Order from Chaos


I am trying to develop a manager who is [self confessed]scatty and badly organised. Does anyone have any games / activities / Powerpoint materials they know works?

I'm working down the "personal analysis" route and incorporating learning styles etc.

Any views?

  1. coaching/book?
    From what you say, I would have thought some coaching based around a good new book on Time Management (e.g. Dave Allen ‘Getting Things Done’ or an older one ‘Staying OK’Amy Harris et al, would be of greater significance than the activities you indicated.
    Hope this helps

  2. Being Your Own Coach
    I have some great self assesssments/exercises that I use when coaching individuals on becoming more structured in the way they approach things as well as uncovering those things that drain not only themselves but also their time. Being more organised with your self and your time is definitely a discipline that needs to be practised so don’t expect any quick fixes. If you let me have your e-mail address I can send them to you.

  3. second vote for Getting things done
    I’d also back the David Allen book on getting things done. Visit their web site at

    Scatty and badly organised is my natural state and I’ve found lots of value using this book. There are a lot of other web resources out there, search for GTD.
