Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Discovering your most valuable activities, part of Enhancing Your Productivity.
In order to make yourself irreplaceable, you need to understand what your most valuable activities are.…I'm going to walk you through a short process to help you discover them.…To make this easier for you we've created a worksheet that you can use.…In this worksheet the column called Work Activity is where you'll list each type of work activity…that you perform during the day.…For this exercise, you want to separate these work activities in terms of the big picture…rather than individual tasks.…
Work activities on this worksheet should be listed by broad categories such as new product…development, graphic design or sales, not email, answering phones, or running errands.…Next, move to the Talent column.…We're simply going to rate how talented you think you are on a scale of 0 to 10, 0 being…no talent, 10 being highly talented.…Again, if you've gone through the process of assessing your talents, you'll know that your…talents are those things that are your combined gifts, loves, and skills.…
Next, the Replace column is where you'll rate how difficult it would be to replace you.…
