Here’s your chance to gain some leadership skills and build your resume while having a great time. Join Kent Campus Student Life for the ‘Build a Better You!’ program Thursdays, 2pm-3pm, January 17-March 21, 2013 in E-104 (refreshments will be provided). Topics range from getting to know yourself better to time management to values and ethics to putting your best face forward on social media and more. Attend at least six of the nine scheduled topics to earn your official ‘Build a Better You!’ certificate and recognition at the annual Student Awards Program in April.
January 31’s program is Extreme Time Management with Dr. Jose Lepervanche.
Time is one thing in the world that we cannot change. Information, communications, family, friends, and work overload our time. We fill our day with activities that overwhelm our capacity to handle them. We need extreme time management methods to cope with stress, unproductivity, and procrastination.
Time survivors keep them busy without losing sanity. Busy people always have time to do more. Lazy people always complain about the things they cannot do. Managers select busy people when assembling successful teams.
Personal Leadership System (c) developed by Dr. Lepervanche is based on beliefs, values, priorities, lifelong project management, effective delegation, and technology usage to simplify life and work.
While the majority of the ‘Build a Better You!’ programs are open to all, some programs have space limitations and will be first come, first served.
TEDxFSCJ Learning Adventures continue after our TEDxFSCJ Salon linking our educational topics with the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). This term Leadership students pre-selected 10 TED Talks related to Leadership, Social Responsibility, and Global Goals. They defended their pre-selections during class and voted for the top three. This week we will have a Roundtable to discuss about the selected videos and how they are contributing with one or more of the 17 SDGs. TED-Ed Lessons will be created with the three videos to be used next term.
Know your Strengths to find Opportunities.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
What if you were told not to follow your passion, rather to bring it alongside with you? Countless motivational speakers, successful people and even our parents tell us to follow our passion. Could they all be wrong? Today’s Daily Dose shared by PragerU and narrated by Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs explains how not following your passion can lead to finding it in the end.
Mike shares a story with us about missed opportunity, explaining how our happiness does not always depend of the type of job we perform. He shares a story of a septic tank entrepreneur who became financially successful and did so because the market was untapped, not because it was his passion! So, Mike continues to tell us that many awesome opportunities are available to us while we are still discovering and nurturing our passion. Don’t pass…
