What interesting have we learned

Here is what else useful and interesting we heard, saw and learned over the past month, but why did not find a decent place on other pages of the magazine.

What they learned: “Plan only 4-5 hours of real work per day. Days are always filling. It is perfectly normal that there are days when you cannot work at all, and days when you can work 12 hours in a row. Work harder when you want. Rest when it is not there. Separate thinking and execution to do faster and think better. Always work only on what will have the greatest effect. Always know one of the most important business of the day. Write down everything that distracts you - arbitrary thoughts, new ideas, all sorts of things. The thing is that when you write them down, they will stop distracting you from work. ”

What they learned: Some funny terms that are not yet in the Russian language: "Seagull management is a management style in which the manager, suddenly flying into an object, makes a lot of noise, spoils everywhere, and then suddenly flies away, leaving behind a complete mess." “A personal ambush is an awkward situation when you come across a seemingly familiar person, but do not have time to remember his name.”

What they learned: How to properly plan your goals? First of all, it is worth dividing all goals into three groups: “I need”, “I need the company”, “I need the management”. Priority should be given only to those goals that meet all three criteria at the same time. How to save work time? Use the OHIO principle (Only handle it once), the principle of which is the instant execution of simple tasks. What can be done right now must be done right now, otherwise then it will take twice as much time. You should also leave voids in the work schedule so that at this time you can think about strategic plans or fill them in with suddenly arisen tasks.

Where did you find out: From the book “At the peak of opportunities. Rules for the Effectiveness of Professionals: Robert Pousen Mann, Ivanov and Ferber

What they learned: “Starting to work with a new team of sellers, assign a cash bonus (even 100 rubles) for each product sold. With this promotion, sellers will give all the best. As soon as you see what employees are actually capable of, make the level of sales shown by them a part of the plan and begin to fine for its failure. Give bonuses only for overfulfillment. "

What they learned: A convenient way to plan business projects: firstly, to brainstorm all stages, secondly, identify success factors, then categorize the ideas that have arisen and include them in the project implementation plan. Here are the categories by which ideas can be divided: assumptions to be checked, tactics, necessary employees, possible obstacles, necessary information, resources and events with which you need to coordinate your actions at all stages of the project.
