About This Episode

As a leader, you’re responsible for setting the tone when it comes to your team’s productivity. But in a culture where many of us confuse busyness for productivity, it can be difficult to find the daily rhythms and structures that help you and your team accomplish your most important tasks. 

In this episode, BELAY CFO Lisa Zeeveld talks with V.P. of Marketing Amy Appleton about four strategies leaders can use to be more productive with their time, physical space, meetings, and delegation. They share practical tips for becoming a better delegator, setting up a physical space that’s conducive to productivity, structuring meetings for maximum effectiveness, and more.

1. Think about your tasks as rocks, pebbles, and sand.

Prioritize what’s most important to you, find space for secondary tasks, and then fill in empty spaces with everything else.


2. The greatest gift you can give your employees is trust.

If you’re struggling to delegate, start with something small and check in throughout the process. This will help you build trust with your team to delegate bigger responsibilities in the future.


3. Being busy is not the same as being productive.

Productivity is not about completing a large number of tasks, it’s about accomplishing the most important goals.
