As an MBA student, Laura Stack was inspired by Peter Drucker’s classic 1969 book The Effective Executive… but a lot has changed since it was written. While Drucker’s advice on what to do remains brilliant, he didn’t give much detail on the how.
In this Master Class led by America’s Premier Expert in Productivity™, you’ll learn precisely how today’s leaders and managers can obtain profitable, productive results by managing the intersection of two critical values: effectiveness and efficiency.
Effectiveness, Laura says, is identifying and achieving the best objectives for your organization — doing the right things. Efficiency is accomplishing them with the least amount of time, effort, and cost—doing things right. If you’re not clear on both, you’re wasting your time. As Drucker put it, “There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.”
Laura identifies 12 practices that will enable you to be effective and efficient, grouped into three areas where executive leaders spend their time, called 3T Leadership: Strategic Thinking (Business), Teamwork (Employees), and Tactics (Self). For each practice, she offers advice from her 25 years in the trenches, working with thousands of leaders globally. You’ll receive scores of new ideas on how you, your team, and your organization can boost productivity!
Here’s what some attendees of the live event had to say:
- “Great lessons on multiple fronts that I can put to use – some readily, many others over a period of time.”
- “A good framework not only for myself but for my team on how to manage time and find the right balance.”
- “Good high-level approach to viewing components of leadership – easy to retain concepts.”
