Your Most Precious Resource. Time is the one thing we can’t get back. Time spent planning your calendar can pay huge dividends. Perhaps one of the largest benefits of doing so is being more efficient and effective with the time you spend with the members of your team. Not all time is created equal. Once you start differentiating how you spend your time based on individual team member behaviors, you should see benefits in terms of improved performance. So take greater control over how you spend your time – it’s the best investment you can make every week.
