Concurrent LEC Sessions - Tier 1 - Supervising Excellence:

  LEC Course 1 - Part 1 - Setting Priorities from the Inside Out
Speaker: Shana Young, The Leadership Institute at Columbus State University 

Why is it so hard to follow through on time management/priority setting advice? Most programs or books offer tips and advice, but gloss over the practical implementation. They say, “Increase your productivity and fill each moment with activity” or “simplify, simplify, simplify”. We know everyone is different - some like a fast pace; others like a slower one; some people are night owls; others are at their best in the morning; some people love structure; others thrive on spontaneity and flexibility. In this session we will learn about and use a system created by Julie Morgenstern dubbed “The Queen of putting people’s lives in order” by USA Today to develop your big picture view, find out what’s holding you back, design a plan that fits your personality, makes choices about & take ownership in your schedule and your life.
