Supervisor Series: Workflow Wonders
As a new supervisor, the first thing you may have noticed is that it appears there is simply too much to do to ever get it all done! Never fear ~ there are tips and techniques that can help you manage the workload, manage your time, and help your employees manage their time, too.
First on the list is delegation, which can be a lifesaver for the new supervisor. Do you have a system for delegating or do you just hand tasks to the first person walking by? When you learn to delegate effectively, you’ll not only be managing your own time, but you’ll be helping your employees manage theirs too. That helps create a motivating environment where employees are encouraged to grow.
We’ll discover some of the obstacles that tend to keep us from managing our own time – and what we can do to overcome those obstacles. Are you a procrastinator? You’ll discover how to overcome that procrastination – and when you shouldn’t even try. Do pesky interruptions take up the bulk of your day? Are you a victim of “marathon meeting madness”? There is help for each of these time-robbers – and the benefits will compound when you help your employees in these areas, too.
