Smart Talk for Business Leaders: Time Management and “Working Clean”
The Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring you this monthly program to help you grow and reach your goals in a supportive and energizing environment! Each month, a maximum of 20 business leaders will come together to discuss various topics in a virtual roundtable environment. An experienced facilitator will run each meeting, but the focus is on you! Bring your issues, skills, and experience to the table as the group members help each other work through challenges, provide constructive feedback, and share best practices for greater success!
Join us for an interactive discussion about organization and time management. Conceptually, your time has two dimensions that are interrelated – hours and energy. We’ll talk about what can prevent us from using our time effectively and techniques to enhance our time management. We’ll also talk about concepts from the book Work Clean by Dan Charnas. In Work Clean, Charnas shows how the chef’s practice of “mise-en-place”, a French culinary term meaning “everything in its place” can be applied to our daily lives to make us more effective personally and professionally.
A typical agenda will include brief introductions, 45-50 minutes of facilitated discussion on a given topic, and 5-10 minutes to reflect on goals or what you will do next given the conversation.
About Your Facilitator: Virginia Crocker Timmins, founder of Soundboard Advisors LLC, is a certified business and executive coach, speaker and professional facilitator dedicated to helping individuals and organizations achieve improved results and higher levels of success. A piano soundboard represents an inside-out transformation, where the string vibrations inside the instrument are converted to the music we hear on the outside. In an analogous manner, Virginia applies inside-out, structured, and tailorable development methods. This approach creates behavior changes that enable people to tap into their full potential, become more effective, achieve success, and sustain purpose and balance in their lives. Virginia has over 33 years of experience in large company, small business, entrepreneurial, turnaround and non-profit environments guiding individuals and organizations through complex and dynamic situations to successful outcomes.
