The challenge you face as a conference organizer or meeting planner is taking on the role of being a ridiculously in charge rock solid leader.
You can decide to be a meetings’ transactional order taker and fulfiller. You may decide that’s all you want to do for the rest of your life. Or you can decide to be a leader. The choice is yours.
Six Questions To Assess Your Strategic Brain
If you decide you want to be a leader, you’ll need to work on your strategic brain and strategic thinking. Here are six questions from author and brain guru Sandra Bond Chapman to assess if your brain needs a strategic revamp and overhaul.
- Do you allow frequent interruptions (3-4 per hour) when working on main tasks?
- Do you jump to a new task when immediately asked rather than making good progress on the major goal of the day?
- Do you multitask more than twice a day when you’re working on a major project?
- Do you work past your regular bedtime two nights or more a week to solve complex problems or complete major assignments?
- Do you have difficulty knowing when you have saturated your capacity to think clearly and work effectively?
- Do you recognize when there are strains on your task performance?
If you answered yes to two or more questions, your brain needs a strategic revamp.
