In last week's episode I caught up with Julie Hyde. We talked about her book ‘Busy’, staff recruitment and retention and what shapes team success.
Today I talk about the label of I’m busy and its communication impacts.
All projects have busy periods to meet deadlines and at times react to unforeseen issues. We attend meetings, we have presentations to prepare for, there are hundreds of emails, the phone rings continuously…that’s it a typical day of project life.
You are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know how to get on top of things. I’ll share what I have learnt and how to turn chaos to calm.
JC Three Tips
- Plan your week ahead
- Minimise distractions
- It’s ok to say no
My favourite Julie quote from our conversation ‘team success is three things – culture, leadership, diversity’.
