How to Set Up Effective Time Management Strategies
Why do time management strategies matter?
Poor time management doesn’t just make our work more difficult—it can also lead to increased stress. Of 1,049 Americans surveyed by Gallup, 41% feel they don’t have enough time to do what they want, and a similar proportion feel anxious about it.
With such limited hours and seemingly unlimited amounts of work, time management strategies are an important tool for improving employees’ productivity and focus. But it’s not only individuals that can benefit.
Global consulting firm McKinsey notes how organizations are beginning to play more of a role in how employees hone their time management skills: “Time management isn’t just a personal-productivity issue over which companies have no control; it has increasingly become an organizational issue whose root causes are deeply embedded in corporate structures and cultures.”
And leaders really can have an influence on how well employees manage time—85% of people who identified themselves as being effective time managers said they received support in scheduling and allocating time, according to McKinsey. By training your team in time management strategies, developing communication techniques, and engaging them in work that speaks to their strengths, organizations can better tap into employees’ potential.
