Efficiency of the week

Efficiency of the week


  • Develop your daily operational efficiency.


This sheet will help you to take a step back from your weekly activity, your ability to pursue your objectives and to link strategy with operations, through the day-to-day work of the position you hold.


During your next week, take an hour to ask yourself these questions:

1. Effectiveness/efficiency

  • How would you rate your effectiveness this week? Did you achieve your goals?
  • How did you do it? What worked? What didn't work?
  • What will you do again? What will you do differently?
  • What distracted you from your goal?
  • What need do these distractions meet?
  • Who can support you next week?

2. Influence on others

  • What impact have you had on your manager, colleagues, clients or anyone you come into contact with?
  • How would you rate this impact?
  • On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your impact on these different people.
  • Is this impact aligned with what you want?
  • If not, what can you learn from them?

3. Motivation

  • What was the most enjoyable work activity/moment of the week?
  • How often were you really passionate about your work?
  • How often were you really bored during your work?
  • What challenged you this week?
  • How did you experience this challenge?

4. Confidence - stress

Did you feel confident this week? On a scale of 1 to 10 :

  • What were the moments of negative stress?
  • How did you deal with them? What did you learn?
  • Have you been critical / negative of yourself this week?
  • What were the moments when you felt confident?
  • What helps you in these moments?
  • What do you really want to experience again next week?

It is of course possible to split this work into one group of questions per week: effectiveness/efficiency - influence - motivation - confidence/stress.

5. Now it's your turn to act.

  • Alternate pleasant activities with less pleasant ones.
  • Reward yourself after an activity that seems to be of little interest to you etc.
