Only 9% of leaders say they’re satisfied with the way they spend time, according to a 2013 survey by ­McKinsey & Co.

As for the rest of the executives polled—the ones who were less than satisfied—they fell into four time-management categories: crisis managers, schmoozers, cheer­leaders and online junkies.

1. Crisis managers spend 67% more time than happy leaders on unexpected emergencies.

2. Schmoozers spend 17% more time with clients and customers at the expense of time spent communicating with colleagues.

3. Cheerleaders spend 45% more time on pep talks with staff at the expense of 39% less time with clients, taking “managing by walking around” to a whole new level.

4. Online junkies spend 36% more time online, at the expense of face-to-face communication.
