There are some exciting changes underway at the Career Advancement Blog, and to celebrate, we’re giving you the chance to win a copy of Joel Garfinkle’s career coaching book, Getting Ahead.

But first, let’s talk about the changes.

Starting Thursday, July 26, we’ll be publishing two weekly columns: Q&A with Joel on Mondays and Real Leaders, Real Stories on Thursdays.

Everyone likes a good story, and we know you’ve got some good ones to tell. Here’s your chance to share your leadership story with other leaders. Let us know if you’d like to be featured in our Real Leaders, Real Stories column, and we’ll make it happen. You can write it yourself or one of our writers can help you put your story into words.

The stories in this column will have something to do with leadership or career advancement and will include action items or tips to help other leaders learn from your experiences. Click here to submit your story idea.

Q&A with Joel is just what it sounds like—a chance for you to ask career and leadership questions and get answers from an experienced executive coach. Ask your questions in the comment section of the latest Q&A with Joel column, and each week, Joel will select one question to answer in his next column. To get things started, can comment with a question on this post, and Joel will use one of those questions for his first Q&A.

    Q/A: I’m actually going back to school to make a career change. My question has to do with a specific skill, multitasking. I am horrible at it. Can anyone in management still be a great leader w/o multitasking skills?

    • A great question, Chris, and a concern that is shared by many. Frankly, multitasking is highly overrated, and can often lead to high levels of stress, poor communication, and substandard work. Instead of trying to do two or three things at once, try managing your time by batching similar tasks. For example, don’t jump from email to phone call to meeting. Instead, set aside a specific time to answer emails. Let your voice mail or an assistant collect your phone messages and return calls once or twice a day. Whatever you are doing, stay in the moment and give it your full attention. Your stress level will go down and your productivity will go up.
