Control your own schedule and focus on your most important work.
Is your endless to-do list keeping you from doing what’s most important? We all have responsibilities and tasks that are competing for our attention, but most often, our two or three most important efforts are reduced to just another item on the list.
Join us for this webcast to learn strategies and exercises that will teach you the discipline needed to protect your time and your schedule, allowing you to give the most focus to your biggest priorities.
Who Should Attend
This material will be applicable to any higher education professional looking to be more efficient, purposeful, and productive.
Before the session, we will ask you to pull a representative two-week period from your calendar and complete a short exercise. Armed with these pieces, we will work through several exercises together during the webcast:
Section 1: Assess Your Productivity
Using the calendar sample that you brought to the webcast, you will audit the percent of time dedicated to your five focus areas. You’ll become more aware of how your choices affect the structure of your calendar and determine what is or isn’t getting the most of your time and attention.
Section 2: Build a Purposeful Schedule
Using your focus areas and time audit, you will build daily and weekly schedules that support a sharp focus and purposeful work.
We will wrap up the session with strategies for holding yourself accountable so that you can stick to the schedule and priorities realized during the webcast.
