Details and Workshop Objectives

 Why Attend a Together Leader Workshop?

Effective leading requires strong planning, time and task management, and organizational systems. Without a clear system to sort through the daily deluge, you can easily lose sight of what you need to accomplish on your team. The cost of not having a plan for how you spend your limited “free” time is enormous. Your stakeholders suffer, you bottleneck your colleagues, you sleep too little, and you feel overwhelmed—a dreadful combination that doesn’t help anyone. Thankfully, with some intentionality, routines, and habits, it is possible to be an effective leader—and have a life!

Intended Audience:

This workshop is open to anyone who manages people in a mission-driven context, whether a nonprofit, education-related nonprofit, school district office, school principal, or central office leader. Participants should manage other people. Please note that this is not a session designed for teachers or individual contributors.

You Will Learn To:

  • Consolidate your many calendars (testing, holidays and more!) into one Comprehensive Calendar
  • Track long-term to-do’s and ideas through a Later List
  • Plot how to use your limited amount of “free time” each week through the personalized design of a Weekly Worksheet
  • Identify simple methods for paper and electronic organization for desk, transport, and reference
  • Identify your own habits (the good and the bad), preference for paper or technology, and awareness of energy levels to support a strong organization system
  • Fight those demons called perfectionism, procrastination, and distraction
