5 Effective Director Tips

  1. Work streams should always be ranked, so there is no ambiguity about priorities. If everything is important, nothing is important.
  2. Attempt to limit concurrent work streams, encourage engagement and ownership.
  3. Nuanced communication does not scale. Keep your messaging simple and consistent.
  4. Focus on ensuring initiatives are completed once they're started. They can easily get lost in the churn, which can lead to a significant amount of time being lost without you noticing.
  5. Your teams should work at ~80% of their capacity. Although this may initially appear less efficient than keeping them at 100% capacity, it's not. It allows teams to adapt to unforeseen circumstances much more easily, promotes creativity and innovation, as well as prevents burnout.
