Perhaps the most important component of leadership excellence is the ability to manage ourselves first. Time and productivity management is a key part of personal, professional, and leadership success, but in the fast-paced, demanding world we live and work in it can be one of the most challenging skills to master. You can be a great communicator and have the trust of your team, but if you don’t effectively manage your time, you will experience increased stress and pressure that can impact your personal job satisfaction, relationships with others, and your team’s effectiveness.
