As jobs get busier and busier, knowing how to effectively manage your time can make an incredible difference to you in your role – assisting with stress levels, making sure you don’t forget key tasks and helping you keep on top of things. So here are a few tips on time management.


Tip 1:  Don’t multi-task!

5 Minutes on Effective Delegation

LIANZA presents a starting point on how to delegate work and outlines the most common missteps that new managers make.



Get the balance right
It can be really difficult to delegate effectively, especially for new managers. If you delegate too much you can end up abdicating responsibility and giving employees tasks they aren’t ready for, with decisions being made that don’t align with strategy.   Delegate too little and you can end up a frazzled micromanaging ball of stress with disengaged employees who aren’t accountable at all.
