Managing Work Priorities
Your ability to prioritise tasks can make a huge difference to how you manage priorities at work. Knowing your priorities reduces stress, helps you focus, can improve productivity and time management, and even help with work-life balance as you create better boundaries for your workday.
Mastering the art of time management is key to your success as a leader. There are many techniques to support you with time management including 'to-do-lists', effective calendar use and keeping organised.
An important aspect of managing work priorities is managing expectations of yourself and those around. Understanding expectations and then managing them based on priorities is a key factor for success as a leader.
To achieve and manage work priorities you will need to be planned. The Big Rock theory discusses the concept of planning to complete your urgent, high priority tasks first, followed by your less urgent tasks.
