5 Leadership Tasks You Can Do in 30 Minutes or Less
Leadership takes discipline…the discipline to think outside yourself and do things that lift up, encourage, empower, or benefit those on your team.
Everyday you have small chunks of time that might otherwise seem unproductive. They are not large enough to tackle major leadership tasks on your todo list, but they can still be utilized to encourage and empower your organization.
Do you have 5 to 30 minutes before your next “hard” calendar commitment?
Try one of these.
- Send a hand-written “thank you” note to a team member for their effort on a recent project or initiative.
- Spend 30 minutes brainstorming ideas for building community within your team. Pick one idea and put it into motion.
- Walk around the office and have a 5 minute casual conversation with a team member you don’t get to interact with as much. Be sure to thank them for what they do or compliment them for their efforts.
- Write out a story about a customer or employee that reinforces the mission of your organization. Determine an avenue for sharing that story with your organization within one week.
- Invite a capable junior team member to be a part of on an important meeting as a way to develop them as a leader.
