I’m excited to be sharing how employees can overcome the pain of procrastination and be more effective in this recent Chief Learning Officer article.
Procrastination is the perceived sense that doing a task is going to be more painful than not doing it. When employees feel that they won’t be able to do something perfectly, they may find a myriad of reasons not to do the job at all – or, at the very least, put off doing it for as long as possible.
As I explain in CLO associate editor Kate Everson’s article, Beat Back Procrastination, the reality is that practicing procrastination leads to more stress than just diving in and doing your best. An experienced Chief Learning Officer can help employees become more effective, even excited, about a task that they would normally dread.
