OD - Organizational Development module

CoachingOurselves: Reflection Cafe - Managing Time and Energy

Duration: 0.25 days
Target population: All staff members in management and excluded positions
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
These 90-minute lunch time peer-coaching sessions provide a unique opportunity to talk and reflect on issues you face at McGill. In groups of 4-6 participants, discussions are guided by a facilitator and cover over 80 CoachingOurselves modules. The facilitator can be an HR professional, coach or one of the participants themselves (self-directed sessions). This framework, created by Dr. Henry Mintzberg and Phil LeNir, is a proven process to catalyze informal and social learning in organizations. Topic themes range from engaging and strengthening teams, to enhancing communication, driving change, basic management skills and strategic thinking. Sessions can also be arranged within your team or across your Faculty or Unit.
Work is not just about making brilliant decisions. It is also about how we manage our time and energy, individually and as a team. Almost everyone feels there is not enough time in a day, but there are days when we feel “Wow, we got a lot done”. How do we make that happen more often? Sometimes the problem isn’t lack of time at all, it’s lack of energy. When we are at our best we can zip through a project, but when we are tired or uninspired the hours go by but not a lot is accomplished.

The objectives for this session are to:

• Identify how we currently manage our time
• Learn how to work with our natural rhythms so we can maximize
creative and productive work
• Reflect on ways we can work to make the most of time and energy.
