Workload Management
This training is designed to help individual contributors excel in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing, sometimes chaotic workplace. The activities in the training focus on developing skills needed to improve work efficiency and effectiveness by setting attainable goals, managing competing priorities, and dealing with changes in the workplace.
Today’s managers and individual contributors often take on many different cross-functional, project-related, short- and long-term tasks, activities and responsibilities. And the work often comes from many sources. As a result, both managers and individual contributors need to step in from time to time and ask themselves two questions:
  • What should my high-priority responsibilities be right now?
  • How will I—and others—know how well I’m performing?

This training consists of two closely related processes. The first process helps people prioritize their work according to key results the organization is trying to achieve. The second process helps formu­late clear goals that have high payoffs for the organization and use objective terms that sup­port verification of results.

Process 1: Identifying Work Priorities
  • Rate and rank work responsibilities based on their organizational contributions
  • With their managers’ guidance, use the key actions to identify work priorities
  • Plan for successful meetings with their managers to review work priorities
Process 2:  Setting Goals and Achieving Results
  • Explore factors that both support and hinder goal achievement
  • Develop personal leadership goals, and ensure they are the right goals
  • Learn how to develop SMART goals
  • Assess and improve the clarity and alignment of organizational goals
  • Develop a high engagement and success-based plan to track and monitor progress toward goals (Play the Game!)
