Slow Down, Smell The Roses

Associated Press

Are you constantly on the run in your job? Being a bundle of activity may not be the best way to do your work, says management psychologist Harry Levinson.

“I find that frenetic movement by mangers often disguises problems” such as decisions made too hastily, Levinson says in his publication The Levinson Letter.

People who are always on the go may find it hard to be part of a team, and that can work to the detriment of a company or organization.

Levinson suggests supervisors force their frenetic workers to sit still for meetings. That’ll make it easier to keep an eye on them, he says.
