The Leadership Secrets of Santa Claus

An Excerpt From

The Leadership Secrets of Santa Claus

by Eric Harvey

Making the Most of TIME

  • Prioritize tasks (do the most important things first) and use “to do” lists to organize daily activities.
  • Start and end meetings promptly—and issue agendas in advance.
  • Teach time–management skills and techniques. Take advantage of timesaving technology.

Making the Most of MONEY

  • Buy in discounted bulk whenever appropriate.
  • Shop for the best prices on materials, supplies, equipment, and services.
  • Communicate electronically to reduce long-distance charges.
  • Think pennies as well as dollars–a few cents saved here and there add up quickly.

Making the Most of MATERIALS and EQUIPMENT

  • “Measure twice, cut once.” Reuse and recycle whenever possible.
  • Be religious about preventative maintenance.
  • Invest in extended warranties.

Making the Most of EMPLOYEE TALENT and EXPERTISE

  • Involve the people with the knowledge in the decisions.
  • Match jobs with worker skills and interests.
  • Enhance employee expertise through training and developmental assignments.
  • Encourage employees to share their knowledge with others.

With Love
