Analyze examines the calendar patterns of the executive you support to uncover insights into how his or her time is spent. In seconds, get a visual representation of how your executive’s day, week, or year is divided between meetings, travel, value-add activities and more. With this information at your fingertips, correct inefficiencies, set goals, and take advantage of strategic opportunities.
Analyze offers great insights into where your executive's time is being allocated, but how do you make that information actionable? One way to leverage Analyze is to set calendar goals.
Many executives struggle with time management. As leaders, they are constantly pulled in different directions and it's up to you, the assistant, to prioritize and set boundaries. One way to do just that is to create calendar goals.
Sit down with the executive you support and discuss the best ways to ensure he or she is making the most out of each 8 hour day and 40 hour week. Set goals such as...
- Averaging less than 15 meetings a week.
- Spending less than 7 hours in external meetings.
- Spending less than 5 hours in internal meetings.
- Having a typical meeting length of .5 hours.
Using Analyze, you can then take those goals and compare them to reality. Each week and/or month, create a calendar report and share the results with your executive. Together, you can make positive changes that will help you both be more successful.
