What your boss needs now more than ever

Executives are struggling with time management now more than ever, given the “doing more with less” phi­­losophy that reigns in most workplaces.

In a new poll from Robert Half Man­agement Resources, 38% of ex­ec­u­tives surveyed said time man­­­­agement is their greatest challenge—more than keeping up with technology or staying current with their industry’s regulations.

Ask your boss: “How can I open up more time in your schedule?"

Ideas:

  • Sort all incoming papers, whisking away or routing the unimportant.
  • Process her e-mail inbox, culling the garbage, forwarding only what deserves her personal attention, and processing the rest.
  • Handle routine correspondence. Armed with a boss’s preferences, you could answer requests for meetings, time or donations, for example.
