Four Steps To Creating More Time In Your Day For Business Team Building Activities

We all run out of time in getting certain tasks done. When under pressure, team leaders know that they have less time for organising and conducting business team building activities. A question often asked is “how can I create more time in my day for the things that are important such as developing my group of employees into an effective team?” If you are like me and often face this situation, then read on as this article provides four steps to creating more time in your day for the things that count.

All of us have 24 hours each day to use as best as we can. We often try to squeeze a lot of jobs and activities into a limited time frame and some just don’t fit. The problem is that we allocate a certain amount of time to complete a task or activity and then it turns out to be more involved or larger than initially thought.

Here’s an example. You have called your team members into a meeting to give them information about ordering products from a major supplier. The meeting was intended as a quick five minute briefing. Fast forward thirty minutes and you haven’t explained the heart of the matter, the ordering procedures. Most of the time has been taken up talking around the topic or off the topic completely. In addition, you had planned on having a catch up session with team members near to the end of the day to discuss a social outing that you had in mind for them. That plan evaporated as no time today, maybe next week? Where has the day gone? A frustrating outcome.

Here are four steps to create more time for business team building activities.

1. Focus on what’s important

Make better use of time by focusing on what is important. At the start of every work day, figure out what is most important to do then next important and so on. Knowing what jobs must be done in order to successfully operate the business is essential.

2. Get organised

Write a list of tasks that need to be completed and commit to doing them today. Feel a sense of achievement and self-control as jobs are marked off the list.

3. Be persistent

Good outcomes are usually achieved through staying on course and sticking with a job until it is finished. Avoid being distracted by preferring to do less difficult tasks or engaging in conversations with other people. You have a specific job at the top of your list for a reason. It must be important, therefore get on and do it.

4. Adjust what you think about

Keep in mind that your ability to better utilise your time is influenced by the way you think. With a small amount of adjustment you can be more prudent in what you do and how you do it so that you complete tasks with less effort and with more enjoyment. You will then have more time to spend on business team building activities. Go build your team!
