Multi-Tasking: Set Goals for your Employees. Here are some examples:

  • Decide on a distinct set of tasks that one needs to accomplish and stick to them, and put additional related tasks on a new list for next time
  • Bundle related tasks together in order to move fluidly between them
  • Classify tasks according to importance and urgency in order to get an idea of what can wait and what needs to be done immediately
  • Use tools and apps such as tangible reminders that help one to keep focused on the tasks at hand
  • Create time for the most important task of the day before one sits down to multi-task
  • Assign complex tasks or projects for the time one is most productive such as early in the morning
  • Give full attention to the task that one is doing to avoid spending more time than estimated and increase efficiency
  • Give each task a specific deadline or short amount of time in order to remain focused
  • Become effective at switching tasks and release all emotional energy attached to the task once it has been completed
  • Make to-do lists and get the most tedious tasks ticked off before embarking on the more interesting ones

Multi-Tasking: Improve and master this core skill with these ideas

  • Make a to-do list. Before you start your day, it is important to create a to-do list for the day including what is set before you. This list will help you prioritize and focus on the day's expectations working hard to accomplish them.
  • Prioritize. Everyone should be able to have a clear understanding of what functions is a priority to the management. Once realized, focus more attention on accomplishing what needs to be done promptly. Ensure that your priority list matches that of the management so you can be on the same page with your supervisor.
  • Solve tasks in small blocks. By organizing priorities, we can address the tasks provided. Similar functions can be grouped to be worked on at the same time minimizing time wasted.
  • Avoid any distractions. When working on several tasks (multitasking) minimize any distractions to concentrate and focus on the right tasks.
  • Delegating. Assess and prioritize the tasks that you do personally and delegate the tasks that you cannot do on your own, that's the work spirit that should be cultivated.
