Jones Loflin is an educator, business owner, and witty keynote speaker. In his article, he explains 4 ways to prepare for your next conference or training event.
The yearly ritual of school buses lumbering through our cities and communities has begun, signaling the start of a new school year. In a similar way, your bus has arrived. It’s time to let go of those laid back days of summer and return to the disciplined schedule that delivers results for you and your corporation or association. To insure that you don’t get left behind when it comes to planning your next conference or training event, remember these words of wisdom about riding a school bus:
1. Get everything ready the previous night. The further in advance you plan, the less stress you will have when something goes wrong at the last minute-and you know it will.
2. Be at the bus stop on time. Find ways to minimize distractions from less important tasks or issues so you can deliver quality results in a timely manner.
3. Wear your coat. As you transition into a more rigid work schedule, make it a priority to plan time for yourself and those relationships that most nourish you. Don’t limit your professional success by neglecting your personal well-being.
4. Make new friends. Identify 3-5 people with whom you need to build stronger relationships for collaboration, innovation or networking. Step outside your normal groups to get a fresh perspective. Develop more strategic partnerships.
And lastly-enjoy the ride. Take more time to celebrate what IS getting done instead of always feeling overwhelmed by what IS NOT getting done. Now get moving-the bus is here!
