ZPDC 635 - Juggling Multiple Priorities
This hands-on working session allows you to bring your individual challenges into the workshop and walk out with ideas and insight on how to plan, schedule and accomplish more in the time you have. You're undoubtedly thinking you don?t have time to take a class - you're juggling multiple, diverse responsibilities all while walking a tightrope. Everything has to go right or you're sunk, but dealing with the unexpected is inevitable, and there you are putting out fires again. Unlike a class, this is an experiential workshop in which the instructor will mentor participants as they apply new approaches and concepts to their own real-world situations. This class is not about using organizational tools and apps for a quick fix. Instead, you will re-evaluate what YOU do, how YOU do it, and most importantly, come away with strategies for how YOU CAN GET IT DONE MORE EFFECTIVELY. Best time you?ll expend all year.?
