Middle managers, are you optimizing productivity or just spinning your wheels?
Ask yourself these questions to evaluate the content of your job.
- What is the content of your actual job? Look back at your last 6 months and honestly evaluate which tasks created value and which did not.
- Why did some tasks not contribute to value? Were you wasting time in meetings or not delegating effectively?
- Are you spending time every day learning about your business and industry from outside sources?
Reading and consuming new information can lead to ideas and innovation. You will be more valuable and grow. Don’t let a lack of knowledge hold you back.
