When it comes to the greatest challenges leaders face, one that stands out is the need to effectively manage time in moments of fast-paced, unrelenting change, and knowing how to respond to rapidly shifting business conditions and priorities. In response to this challenge, change management principles provide a foundation for the application of best practices in time management, enabling higher levels of connection, success, innovation, productivity, and satisfaction.
What effects have the pandemic had on the workplace? How have the many changes at work affected individuals and teams? Where will you find the time to do what’s most important each day?
“The only thing that’s certain is change.” Change is everywhere, it’s constant, and it can cause confusion and difficulty for leaders, managers and employees at all levels of an organization. Whether it’s a new departmental policy or procedure, an updated software system, the latest directive from above, or new guidelines or restrictions related to COVID-19, being prepared for a change makes the difference in achieving productivity and success. This workshop begins with an examination of the dynamics of change, offers a model for what to expect when changes are introduced, and guides participants in planning for smooth transitions in future situations.
From the foundational focus on managing change, the workshop then takes a deep dive into time management, reviewing current and best practices, grounding in core values clarification, and introducing new skills to help focus on priorities, get organized, and stay on track during times of transition. Students will discover how to identify and attain long-term goals, both personally and professionally, and laser-focus activities on a daily basis to help manage priorities and reach these goals, with an outcome of greater connection, productivity, satisfaction, and enhanced workplace relationships.
Who Should Attend:
Leaders, executives, and managers.
Individuals experiencing change in the workplace and beyond.
Anyone seeking more time to engage in top priorities.
Those seeking clarity, direction, and tools for greater connection, productivity, satisfaction, and enhanced workplace relationships.
Understanding and managing change is a fundamental skillset in today’s workplace and beyond. Using a theory-to-practice approach, this workshop guides participants in recognizing and navigating transition wherever it occurs. With that foundation, the focus shifts to time management tools for individual utilization and team benefit; students will learn to recognize where their time goes and will become more effective leaders by planning and implementing life balance techniques that reflect their core values and beliefs. In so doing, each participant can deepen connection to community, master tasks for greater productivity, and improve their relationships both at work and outside of the workplace. With mastery of change and time management, the workshop concludes with application opportunities, including meeting management and delegation skills, to assist students in overcoming their greatest time-wasters in order to maximize each day.
