Lunchtime Learning Sessions



  • What the Most Successful People Do at Work | October 27, 11:30am to 1pm
    Presenter: Bonnie Cain-Wood
    For many of us, the typical workday makes us feel like hamsters on a proverbial wheel. Plagued by crises and distractions, we work hard all day, but when we go home we’re not much closer to reaching our goals. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. In her book by the same name, author Laura Vanderkam shows how successful people employ certain daily practices to make sure their work hours are invested, not squandered. This eye-opening session will provide strategies on how to take control of your career by taking control of your workday, and subsequently make a positive impact on every other aspect of your life in the process.

    Drawing Lines: Creating Healthy Boundaries for Success | November 9, 11:30am to 1pm
    Presenter: Amie Haar
    Does your life feel like it’s occasionally spinning out of control? Learning when to say yes and how to say no are critical in regaining your control and sanity. This session will help you discern what the ‘right things’ in your life are, and how you can respectfully decline professional and personal opportunities that aren’t the best fit for you. Facilitator Amie Haar will also explore how to respect and support the boundaries held by others, and manage your relationships with boundary-breakers, so you can live a smarter, more satisfying life.

    Retreat and Focus: Using Time Together to Create the Work Culture Your Team Is Looking For | December 14, 11:30am to 1pm
    Presenter: Marcy Luter
    Your life, and the lives of your colleagues, have likely been turned inside out over the last 18 months. And as you look forward to what your team needs to accomplish in the next calendar year, maybe now is the right time to retreat and refocus. Company retreats are great for getting everyone away from the office and outside of their comfort zone. The result is often renewed energy and a revived sense of community among team members that can result in a positive shift in your company’s culture and a renewed excitement in working together to accomplish your team’s daily duties. When done right, this time together can encourage everyone to step out of the details and focus on the big-picture elements that contribute to the company’s success. What does this look like for your team? Explore essential aspects of retreat planning and how to plan one that fits your team's culture and budget.
