Lists are prioritized lists of all the tasks that you need to carry out. • By keeping a To-Do List, you make sure that your tasks are written down all in one place so you don't forget anything important.
  18. 18. ABCDE Method 1. A – Must do. 2. B – Should do. 3. C- Nice to do. 4. D – Delegate. 5. E - Eliminate
  19. 19. Leak proof Clustering • The activity of organizing and assembling a group of tasks that have something in common. • For example, tasks might be grouped together because they’re all small, requiring little time and/or effort. • Gathering together documents that need to be photocopied and copying them all at the same time is an example of clustering. So is returning all phone calls • during the same hour or researching several topics at the same time.
  20. 20. Not to do list • Author Michael LeBoeuf offers a fascinating idea to create a “not-to-do” list which includes – All low-priority items. – To be delegated. – Minimal consequence.
  21. 21. Parkinson’s law • Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion. • False deadline strategy.
  22. 22. Delegation • Myths about delegation. • One minute manager. • Situational leadership model. • Direction of delegation.
  23. 23. Five myths of delegation • I must do it myself to shield the company from mistakes. • It’s quicker to do it myself. • I’d prefer to retain tasks I enjoy. • If I delegate, I’ll lose touch with the details, and with my current contacts. • Nothing less than my level of perfection will suffice.
  24. 24. One minute manager • One minute goals. – Teach the Task. – Demonstrate the Steps Yourself. – Elicit Questions as You Go. – Let Learners Demo and Play Back • One minute praising. – Don’t Interrupt to Correct Errors • One minute reprimands. – Set Mutual Checkpoints. – Create Standard Tracking Methods. – Provide Access as Needed. – Assign and Announce Authority
  25. 25. Situational leadership by Hersey and Blanchard
  26. 26. Direction of delegation
  27. 27. Improve concentration • Chronos and Kairos. • Tips to improve concentration. • Avoid multitasking. • Flow model.
  28. 28. Tips to improve concentration. • Find your prime time. • Environment – Make sure that you're comfortable . – Shut out distractions as much as possible. • Nutrition. – Drink water. – Eat breakfast. • Take short breaks. • Switch between high- and low-attention tasks
