From Busy To Intentional: Managing Your Work Life for Greater Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Joy (CATDC Online)

This online series will be held from 9:00-12:00am each day.

How can I be less “busy” so that I actually feel like I am getting something done? How can I be less reactive and more strategic? How can I add value rather than just reply to email? If these questions feel familiar and even more pressing during Shelter In Place, do not merely hope that next school year will be any different – as President Obama said, “Hope is not a strategy.”

Instead, kick off your summer with this interactive workshop on value, time, and project management. Over the course of two days you will learn and, importantly, put into practice, strategies for work efficiency. Andrew Davis, a practitioner and evangelist of multiple productivity and time management tools, as well as local Head of School, will help you find the blend of strategies that will make your summer and 2020-21 school year more productive and rewarding.

Workshop Focus:

  • Value mapping: Defining our “mission” work and clarifying our “maintenance” work.

  • Project and calendar management: Keeping all the balls up in the air and moving in the right direction.

  • Email: Shifting email from a burden to an effective tool for communication

  • Workspace & Screen Management: Establishing an effective “mise” with everything in its place for success with a new twist for working from home

  • Maintenance: Maintaining good habits as the volume increases when students, colleagues, and parents return in August.

Our work will be grounded in David Allen’s “Getting Things Done,” Merlin Mann’s “Inbox Zero,” and numerous researchers and writers in the productivity space.

While this workshop is intended for anyone who feels too busy, it will be most effective for those who have projects to complete, multiple constituents to manage, and discretion in how they use their time. Attending with more than one person from your school will increase your chances of keeping these systems – and their benefits – alive during the next school year.

Participants will need a full inbox of email to triage (don’t we all have that?), and will also, ideally, have projects or goals in mind for the summer or 2020-21 school year.

This workshop series will be held online via Zoom and will be recorded for CATDC's archives. By registering for this event you are consenting to be recorded and photographed by CATDC.
