Think your daily schedule is packed?
According to a survey of C-Suite executives conducted by Entrepreneur’s John Rampton and the Center for Management and Organization Effectiveness, business leaders spend roughly 2.44 hours per day in meetings or conference calls but less than two hours on personal tasks and projects.
The survey asked 267 C-Suite executives (vice presidents or higher) from Fortune 500 companies including Adobe, American Express, Bank of America, Johnson and Johnson and Twitter about their work habits and how they spent their time before, during and after work hours. Some of the results may not surprise you – the typical corporate leader wakes up early and goes to bed late – but also revealed some interesting habits as well.
For instance, respondents spent an average of about two hours and 25 minutes per day texting and emailing, but only about an hour on work-related tasks and projects. The survey also found that leaders spend an average of 45 minutes on exercise and fitness and 50 minutes for breaks, including lunch.
Also interesting: leaders experienced an average of 12 interruptions per day, traveled four days per month and stayed with the same company for roughly six years.
Rampton and Chris Stowell, VP of the Center for Management and Organization Effectiveness, developed the infographic below to illustrate their findings:
