14 The 50 percent rule California State University Employees Union 2011

15 What counts is not HOW MUCH you do, or how many different things you do, or HOW WELL you do them, but the LEVEL at which you work. California State University Employees Union 2011

16 The Legend of the Stonecutters California State University Employees Union 2011

17 Three stonecutters were working at their jobs when a passerby stopped to ask what they were doing. The first answered, “I’m cutting stone.” California State University Employees Union 2011

18 The second said “I’m building a wall.” California State University Employees Union 2011

19 And the third said, “I’m creating a cathedral.” California State University Employees Union 2011

20 Like the stonecutters, your tasks can have a different meaning depending on your perspective. Redefine your tasks toward the cathedral. California State University Employees Union 2011

21 Write down everything you do 3-4 broad categories Assign percentages of time Verbs California State University Employees Union 2011 WHERE DO I START?

23 Form a work group, meet regularly with specific goals and deadlines Finally – Show a friend! Ask them to proof your work California State University Employees Union 2011 Use Teamwork….

24 TYPES OF WORK California State University Employees Union 2011

25 Level of work Complexity (difficulty) of work Degree of independence with which you work – how are you supervised? Where does your work come from – self generated or assigned by a higher level employee? Authority to commit resources – money, labor, things Amount of independent judgment used California State University Employees Union 2011

26 TYPES OF SUPERVISION Direct Supervision – close and regular General Supervision – some delegation of responsibility, some independence in routine matters. General Direction – operates independently under broad guidelines Works as a team. Not supervised in the conventional sense. California State University Employees Union 2011

27 QUANTIFY AND SPECIFY You do what? To what or whom? To achieve what outcome? At what level of difficulty? Give examples! California State University Employees Union 2011

28 BE SPECIFIC Focus on WHAT you do and the LEVEL at which you do it NOT how much (workload) you do or how well (performance) you do it. California State University Employees Union 2011
