A step-by-step planning process helps you prioritise high-value strategic activities over those that are merely urgent.

Questions you can ask yourself:

  • Am I getting trapped in humdrum day-to-day activities instead of acting strategically?

  • Have I assessed what my key strategic priorities are? Are they expressed as meaningful, proactive, well-defined, high-impact goals in each of my most important roles?

  • Have I adopted a step-by-step planning process that enables me to assess the value I’m adding and where my time and energy shouldn’t be invested?

  • What conversations are needed with key stakeholders to reset expectations and communicate my larger directives?

  • Have I identified a sensible operating rhythm for my role?
