Right now for many people in leadership and management positions, the weeks are flying by and projects are piling up like planes trying to land in Chicago before a storm. Incoming requests for one’s time and attention are overwhelming even the best of us. We are working hard and faster than ever before and we are barely keeping up with the day to day challenges let alone the strategic level work that needs to be done. In short, we are running at full capacity and there is no more bandwidth to expand into.
When this becomes the norm for weeks and months on end, we are called to a new way of working and leading. The “stop doing list” put forth by Jim Collins needs to be created, but we rarely have time or the energy to do this level of work. However, there is a solution, namely to participate in the Fall 2014 From Vision to Action Executive Roundtable.
Over the years, I have visited with many of the participants at the Roundtable in small groups and on a one to one level. Routinely, they share with me that they consider the Spring and the Fall Roundtables to be their once or twice a year personal retreat. It is for them a time to stop, think and reflect. It is a place where they catch their breath and regroup before diving back in.
If you are seeking a time this fall to rethink all that is taking place at work and at home, then I encourage you to come and join us at the Fall 2014 From Vision to Action Executive Roundtable on September 17 - 18, 2014. Here is a link to more details:
This fall is going to be a fast paced and busy season for all of us. Rather than being overwhelmed, I hope you can join us for a day and half of good learning, great networking, and in-depth sharing.
