I have co-designed and will co-facilitate with Jessica Lax, a HUB Masterclass on Increase Your Impact Per Hour, which will take place at Hub Ottawa on 5 March 2014 from 09:00 to 10:30. To register, please click here
INCREASE YOUR IMPACT PER HOUR
Struggling with a never ending to do list?
Ineffective meetings swallowing your day?
Stop stretching yourself thin by always trying to do more.
Get the tools to start doing the RIGHT work at the RIGHT time,
In the social sector we scrutinize every dollar we spend and find amazingly creative ways to cut our costs. But when it comes to our time – a resource that is just as scarce – that scrutiny often falls short. This course will help you get the most impact per hour and give you the tools you need to get in control of how you spend your time.
In this class you’ll learn how to deal with the most common time vacuums and come away with tools to :
- tame your inbox,
- increase the return on the time you invest in meetings,
- visualize your workflow so you can maximize your finite attention,
- and connect with an accountability group so you’ll stick to it!
To help you learn which approaches are really increasing your productivity, you’ll also receive instructions to set up a time tracker one week before the class. You’ll then capture before and after data on how you spend your time to determine which productivity tools are helping you make the most of your most valuable resource.
Get the tools to reclaim your email, your meetings, your attention, and most importantly, your impact!
Who will get the most value from this class?
This class is targeted to professionals in any field who are open to new ways to optimise their work flow. Some familiarity with technology will be asset for time tracking purposes.
Who will be leading the class?
To ensure that each class provides a learning experience that supercharges your impact, classes are co-designed and co-facilitated by a topic expert and the HUB Masterclass Curator, Jessica Lax. For this class, we are excited to bring on Pascal Venier as the topic expert. See the bios below for more info.
Topic Expert: Pascal Venier
Pascal helps knowledge workers become more effective by optimizing their workflow and implementing Agile and Lean thinking. A personal student of productivity for more than 20 years, Pascal made the transition to becoming a coach in personal effectiveness once he saw the impact productivity training can have on someone’s long term success. Pascal is currently completing the French translation of Personal Kanban: Mapping Work | Navigating Life, a book which has been awarded the Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence. When Pascal isn’t seeking out new ways to get more out of our hours, he can be found sharing his passion for personal effectiveness on his blog and on twitter @pascalvenier.
Masterclass Curator: Jessica Lax
Jessica’s goal is to maximize the impact of the social sector by changing the way the sector learns. She’s been drawn to this work since 2002 when she co-founded her first organization, The Otesha Project, wishing that something like HUB Masterclass existed. She combines her experience as a curriculum designer, facilitator, professional public speaker, playwright and actor, consultant and coach for nonprofits, and a social entrepreneurship MBA at Oxford, to design and curate HUB Masterclass.
How will a HUB Masterclass help me ‘do good better’?
Studies report that the average person only retains about 5% of the material presented in a lecture. To really up your game that's simply not good enough.
Your time and money are scarce resources and when you invest them in HUB Masterclass you are getting a lot more than a lecture. Every class combines the best of instructional design and insanely useful content to ensure that you not only retain the information, but walk away knowing how to apply it to change the way you work.
You’ll be challenged to clarify your goals, glean real life insights from your peers, start applying what you learn right in class, and walk away with concrete tools to immediately put into action. After the class you’ll be given access to an online bulletin board where the instructor and your peers can share resources for a deep dive into the class content and share examples of how you are applying what you’ve learned to your work.
HUB Masterclass offers professional development that works. Stop learning on the fly and let HUB Masterclass help you ‘do good better’.
What does being a ‘class backer’ mean?
HUB Masterclass is designed to be both responsive and lean. The ten pilot classes were voted on by the community and only those that get 20 ‘backers’ or registrations three weeks before the class date will go into production. If we don’t get enough backers all registrations will be refunded.
So if you want to take this class, spread the word, encourage your peers to jump on board, and be sure to register before the deadline!
