Directors have told me for years that their biggest problem is time pressure. And wow, I know, because it was for me too. Time crunch is severe for directors. Problem number one: time — not enough. (Second biggest problem is — you guessed it — staff, crazy.) Let me solve your problems!
I briefly discuss the two big insights of time management gurus. However, neither reduces your time commitments, your duties, the root problem. My insight does. Of course, it is not a pink pill that will take away all pain immediately. You wouldn’t believe a promise like that. However, it is a solid insight, leading to some very practical and doable steps that will reduce your time pressure as a director — if implemented. Listen now.
