    Time Management is Pain Management

    Time Management is Pain Management

    Have you ever told yourself that “you just don’t have enough time?”
    In this week’s episode of The Manager Track podcast, we’re going to talk about why time management is actually a lot more about pain management than task management. 
    I made this episode to help you:
    Build awareness on how you spend your time and what you focus onOwn your decisions and make changes that align with your prioritiesFollow through and execute on your decisions, even though doing so might feel uncomfortable.A good number of my clients work on these topics and it's amazing to see what they can do when they get intentional with their time management! I hope you can apply these to your (work)life and truly take ownership of your decisions around how you spend your time!

    The Risks of Delaying Your Leadership Training

    The Risks of Delaying Your Leadership Training

    Ep. 111 - According to research published in HBR involving 17,000 managers, the average manager received their first leadership training 10 years after they began supervising. That's crazy if you think about it. There is no other job for which we'd think it's ok to practice it for 10 years before getting trained in it. 
    In this week’s episode, we’re going to talk about the specific costs and risks of delaying leadership training.
    I will share why it matters so much to set yourself up for success in your role with leadership training as soon as possible.
