5 Minute Leadership Q&A – Making Time to Think
Posted on November 17, 2015
We are always getting asked loads of questions from people we work with about some of their common leadership challenges, so we thought we’d put together a series of short videos with some really practical quick wins to try.
This is the first one so we wanted to start with one of the questions we get asked the most from leaders at all levels regardless of industry or organisation.
Let us know if it helps, and any other topics you’d like us to cover in our future leadership Q&A’s
Hope you enjoy
Martin & Elizabeth
Timely reminder there guys and some useful tips. Ive just come out of a really busy time at work and I was only thinking, this morning, that I need to get back in that helicopter!. Lovely to see and hear the two of you. Thank you .
Thanks Lisa! Glad you found it useful. Yes that old helicopter needs flying regularly – goes rusty otherwise ;-)) Lovely to hear from you too.
Hi folks, firstly – congratulations on your ?first? video clip – good effort 🙂
For me, the first point you make about NOT switching on the laptop/email/bbry etc and to physically and mentally give yourself that “pause for breath” before launching into the day is a great point, and one that to be honest most of us fail on. So… I’ve reminded myself again, and thanks for sharing, Guy
Thanks Guy – lovely to hear from you! Its genuinely a strategy that Elizabeth and I try and use every day. To be honest Elizabeth is better and more disciplined at it than I am,.. But don’t tell her I said that 😉
At last I made some time to watch your video!!! Simple, common sense practical advice, so important to factor in thinking/reflection time, without it how do we move forward? What about ‘Motivation’ as your next video post? Self motivation and motivation for others. Keep up the great work.
Thanks Ian – you are so right about the importance of thinking/reflection time, but from my own personal experience, often easier said than done! Great idea re the subject for our next video post , Elizabeth and I will get on it…
