020 Valuing Other People’s Time – ProductivityCast

Augusto received mistakenly a letter from his local municipality, and the time-wasting process began of fixing another person’s mistakes. And, yes, people will make mistakes. You will make mistakes. But, the deeper issue here is valuing other people’s time. There are many issues when respecting and understanding the productive value of other people's time. And, in this cast, we guide you on how to be more productive when valuing other people's time and helping them understand how to value yours.

Enjoy! Give us feedback! And, thanks for listening!
