The efficient leader

The efficient leader - From being controlled by time to controlling the time

Do you often find yourself getting caught up in day to day business while ideas about development and strategy fade away? Do you often (need to) work nights and week-ends in order to perform and show/prove the necessary results?

Spend one day on this course based on the book by Trine Kolding ”The efficient leader – working 40 hours a week and succeeding”. 20 leaders from very different companies including Maersk Line, Coloplast, CSC, Rosendahl Design Group and NCC are mentioned in the book. One thing they all have in common: They work max 40 hours a week.

The course is for all leaders who experience lack of time. You will learn about 10 features characterising efficient leaders. Furthermore we will specifically present tips and methods to strengthen your daily efficiency – regardless of your desire to work more or less than 40 hours.
