 Here are some tips to successful time management success:

  • Take a time management class to better ways to organize, prioritize and schedule your day.
  •  Daily, set aside a specific periods of time to complete specific tasks, like your social media sites.
  •  Record your thoughts conversations and activities for a week.
  •  Before a phone call decide what the results you want at that time or can it be rescheduled for another time.   I seem to have a lot of unwanted sales calls during the day.
  •  Use online calendars to organize your work day.
  •  Schedule time for interruptions and take much needed time for meals.
  •  Remember to have a “Do Not Disturb” door sign for your family members, so you won’t be disturbed.

Leadership is finding ways to motivate your company and team members by focusing on practical skill-building technique in the areas of leadership, strategy, career development, communications, and customer service.

Accountability is an obligation of an individual or organization to account for its activities, accept responsibility for them and to disclose the results in a transparent manner.

Team members are quick to see this behavior when it occurs and trust can be quickly lost.  The main focus of this blog is on leadership qualities within a business and using social media is useful and beneficial in many ways.
