Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video How do you tell others that you're going to be putting new practices into your schedule?, part of Balancing Work and Life.
If people are used to getting access to you…at any hour of the day,…then it can be a little bit of a rude switch for them…when you say, "Okay, I'm going to be sticking…to this schedule from now on."…The first thing that you want to do is communicate…why it's in their interest to do this,…and the biggest reason why it's in someone else's interest,…is because you're going to focus on them.…You're going to give them more of your time…and more of your attention by doing this.…Why? Because there will be less interruptions,…less switches in your day,…and you won't feel like you need to multitask on them…while they're asking you questions…or wanting your attention.…
So sit down with them.…Have that conversation.…Let them know why it's in their interest…for you to establish the schedule.…
