Episode 97: Discover Your Unique Productivity Style Part 3 – The Conductor 1


In the 3rd episode our 4 part series on productivity styles we introduce The Conductor. If you’re just starting with this episode, you’ll probably want to jump back to parts 1 and 2 – the Commander and the Contemplator – to get the full picture.

Introducing the Conductor:

Until we can manage time, we can manage nothing… – Peter F. Drucker

Gifts & Challenges

  • As the Conductor you are passionate about bringing out the best in people and supporting them to shine. You are great at organizing and finishing projects that are clearly outlined by others.
  • As a creative, you are not always great at getting your own work done or making time for your own creative projects. In fact, you often spend more time dreaming about uninterrupted creative time than actually making it happen.
  • As a leader of a business, you work hard to create a work environment that is harmonious, peaceful and free of conflict. Because you are so people focused, you can sometimes put off getting to important tasks and avoid conflicts that are costing you time and money in your business.
  • You tend to put the needs of others before your own which leads to feeling overwhelmed and exhausted, especially as you play catch up with your long to-do list of tasks at the end of an already full day. You fall into bed wondering if you will ever get to that creative project you keep talking about.
  • You benefit from being held accountable by others because you can lack internal discipline or motivation to complete tasks on your own. What’s the fun in working alone? You thrive when you have accountability systems or buddies to be responsible to.

Your opportunities for growth

To increase productivity for Conductors, look at your personal boundaries first. If you want to grow and scale your business, you must learn to put your own needs first and step into a leadership role. This can be a tricky change so start small and look at who in your life or business you need to set healthy boundaries with.

  • Set clear personal and professional boundaries around your time.
  • Claim time in your calendar for uninterrupted creative time to work on your passion projects. Use time blocking – one of our favorite tools
  • Surround yourself with team members or loyal supporters who see your unique brilliance and help keep you on track in your business.
  • Get help in your personal life with details like housekeeping, gardening or shopping so you are free to focus on your business and self-care. This could be as simple as asking a spouse, child or roommate to step up and do more.
  • Create a daily step-by-step strategy for growing your business that is easy to complete and doesn’t overwhelm you.
  • Involve others in the process so that you don’t feel isolated or alone.
