Ever wonder why some tasks take so much more time than others to complete? It’s amazing to see how some people accomplish a task so much faster than others. Ever wonder why?

Many organizations mistakenly attribute the amount of effort and effectiveness of an individual to the time they spend on something. Over three decades of experience in training leaders from many different organisations and situations, I’ve learned that there is rarely a direct correlation between time spent and efficiency. When I was Chief Operating Officer for a marketing and manufacturing company many years ago, the President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Board were surprised when I said that the duties they described should take no more than the time they claimed. I also stated that I could do all the tasks in a fraction of the time. I explained that I believed that the person who was hired to fill the position should not only pay himself but also create efficiencies and save money that would be a benefit to the company. They increased my salary several times without me asking. I had already saved them twice my annual salary within four months of my hiring.

When training people for leadership, I teach them how to manage organizational aspects that help create efficiency in time and money. The most effective leader will be able to quickly get to the heart of the matter and allow others to focus on their true priorities. I’ve been frustrated by leaders who spend too much time on secondary matters and not enough time on important and priority issues. To avoid wasting his time, a leader needs to learn how to organize. He must be able to identify the essence of the matter and then have the tools and process to make informed decisions. True leaders don’t “run away”, procrastinate, or fear making difficult decisions. They are happy to be in a position to make important decisions. A true leader, just like a star athlete who “wants the ball” at “crunch time”, is always ready to lead. A well-organized leader is prepared for all eventualities and can respond quickly to any situation.

Efficiency is something you can learn, but it does require some discipline and commitment. It’s not hard to understand why certain people do it better than others.
