(Focus & Organization, Time Utilization, Priority Focus)
Organization measures the degree to which you are able to focus and structure work responsibilities, set priorities and follow through on your commitments. The resources will provide you with information about organization in the workplace and the impact it may have on your success.
Higher levels of organization will allow you to effectively plan your day-to-day tasks.
Lower levels of organization may make it challenging for you to accomplish your daily goals.
Excessive levels of organization may lead you to have a rigid work style or very narrow work focus.
Identify an opportunity area that you would like to change. Then, develop behaviors that you can Stop (unhelpful or limiting behaviors), Start (behaviors that you can begin now), and Continue (behaviors that you already do well) to improve in this area. Use the examples below to help create your own Stop, Start, and Continue behaviors.
|Allowing the day to go by without having a clear idea of all priorities.||Spending 10 minutes at the beginning of each day planning your priorities.||Using an online calendar to set up your meetings.|
|Ending the day with a number of priorities and tasks unfinished.||Wrapping-up each day by noting the priorities and tasks that were not met and cleaning up your list for the next day.||Looking ahead to the future when planning.|
|Allowing assignments to slip because they slowly fell out of focus.||Keeping a running list of key priorities and project tasks for which you are responsible.||Choosing simple solutions to your organizing problems.|
