Virtual Lunch & Learn
Based on our Myers Briggs preferences we are either good at making lists, keeping track of various things, handling details or we make lists but misplace them, have an idea of what needs to get done by when and maybe grasping the necessary details. This luncheon break asks participants to think seriously about what they do with the 168 hours a week. How is time spent? How should some hours be spent for personal health? How often do we say “I’d like to but am swamped or too busy”. No finger pointing during this lunch time, just time to take a serious look at how each participant spends their 168 hours a week along with making sure they have ‘time for themselves’ during the week. Ideally each participant should bring what they consider ‘their planner’ whether it be digital or paper version.
Do certain habits ‘take away’ time simply because you’ve always done a certain thing at a certain time?
Is there time for “you” personally multiple times during the week? Month?
Have you found yourself saying “I do love her/him” but have not had time to call and let them know or see how they are doing?
A healthy lifestyle is important and how I spend my 168 hours is a factor.
I’ve been doing it myself for a while so why delegate?

At work, people express and receive appreciation in different ways. If you try to express appreciation in ways that aren’t meaningful to your co-workers, they may not feel valued at all. This is because you and your co-workers are speaking different languages.
In The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace training, we will help you identify the five languages of appreciation in order to:
– Express genuine appreciation to co-workers and staff — even on a tight budget.
– Increase loyalty with the employees and volunteers in your organization.
– Reduce cynicism and create a more positive work environment.
– Improve your ability to show appreciation for difficult colleagues.
– Convey the language of physical touch in appropriate ways.
Build more positive relationships within your team.
Reduce cynicism, sarcasm, and distrust among coworkers.
Increase trust and your understanding of each other’s differences.
Create a more enjoyable work environment for management, staff, and volunteers
