Learn to focus on essentials, and strengthen your priority, time, and to-do management skills to create balance, enjoyment and satisfaction in your professional life. Do you find yourself so busy digging a ditch with a spoon that you don't have time to go back to the tool shed and fetch a shovel? Are your in-box, and daily schedule at maximum capacity? Does it seem impossible to include those extras that would make your job more enjoyable and satisfying? Conquering overload is the constant challenge of 21st century school administrators. This book breathes fresh air into the often murky world of priority management. Setting Leadership Priorities teaches busy professionals how to distinguish between information, activities, and situations that must be retained, those that might be refined, and many that should be relinquished.
Drawing more than twenty years of experience as a teacher and administrator, Lovely understands that reducing frustration and overload helps administrators by: o increasing retention rates and improving success on the job o allowing them to redistribute leadership by delegating o creating balance in their daily lives and in their long-term professional journey When the emergencies outnumber the victories and you can't see the door over your towering in-box, it's time to reshuffle your priorities and let clarity emerge.
