Workload Management Coaching – Even Leaders Need Support

Published by Kathryn Anda, PEPworldwide on 17 November, 2014

It does not matter what role you hold in an organisation, learning how to manage your daily workload can ensure you achieve more in a less stressful way.

Workload management coaching is designed specifically for leaders, tailored to address the extra responsibilities they have and the added management tasks they must oversee.

Time analysis is essential

Taking a step back and analyzing the time currently spent on daily tasks is a key first step. It will allow you to get a picture of how you currently fill your day, what gets pushed aside, how much planning and scheduling you manage and ultimately how well your goals are achieved.

Learning to focus on the bigger picture

Sometimes even managers get bogged down with the nitty gritty of daily operations and forget to spend time focusing on the strategy or bigger picture. Coaching support will help significantly to free up time and allow managers the right amount of time to plan ahead and perform the role they were employed to do.

Delegation is a skill worth learning

When you work in an organisation full of multi-talented staff you’d be crazy not to leverage off their skills. Delegating work to those who have the ability and know-how to get the job done benefits everyone. You’ll gain back valuable hours in the day to work on high-return activities, and the delegatee will be given the opportunity to work on something different, possibly challenging them, and give them a sense of greater value.

On the job workload coaching

The best results are obtained when coaching takes place on the job instead of offsite in a workshop environment. This way, individual tailored solutions can be adopted for more efficient results. By applying ‘theory’ in the real world, at a practical level, managers will learn to apply new ways of approaching work and they will far more quickly become new habits as opposed to textbook quick fixes. Workload management coaching can provide valuable results and give leaders much-needed time back in their day to focus on the aspects that need attention. It’s all about working smarter, being organised and applying tools, repetitively, without working harder and feeling stressed.
