Time Management as a Service

Time Management as a Service

If you want to know what people care about then pay attention to the amount of time they spend doing something and the engagement they have with that activity.

When managing employees or teams strategies based on this principal that help increase engagement, attention and actualization.

“Autonomous Living” – Actualization through Values Based Time Management; developing an understanding of time and our place within it.

The employees goes through exercises on how to define their own values system.

Once this is defined for them personally then they can create their own meaning and engagement in the work they do.

They can value themselves appropriately within the organization. This allows them to be self regulating.

The process ensures that both personal and company values are upheld.

No one likes having to report to anyone but in companies, employees are held to account for a number of different priorities, the last of which is their time. By giving employees time, you focus that time appropriately. Someone concentrating at full focus for 3 hours is much better than someone distracted for 8. Or worse, someone works 10 hours but does 5 hours work…

Many companies get this, which is why they offer full time remote working positions on competitive salaries.

People like to have global freedom. The more free they are to chose how and where they live and what they do with their time, the happier they generally are.

If you have top talent, people who are smart and love what they do, you can nurture that in a big way by developing a shared values reporting structure.

The employee simply has to self report and manage.

Self reporting is nothing more that using time and project management well.
