Make A Commitment To Yourself & Your Team To Participate Fully.
We know that you are busy and we also know that a lot of your 'busy' comes from all of the crises and
demands that show up as part of the Urgent & Important Cycle. So we suggest you look at this 30 Week Program as work that is important but not urgent.
Approached with this mind-set, we know that you will discover that for every moment you spend doing important but not urgent work, you will
significantly reduce the amount of time you spend fighting fires and dealing with the tyranny of the urgent and important.
So make this a priority. If you do, we can guarantee that you will not
only upgrade your own skills, but over the course of the next 30 weeks you will increase your personal productivity and effectiveness by as
much as 10% to 25%. You will also develop stronger and more supportive relationships with your team members and contribute significantly to making your organization not only more successful, but
a model against which all other teams and organizations in your company and your industry will be proud to measure themselves.
Look for Opportunities.
As you execute this 30 Week Personal Productivity & Skills Development
Program Be alert to the hundreds of opportunities that will come up each day to practice the topic, to observe someone else working with it, to give feedback or reminders to another team
member regarding your experience and to make suggestions regarding ways this particular skill or theme can enhance your team's performance and effectiveness.
Be Open to New Experiences.
During the next 30 weeks you will have terrific opportunities to see things with new eyes and to experiment with a variety of new and useful strategies. We encourage you to approach this
time as an adventure in learning and as an opportunity to receive some support in fine tuning and expanding your repertoire of skills. If you do this you will greatly accelerate and
amplify this experience.
have to wait for the end of a project or task to acknowledge
and celebrate your accomplishments. Instead, if you take the
time along the way to acknowledge your gains you end
up motivating and encouraging participation and creating
an atmosphere of greater collaboration, support and satisfaction.
Keeping a personal journal or 'gains book' while you participate
in this 30 week program will help you to do this. Keep
track of your gains, accomplishments, observations and
suggestions on how to expand the theme or implement it more
effectively. Use it to capture recommendations and feedback
you may have for your buddy or your support group. Record
acknowledgments you may want to give to others and specific
learnings you may want to share with your team. In short,
this journal or 'gains book' will be a valuable record of
your process and an excellent reference source that you can
consult from time to time to help keep the experience
and the learning fresh for you.
