ARRM Leadership Institute: Workshop 2

ARRM Leadership Institute: Workshop 2

Productivity, Personal Priorities and Mindset, Technology Resources

Managing Me; Professor Art Hill
Most people struggle keeping up with the flood of “stuff” in their world (e-mails, phone calls, meetings, reports, and commitments) that far exceed their mental and emotional capacities. As a result of this flood, they lose track of their goals and experience stress, worry, and guilt – and are far less productive than they could be. The Managing Me (MM) workshop takes the latest research about personal productivity, makes it practical, and creates an engaging experience that helps people apply the life-changing principles. MM teaches six foundational skills that people need to succeed in today’s knowledge intensive world. People who develop these six skills will be more focused on the right priorities, meet their commitments more faithfully, have a greater sense of accomplishment about both personal and professional goals, improve relationships at home and work, reduce stress, worry, and guilt, be healthier emotionally, mentally, and physically -- and get more “good things” done. The MM seminar is supported by a 15-minute on-line Managing Me skill assessment survey. This assessment can be found at Professor Hill provides a 22-page benchmark report to all respondents. 

Self-Care for Compassionate Careers; Jessica Gallo
This workshop is not about bath bombs and herbal tea. Supporting self-care within mission-driven work can often seem out-of-reach. Self-care for caregivers? Next to impossible. However, for compassionate organizations — without a dollar, a minute, or any well-being to sacrifice — self-care is crucial. And the good news is that the best self-care is free.
This workshop will help you refresh your mindset to stop hovering at the edge of burnout. Pulling from transformational research in neuroscience, emotional intelligence and mindfulness, we’ll ditch the to-do lists and create a vision for how to feel better—now. We will identify our unique stress reactions to customize that illusive “where to start” place. We will outline simple action steps to begin immediately — and inspire others to follow. The goal is to emerge from the room feeling refreshed to go forward in your compassionate role, taking care of yourself along the way.

Technology and the TRC; Alan Berner
Technology is an important part of not only what is happening in the world, but it is an integral part of where services are going in the state of Minnesota. In this session, Alan will introduce the role of technology in providing services today and into the future. Participants will receive and in-depth tour through ARRM’s Technology Resource Center (TRC) and an introduction to how to use these tools when planning for services. Participants will leave with a functional understanding of the resource as well as be provided with information on how to continue to be a part of the conversation around technology moving forward.
