  3. 3. DEVELOPING LEADERS  Be, do, have...  Not just skills and results, but deep transformation of ‘self’  Leaders take the long-view  Ergo, if ‘reacting’, ‘responding’, ‘meeting hopping’, you aren’t leading
  4. 4. THE CRUX OF THE PROBLEM Creating long-term value requires an extraordinary level of ‘self-leadership’ The most important component of self-leadership is where you place your attention
  5. 5. OVERWHELM  100 – 200 emails per day  An equal number of other ‘incoming’ – phone calls, meeting actions, etc  Tracking commitments - yours and others’  ...  ...  Time to reflect, take a longer view, nurture new ideas
  6. 6. THE ESSENCE OF ‘GETTING THINGS DONE’ Managing agreements, not managing time A systematic approach, not a software system A practice, developed over time
  7. 7. THE GOAL OF GTD PRACTICE ‘Mind like water’ Mind clear Attention where it needs to be, not on ‘open loops’ Space for creative thoughts
  8. 8. BENEFITS OF GTD  Increased productivity & efficiency  Increased creativity & capacity for innovation  Improved effectiveness  Clearer communication  Improved line-of-sight on action items  Improved decision-making  Improved focus  Improved alignment on goals and projects  Improved work/life mix  Improved employee engagement  Improved employee satisfaction  Improved employee retention  And of course...reduced stress

  17. 17. ESSENTIAL TOOL #4 – WEEKLY REVIEW  Many lists become garbage dumps  They become untrustworthy – so you revert to keeping things in many places or in your head  Need to review the ‘red thread’ between mission, focus, projects and actions  Need to look at forward commitments – prepare for meeting, or report due, anniversary!  Need to get to your calendar before others do!
