Past Events

We have enjoyed the following list of programs and events:

  • 10 May 2018 – Flow-based Leadership in TechComm

    Judith L. Glick-Smith, Ph.D. described what flow is and what flow-based decision making and flow-based leadership look like. She also detailed a flow-based leadership model for implementation, based on an extreme, experiential training program in the fire service called Georgia Smoke Diver (GSD). GSD’s success and longevity is a result of rigorous commitment to this model that helps firefighters stay safe, ensure excellence, and live a life of well-being, both personally and professionally. It is a model any organization can adopt to better the lives of the people within the organization and the lives of the people the organization serves. For more information about this program, see the What the Best Firefighters Can Teach You about Leadership and Making Hard Decisions blog article.

  • 28 Mar 2018 – Press Play! The Power of Personal Energy Management

    Cindy Currie, a senior program manager at DXC Technology, joined us for our March program. Managing your personal energy, both professionally and personally, is key to getting your life in order and performing well without feeling depleted when you’re done. We all have a personal energy rhythm that lends itself to performing well during periods of peak energy buffered by periods of rest and renewal – yes, like a cell phone battery, we all need to fully recharge. Cindy shared how to manage your personal energy in ways that foster increased capacity and high performance!

  • 15 Feb 2018 – Prioritizing the Pressure through Better Time Management

    Alyssa Fox was the speaker for this initial program! Why do people talk about work/life balance? Work is a part of our lives, whether we like it or not. I know, people are really talking about balancing your work responsibilities and time with your personal responsibilities and time, but it is still a funny thought. Regardless of what we call it, the struggle is real — how do we handle the obligations in every area of our lives in a way that satisfies the people involved and keeps us from burning out? Join me to discuss some things that might help.
