Date and Time
Provided by Learning and Development
(Continuation of Managing Me at Home, some repetition, more advanced version).
Most people, when faced with change, uncertainty and pressure to go faster, plan less. Yet the productive, agile response is to stop, think and plan more – shorter planning cycles, more frequent check-ins, and of course, more contingency planning. This highly engaging virtual session will provide you with immensely practical planning strategies to help you thrive in the new game of constant change.
Priority Mapping (intermediate planning). -Stopping, thinking and adjusting for change. Reconciling changing priorities with long term strategy and direction. Making thoughtful (not reactive) choices about what is and what is not a priority for the month ahead. -Creating a Priority Map. Translating our strategic priorities into clear, meaningful, actionable objectives for the month ahead. -Powerful Aligning Questions. Not assuming, but rather checking and double checking with our leader and team so that we’re clear, confident and working off of the same page.
Paying Priorities First (weekly/daily planning). -How to apply smart strategies for proactively carving out time for our key strategic priorities. (instead of waiting for a “good time” when there’s nothing else to do, and no more change or uncertainty.) -New planning disciplines for a new game. Highly practical tips and best practices to help us bring increased focus, agility and consistency to our planning.
Triaging change. How to prioritize, and if necessary, push back on, incoming tasks, requests and issues. -How to “resist the noise” of technology (email, IM, Social Media) and create small windows of high quality, undistracted focus time. -Good questions and other strategies to help us diplomatically push back on lower priority requests and tangents.
