Managing Your Time as a Leader
Volume 7, Number 4 - Reflections, The SoL Journal

by Marilyn Paul and David Peter Stroh

Marilyn Paul, author of It’s Hard to Make a Difference When You Can’t Find Your Keys: The Seven-Step Path to Becoming Truly Organized, joins her husband, business partner, and SoL member David in capturing the basic implications of their work for effective leadership. You may have seen a Harvard Business Review article addressing the symptom of overworked executives, which reported that working long hours and traveling between multiple time zones result in the equivalent of decisions made under the effect of too many martinis. Paul and Stroh are clear that this is a symptom of faulty assumptions that cause us to work more, achieve less, and create a ripple of ineffectiveness in the organizations we manage. They urge us to stop addressing the symptoms and start addressing the causes of working more and achieving less. Two of their key points are recognizing how to increase sustainable productivity, and reducing phantom workload. Their artful use of creative tension to frame their lessons and practical techniques is a great application of organizational learning fundamentals.
