How PODC Can Give You More Time and Make Leading Easier

Is leading your team eating up all your time?

Learn about a simple way to lead better and get hours back in your day.

Being in charge can feel like you’re running a never-ending race. You’re always checking tasks off your list, but somehow, it just keeps growing. Sounds familiar, right? Well, there’s a simple secret that could not only help you get through your to-do list faster but also make you feel less tied down by all those tasks. It’s called the PODC framework, and here’s how it breaks down:

Plan: Know Where You’re Going

First things first, you need a plan. Think of it like planning a road trip. Knowing your destination and how you’re going to get there makes the trip smoother and stops you from wasting time on detours. Having a plan for your business does the same thing – it keeps you on track.

  • Define clear, achievable goals for your team and business.

  • Identify the resources you need—people, technology, and budget.

  • Establish a timeline with milestones to guide your progress.

Organize: Get Your Ducks in a Row

Once you’ve got your plan, you need to organize. This means making sure everyone knows what they’re doing and everything’s set up right. It’s like making sure you’ve packed everything you need for that road trip and that everyone knows the plan. This saves you from chaos later on.

  • Structure your team to leverage their strengths.

  • Assign responsibilities clearly to avoid confusion.

  • Set up systems for smooth communication and workflow.

Direct: Show the Way

Now, you’ve got to lead the way. This doesn’t mean micromanaging every little thing. It’s more about giving clear instructions and letting your team know you’re there to help if they hit a bump. It’s like being the driver on the road trip who keeps everyone moving forward together.

  • Communicate your vision and goals clearly to the team.

  • Motivate and inspire your team to embrace challenges.

  • Provide guidance and support, especially when the going gets tough.

Control: Keep It on Track

Lastly, you need to keep an eye on things to make sure it’s all going to plan. If something’s off track, you fix it. Think of it as checking your map and making sure you’re still heading towards your destination. If you see a roadblock ahead, you find a way around it.

  • Monitor progress regularly against your goals.

  • Be ready to adapt plans based on feedback and results.

  • Celebrate achievements and address areas needing improvement.

Why This Matters

Using PODC can really change the game. It means less time spent feeling swamped and more time doing what you love. It’s about leading in a way that makes things run smoothly, which means less stress for you and your team.

So, give PODC a try. It might just make leading a whole lot easier and free up some time for you to enjoy the view from the front seat. Who knows, with all that extra time, what new ideas you’ll come up with!
