Paul Holbrook left his corporate career to become a leadership coach and in the process realised that almost everyone he talks to struggles with time. He decided to tackle this challenge by creating a self-leadership programme Diary Detox focusing on healthier distribution of time and published a book ‘What Are You Doing? The uncomfortable truth about how you waste time at work’. Instead of being a CEO, Paul chooses to call himself a Chief Management Rebel.
In this episode Paul and I explore the challenge of understanding where our time goes. Paul is a strong believer we all need to make time for our personal life, health and wellbeing in order to protect our work productivity. He explains about the five key categories where our time could be potentially going and how we can start distributing it in a healthier way. We speak about how to move away from working long hours in spite of there always being more work and how to have the sometimes uncomfortable conversations with our colleagues, teams and managers, when we have decided to work differently. We also discuss the ‘Great Resignation’ and the new ‘Hybrid Ways of Working’ to understand the impact they might bring.
