Teri Escobar and Bill Mains
In The Myth of Multitasking author Dave Crenshaw invites us on a journey with his fictional leader Helen. You will easily recognize the chaos that fills Helen's day as your own. As dependable leaders here at SCU we recognize that decreasing demands on our time is an impossibility. Crenshaw says, "You are now living in a world where you [don't even] have time to get time." Crenshaw believes that "you do have that time, it's just getting lost in the seams" and his book The Myth of Multitasking reads like a short FAQ on how to find that time again.
In this workshop we will explore how the five practices of exemplary leadership (from The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner) align with Crenshaw's practices in Myth of Multitasking. We will also provide several 'best practices' you can use to make technology work harder for you.
Join Bill, Teri, and fellow SCU leaders in taking Crenshaw's Multitasking Challenge and decide for yourself if multitasking is an effective and efficient way of working. If managing your time better was on your New Year's resolution list, this workshop is for you.
