Before I went to MAP I had very little time to get my work done and be a manager. I had to work 60 to 70 hours a week to just keep up with my job duties and manage my staff. I would take on too much work and hold on to the details of the projects. I had a staff that was out of control and doing very little. It just seemed like I could never catch up. I always got good reviews and my boss was happy with my work, but not the time frames. The bottom line is I needed to make better use of my time and hold my team accountable.
After going to MAP I found tools to manage my time better and get my staff working in the right direction. With written schedules for me and my staff I am finding time that I did not know I had. Also it helps me turn my e-mail off to get my job done with less interruption. By using a weekly meeting and keeping meeting minutes, the MAP system is keeping my staff on track and giving them the best direction I haven’t seen in years. I have learned more ways to communicate with people and it has helped my relationships with fellow co-workers.
I can’t say enough about MAP and how much the MAP tools can help any manager do more. If you are a manager, I say you should go and grab as much as you can from this course. It will help you on the job and at home.
Thanks for the class.
