Too Much to Do and Too Little Time

Do you sometimes feel you have too much to do and not enough time to do it in? You aren't alone. It can be frustrating when you're expending a lot of energy but not sure you're doing it in the right places for the right reasons. Having goals is a good start. But do your goals align with your organization's goals for you? When goals shift and change and you don't know which are most important and to what degree you're supposed to be attending to them, it can get confusing. You have to be clear on where you're headed and why, otherwise your work getting there will be scattered and you won't make the best use of your time. In this course, you'll learn how to get clarity around what's most important - your goals - by ensuring they're aligned with those of your organization, so you can prioritize your work based on those goals.

SumTotal Talent

An organization's people are its biggest competitive advantage - however, programs designed to increase employee engagement and productivity often don't produce the desired results. Research shows this is typically due to lack of visibility into employees' capabilities and performance or HR having to spend too much time gathering and analyzing information across multiple systems instead of taking action that could have a material impact on the business.

On top of all that, the IT function is now being integrated into the company's other operations and is expected to operate as a business-within-abusiness. Overseeing this sea change is the CIO. This paper examines how the role of the CIO has been evolving to meet today's new world of IT.

Direct the White Space: Refocusing Leadership Development from Program to Process

The current approach to leadership development in most organizations today isn't working. Organizations must refocus their leadership efforts and shift their mindset from programs to process. The solution must scale and be compatible with the environment in which leaders operate - one of constant change and a scarcity of "white space." This paper provides insights on how we can refocus leadership development by moving from programs to process and directing the white space.

It's About Time: Developing Women for Business Leadership

Time management is particularly important for women to succeed in business because women already have more absolute, if self-imposed, demands on their time. This is true both inside and outside of the workplace. Women are also less likely to consider timeline trajectories in planning their careers and career development. Neither do they typically have "extra" time to accept additional assignments that traditionally have helped workers ascend the corporate ladder. In this paper, research firm Eudemonia illustrates how a time-bound and time-sensitive approach to developing women for business leadership positions can be a critical enabler of success.
