Effectiveness Best Practices: Effectiveness: getting the right things done
The effective leader focuses on managing himself or herself for effectiveness. Getting “the right things done” is the mission, not increasing personal efficiency. It is easy to lapse into the rut of simply being efficient by managing piles of reports, calls, emails and meetings. After hitting the efficiency wall, leaders must focus on effectiveness strategies to gain ground.
