Manage Your Time and Energy: A Path to Personal Sustainability: March 16, 2017

January 6, 2017

Your time is a precious resource that can be analyzed and planned to maximize its potential. How you spend your time, however, has much to do with how you manage your energy. The Greater New Orleans Foundation Organizational Effectiveness is partnering with CompassPoint on a new workshop: Manage Your Time and Energy: A Path to Personal Sustainability.

Manage Your Time and Energy: A Path to Personal Sustainability
Thursday, March 16, 2017
9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Center for Philanthropy
919 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA 70130

Designed for Executive Directors and senior level staff, in this workshop we’ll look at the intersection of both: time management and energy management. We’ll begin with self-awareness exercises to identify the factors that are causing you stress and hindering your personal sustainability. Using the principles from Getting Things Done you’ll learn tactics for better self-organization, calendaring and planning. And drawing on the work from The Power of Full Engagement, we’ll explore the principles of energy management for a healthier and balanced life.

Learning objectives:

  • Increased self-awareness about how you are spending your time currently and identifying the factors that are hindering personal sustainability.
  • Understanding Energy Management: the four core energy needs: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual and their connection to personal sustainability.
  • Understanding Time management and its role in supporting Energy Management: Learn strategies and tactics for better personal organization.
  • With input from peers, identify a plan with a set of personal practices to help sustain you in your work.
