Fueling our Motivation. Planners, Productivity and Purpose

Get clear! Shake up your habits! Know your tribe!

This was the message that attendees left with after our Planners, Productivity and Purpose session on Feb. 6 at Vantage Venues.

Jen Schrafft, a professional coach, worked in the event industry for 15 years when she realized she was burning out and wanted to help smart, hardworking professionals who might also be spinning their wheels. In our session, Schrafft provided inspiration and a different perspective on looking and dealing with work and life challenges. During this workshop in groups of two, the issues were presented and shared and possible actions were discussed. Attendees then looked for any and all barriers to taking these actions and then crafted an action plan together.

Attendees re-evaluated their purpose as a planner, their why, and re-created their productivity plan based on it. Attendees left the session with the tools to customize their own action plan and move from productivity to purpose. An added bonus to this session is that Schrafft held a follow-up call with all those that attended the workshop a week later. She continued the "coach approach" discussion, which provided the opportunity for follow-up questions on the action plans taken away.

Thanks to all our sponsors for making this professional development session possible: Vantage Venues, D.E. Systems for our online registration, and our media partners, BizBash and Ignite.

Join us for our next PD session on emergency readiness and risk management. Block May 15 in your calendar now and stay tuned for more information.
