The practical time management tactic for busy leaders

How can we leave our workdays feeling less stressed and exhausted? This is a common question for many leaders. After days filled with meetings and unexpected interruptions, there is often little time left over for deep-thinking or other critical tasks that contribute to our organization. In today’s episode, Janet reflects on this challenge, sharing her own exhaustion and desire to manage time efficiently and productively. With gratitude for the advice from Mark Murphy, Janet shares the research and technique behind “time batching” to help us balance our lives and feel energized.

This episode addresses questions, such as:

  • What are the effects of time management on mental wellness?
  • How can we manage our time to reduce exhaustion?
  • Why does time batching increase efficiency?
