Recently, one of our senior conference planners attended a presentation led by Australian Productivity Expert Neen James, who stressed the importance of recognizing your personal productivity times, thereby creating more efficiency in accomplishing your daily tasks.
Morning Birds are at their best from 7:00am – 1:00pm; Hummingbirds from 11:00am – 5:00pm and Night Owls from 2:00 -8:00pm. If you are a Morning Bird, don’t schedule an important client meeting for dinner; instead try for breakfast. Schedule your most important tasks for your most productive time frame and recognize that your staff may include Morning Birds, Night Owls and Hummingbirds. We, at Integress, have two of each type on staff (and a couple who fall under several). In this case, a lunch time frame is best for everyone.
Which bird are you? Do you think utilizing this theory could help increase efficiency and productivity in your office?
