Chris Bennett, M. Div.; Associate Consultant and Facilitator at The Spark Mill -- Time management is crucial for nonprofit leaders! In this class, participants will engage two different aspects of time management: personal time management and meeting management. With personal time management we’ll look at several different strategies and tools to help participants structure and steward their time. Participants will then use all they have learned to design a time-management system that that will work for them. Then, we’ll pivot to explore meeting management best practices. We’ll discuss why and when to have meetings, how to create productive agendas, and strategies to keep meetings moving along. Come learn about methodologies/principles of time-management based on concepts from Getting Things Done by David Allen, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, and Death by Meeting by Patrick Lencioni. Strategies will include: Time-blocking, weekly review, context-based to-do lists, prioritization matrix, agenda creation, meeting facilitation; Tools & Time Management Hacks: Digital (Software/device) and analog (paper) tools (i.e. Evernote, Google Calendar, Outlook, Apple Calendar, paper calendars, journals, Tickler Files, etc.).
