Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about procrastination: I feel as though I am spending 50% of my efforts on follow through due to no response–a huge waste of time.
Please help me with a communication problem. I am a manager for promotion and outreach in the music department at a university. My responsibility includes scheduling campus performances and planning music tours for ensemble groups. After three years of trying to figure out how to light a fire under procrastinators, I am ready to give up. I send e-mails, I leave voice mails, and I put documentation in their office mailbox asking for their instructions or decision that impacts an upcoming performance or tour. I feel as though I am spending 50% of my efforts on follow through due to no response–a huge waste of time.
