Directors have told me for years that their biggest problem is time pressure. And wow, I know, because it was for me too. Time crunch is severe for directors.  Problem number one: time — not enough.  (Second biggest problem is — you guessed it — staff, crazy.)  Let me solve your problems!

I briefly discuss the two big insights of time management gurus. However, neither reduces your time commitments, your duties, the root problem.  My insight does.  Of course, it is not a pink pill that will take away all pain immediately.  You wouldn’t believe a promise like that. However, it is a solid insight, leading to some very practical and doable steps that will reduce your time pressure as a director — if implemented.  Listen now.

The information is free.  The file is about one half of an hour.  There is a suggested activity that brings it to 1 hour.

(Right now only $3.99) Look to the sidebar box for a method to get the transaction done online.  (Now getting this up online is fairly new.  If you encounter problems, my email is  OR  we can do this the tried and true method:  P.O.
