Below, 15 members of Forbes Coaches Council share the best tips for planning ahead so that you are proactive rather than reactive when it comes to solving problems at work. Here’s what they recommend:
11. Stay Organized
Staying organized is key to being proactive and keeping things under control. Being organized is a delicate balance between managing your time and not being a slave to it. Develop an organizational system that works for you and fits your personal style. Then use it. Create “footballs” for projects and team engagements so you can dedicate time to proactive discussions and critical thinking. – Tony Mickle, Big Box Coaching
