Structure your New Year Resolutions

First of all…HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, I hope you have all enjoyed the holiday season!?

It is a great time of year to think about all that you have achieved in the past year and what you want to do in the new year. New year resolutions are a great way to think about what you want to achieve over the next year, and we all know what the common ones are 🙂

I have read a few Facebook/Instagram/Twitter posts today from people posting their resolutions. Writing down your resolutions is a great thing to do as it gets you committed, sharing them with people is also another great way to commit. From what I have seen so far I feel that structuring them in a slightly different way will help to think about exactly how you are going to go about achieving what you want and also help you realise why you are doing it in the first place.

Managing Deadlines 1: For Delegates

I was about to give written advice to a few people that work for me on how to manage deadlines… and I thought “why don’t I just blog it”…two birds with one stone!

When you work for someone else there is a very good chance that you will be delegated tasks to complete. Sometimes these tasks may be delegated in a very structured manner and sometimes they may not. But regardless of how they are delegated, what should be clear is that your boss wants something from you by a certain time.

It is important to be able to manage your deadlines effectively for several reasons: –

  1. To prove to your manager that you are competent
  2. To show that you are well organised
  3. To show your line manager that you are committed and confident
  4. You will be able to manage your workload effectively
  5. When your manager asks you to complete something you will be able to confidently confirm if the deadline is achievable – which in some cases it might not be.

Setting goals with your employees

When it’s time for annal appraisals remember to spend time talking about career development and personal goals. Try to look at appraisals as a personal development tool…key word – PERSONAL!!

Give your employees time to discuss their own personal achievements and goals.
Find a way that you can help and support them to achieve their goals and become successful.
