How I Work
As a multi-talented individual involved in various work engagements with multiple clients often concurrently, one of the commonest questions I get asked is, “George, how do you manage?” An extension to the same question is, “How do you maintain your productivity with multi-tasking?”
These questions are perfectly understandable. Multi-tasking has, more often than not, proven to be an enemy of productivity.
It is, therefore, for this reason that Over the past year or so, I have taken a special interest in productivity optimisation as a subject matter. Surely, there is no denying the fact that my pathway can appear like a tornado of responsibilities as a Project Management Professional (PMP®), e-commerce enthusiast, nonprofit management specialist, innovation catalyst, productivity coach, and creative writer.
However, I have some good news! Firstly, I usually do not work alone, rather, I work with a team of well-qualified professionals in different disciplines. Secondly, at the centre of this vortex is a well-planned, strategic method of working that combines steadfast integrity, teamwork, and productivity principles.
Below, I further discuss some of the key productivity skills, tools, and strategies that allow me to navigate this complex and multifaceted trajectory while sustaining the highest levels of productivity, encouraging positive team dynamics, and creating genuine client relationships as some of my work ethos.
Being a Project Management Professional (PMP®) and an ardent advocate for productivity, I understand the paramount importance of efficient time management, self-organization, and goal-setting, and I always strive to put all this into practice. Productivity tools are my allies that help me meet my deadlines across multiple pursuits.
I firmly believe that collaboration is the cornerstone of exceptional outcomes. While I'm a multifaceted individual, my approach revolves around teamwork and collaboration. I surround myself with a diverse team of experts hailing from different disciplines, each bringing their unique talents to the table.
In every client engagement, maintaining unwavering honesty and integrity is a non-negotiable principle. Open communication is the lifeblood of my work approach, both internally within the team and externally with clients. I keep clients informed about project progress, milestones achieved, and any challenges faced.
