Ep 5: Managing Hard Work vs Smart Work with Segun Ajiboye
Ep 5: Managing Hard Work vs Smart Work with Segun Ajiboye
Organizations and individuals are starting to place more emphasis on productivity, rather than hours worked or effort committed to work. This is simply because the appearance of working hard does not always mean you’re working most efficiently, neither does it always guarantee the results they desire. However, have we taken smart work to mean the wrong things? Can smart work really exist without hard work and more importantly, is hard work really obsolete? Segun Ajiboye sheds some light on hard vs smart work through the lens of his professional experience. He also provides tips on introducing and managing changes within your team to help them work more efficiently.
