We’re all tired of being a part of “unprecedented times” and a side effect for a lot of us is a huge increase in… procrastination.

Sometimes, we want to lie in bed and play Sudoku in the hopes our responsibilities disappear but if we skip a few games this quick read will help us “eat our frogs” and be better time managers. There are some quick and relatively easy tips and tricks to implement to help us tackle our day-to-day and kickstart our productivity!

When: February/ March

You spoke and we listened. Many of us are feeling burnt out from the constant “unprecedented weeks” which are giving us very little down time. For our book club, we’re going to suggest a book which may give you a boost or help you change your mindset a small bit to help us get through this. If there is enough interest, we will schedule a time for us to get together at the end of March to talk about the book but
you don’t have to!

This session’s book is “Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead” by Brené Brown. It may have parent in the title, but that isn’t necessary to get into it. It’s not a very long book and one that you can pick up and put down as you have the time or are in the “mood” to read.

In this hour-long webinar, participants will develop an introductory understanding of land and treaty acknowledgements in Canada.

All participants at any level of education and exposure to Indigenous ideas and history are welcome to join.

The workshop will run from 7 to 8 pm with networking to follow until 8:30 pm

Speakers: Jacquelyn Cardinal and Hunter Cardinal are co-founders of the tech company Naheyawin. This event is eligible for CMP / SCMP maintenance credits.
