The Frenzy

Task InundationThe frenzy thwarts leadership. The frenzy represents the many demands imposed on leaders by customers, superiors, subordinates, and the bureaucratic demands of the organization.These distractions take away from core leadership functions such as focusing, planning, communicating, coordinating, and educating.

Leaders inundated by the frenzy primarily work IN, running around like “chickens without heads.” Contrast this with real leaders who mindfully step back and “shed” distractions and interruptions to work ON their organizations, building better systems and empowering people.

Please share how you have risen above the frenzy to better manage your time and truly make a difference.
