A speech I gave at the HRMATT Conference in Port of Spain on May 13, 2013 on the ways that time management 2.0 can be used to lift executive performance.

From the conference brochure:

“No man, it’s alright. No problem.” The Caribbean is famous for its laid-back attitude, so perfect for getting away from the stresses of the world's capitals. However, it’s not so much fun when you live here and have to experience this attitude first-hand at the Driver's Licensing Office.

Why does this and other awful experiences persist?

Our research at Framework Consulting tells us that it’s a historical backlash. Slavery and indentureship brought harsh consequences for the smallest infractions, and as its descendants we have responded: our workplaces are remarkably free of consequences, feedback and real accountability.

Reversing the tide of history will take more than just talk however.

A few years ago we embarked on a project to train over 80 of the top executives of a regional conglomerate in three countries - primarily in Trinidad but also in Barbados and Jamaica. Quite separately, we also conducted the same transformation program in these three countries in different companies. We learned that our region's professionals are loathe to give feedback, but also that it's easy to correct the problem with the right intervention using customized cases and video-taped feedback.

Come and learn the nuances of changing a core behaviour that plagues Caribbean companies.

There's a reason project managers have a tough time with team members who don't pull their weight. It's because their time management skills vary so much that it makes the task of hitting deadlines difficult.

This speech was given to the Project Management Institute's Dr. Bird Chapter in Kingston Jamaica. It describes the journey undertaken by the protagonist in the book "Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure." At a certain part of the story, he must find a way to improve the skills of his team-members so that they can fulfill their mandate, and also avoid being laid off due to low productivity. He's forced to take some risks to realize this goal that brings him into direct confrontation with company policies and an employee who wants to see him fail. http://perfect.mytimedesign.com

Recently, I gave an interview on TVJ outlining the impact of work at home policies on companies in Jamaica. I looked at the issue from a time management / productivity perspective and brought in some lessons from "Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure"

What would it take to make a more productive Jamaican workplace?
This interview on March 1, 2013 took place on a radio show and addressed this question, using ideas from my book, Bill's Im-Perfect Time Management Adventure.

Why do professionals seem to be using new technology such as email or smartphones so badly? I addressed this question in a speech given to the Jamaica Employers Federation Convention 2011.  I spoke about the fact that as mobile and other technologies spread, companies need to put in place policies to safeguard employee productivity and safety.

Smartphones are about to become ubiquitous in the workplace. What will happen when many of the unproductive and even dangerous habits that have arisen become widespread? What will Caribbean companies do about the drop in productivity that is likely to ensue?

Caribbean Time Management? Is this just an oxymoron, or are there ways to impact the productive skills of our professionals, knowing that we can't just send them to a course in New York and hope for the best. If not, what exactly can we do?

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
