    How To Drive Your Team With One Simple Tool

    It’s OK to Close the Door

    Let everyone know what your closed door means.

    With all the push for open communication, and an inviting environment in the workplace, there is a lot of pressure for the first time leader to always be available.  I want to let you in on a secret that is not shared very often nowadays…It’s OK to close the door.  There is a lot of work for you to get done in the leadership role, even though you are managing those who are doing the work.   Some of my clients get themselves so overwhelmed and overworked because they never get...Continue reading

    A Simple Strategy to Stay Productive and Healthy at Work

    You will be amazed at what you can achieve in a working day.

    Do you find that your productivity varies from one day to the next? Do you sit down to get stuff done and then next thing you know hours have passed and the most important tasks are still outstanding? Some days I can fly through my tasks fast and then yet other days drag, and I seem to get constantly distracted (often caused by yours truly), leading to a longer “to do” list than when I started!  That was until I discovered the simple and effective Pomodoro Technique®.   Many...Continue reading

    Effective Time Management Strategies

    A guide to making each and every day the best it can be.

    By David Shaffer, Business Advisor & Executive Coach, David Shaffer Consulting LLC The time management dilemma many of us face on a daily basis is that there is far too much to do and not enough time or resources to meet the demands. Having any form of personal life-not a subject for discussion. And with the economy in such turmoil and the expectation of performance equating 'do more with less'-there simply is not enough time to go around.   If this sounds all too familiar, then hopefully...Continue reading
