I try to spend my time on what I think is important. I walk around everyday and talk with my people so that I get a feeling of what is going on. By talking with them, I understand what they think is important and I use that to help me plan–whether that means more training, more team building, or changing strategies.
I meet with my senior staff bi-weekly to try to delegate out my priorities and change directions on things that are not working. Of course the “recent” budget issues have introduced a lot of concern by both the senior staff and front-line staff, and that has captured a majority of my time lately.
