To move from a reactive approach

With reactive management, also called "firefighting," managers spend most of their time dealing with problems instead of focusing on long-term planning.
Reactive management is stressful and inefficient. It can lead to high staff turnover in your team, and, in time, will lead to serious under-performance.
To move from a reactive approach to a more proactive one:
  • Take back control of time.
  • Look at processes.
  • Understand and manage risk.
  • Focus on morale.
  • Build in continuous improvement.
Keep in mind that reactive management is necessary at times. However, it can be destructive when it becomes the norm in a team or organization
