The next most important lesson for team leadership is that time management is a daily process. Each day, team leaders need to (1) decide what tasks must absolutely be done that day, (2) budget enough time on the team schedule so that those “must do” tasks get done and (3) block out all distractions from telephone calls, e-mails, social media websites and well-meaning human beings that keep you from those tasks.
Leadership Skills Training Tip to Prioritize Activity: As a team lead you may serve multiple members, each one considers himself your most important priority. But they are wrong. When you are a team leader there is only one person who decides what you should be doing at any given moment, and that is you. Stay focused on the team’s objectives and prioritize who and what to focus on, one-at-a-time. Sequential work process and work streams will help eliminate overload.
