7 Management Tips Straight From Harvard

  1. 1. 7 Management Tips Straight from Harvard Insightful. Actionable. Innovative. Top-tier advice from Harvard Business Review
  2. 2. Blaze Through Your To-Do List Self-discipline is challenging. Employ these three tips to make your work more efficient every day:
  3. 3. Get three things done before noon. Statistics show that the team ahead at halftime is more likely to win the game. Enjoy your lunch knowing that you accomplished at least three tasks in the morning.
  4. 4. Sequence for speed. Break projects into parts. Take on the longer pieces at the beginning and make sure each subsequent part is shorter. If you leave the longest parts for last, you are more likely to run out of steam before the end of the day.
  5. 5. Tackle similar tasks at the same time. The mind thrives on repetition. You can build momentum by taking on similar projects at the same time.
  6. 6. Act Like You Already Have What You Want Your mind can be your best asset. However, doubts, fears, and anxieties can impede your ability to deliver. Be cognizant of your mindset.
  7. 7. Whether you’re concerned that you don’t have the respect of your peers or that a customer isn’t calling you back because she’s gone to a competitor, overthinking the issue only serves to compound the worry. Instead, pretend you have what you want. Act as if your peers respect you or as if the customer is loyal. These may be fantasies, but what you’re worrying about may be as well. It’s better to stop the worry and act confidently; chances are better that you’ll get what you want.
  8. 8. Know What Matters - Quality Over Quantity Mulitasking can cause trouble when it comes to output. Overextending yourself should be a real concern. However, single-tasking can create issues in terms of productivity. You need to multitask to keep up in today's fast-paced world.
  9. 9. Instead, identify the tasks that will create the most value and focus on those. By prioritizing value over volume and sharpening your focus on tasks that truly matter, you’ll increase the quality of your work and, ultimately, the value you provide. What to do with all those tasks that didn’t make the high-value list? Put them on a “do later” list. If they continually fail to make it to the high-value list, ask yourself: why do them at all?
  10. 10. Schedule Regular Check-Ins...With Yourself When a company is breaking new ground, the number concern should always be how to stay on track and always achieve at the highest possible level. Make time regularly to seriously self-evaluate.
  11. 11. Every week, take a quiet hour to reflect on recent critical events —conflicts, failures, opportunities you exploited, observations of others’ behavior, feedback from others. Consider how you responded, what went well, what didn’t, and what might be more effective in the future.Never cancel this meeting—it’s crucial.
  12. 12. Grow Beyond Excuses And Push Yourself Do not make the mistake of clinging to poor behaviors because you assume they are inherent to your character or personality. "That's just the way I am!" has no place in a thriving workplace.
  13. 13. Instead of insisting that you can’t change, think about how these behaviors may be impeding the success of those around you. Don’t think of these behaviors as character traits, but as possibilities for improvement. You’ll be surprised how easily you can change when it helps you succeed.
  14. 14. Imagine Yourself Starting From The Beginning When evaluating your performance, think about what you would do if you were to start in your role anew. Identify what you would do different if you could start over.
  15. 15. Taking this step back can help you evaluate the strategies and approaches you are currently using, see things that are too difficult to see when you are entrenched, and reenergize yourself for the challenges ahead.
  16. 16. Ditch Either/Or In Favor Of Both/And Leaders need to be a lot of different and potentially contradictory things. On the one hand, they should be determined, analytical, and organized. On the other hand, characteristics like empathetic, charismatic, and communicative also serve a purpose.
  17. 17. Rather than categorizing yourself as a certain type of leader, explore the nuances that a complex, fast-moving business environment requires. Leaders need to confidently deliver tough messages with analytics as evidence, but they also need to be sensitive to how people receive those messages. Most leadership traits are not an either/or choice, but rather complementary sides of effective management.
