If you’re a leader, then you have a multitude of responsibilities that keep your schedule overflowing. Dealing with day-to-day issues, addressing long-term initiatives, putting out fires, responding to email, juggling numerous projects, meeting a myriad of deadlines – you’re constantly being asked to do more with less – provide better customer service, greater productivity and stronger leadership, all while your time and resources dwindle. Boy, it’s enough to make you lose your breath (and sometimes your sanity!)
