Using GTD to Make Social Media Work
One of the important issues we all face in embracing social media is making time for it.
Whether we are...
- Physicians working social media engagement into a busy practice, or
- Communications or marketing staff juggling social media responsibilities among many other longer-established duties, or
- Dedicated social media staff trying to keep up with unlimited demand from internal stakeholders who want to implement social strategies...
...involvement in social media can create a massive number of inputs that can easily overwhelm our mental circuits.
That's why I'm glad we are able to offer an outstanding all-day workshop to help develop skills for managing these inputs, engaging with them appropriately, and preventing the burnout that could be worsened by bringing in these additional sources of inputs.
The course is based on David Allen's New York Times best-selling book, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity, or GTD as it is commonly known.
In addition to that Arizona session, we have two more in February: Feb. 15 at our Mayo Clinic Health System site in La Crosse, WI and Feb. 29 in Rochester.
In response to significant interest, we've scheduled several more sessions in Rochester during the first half of the year. Registration is now open for:
Here's a taste of what to expect in these sessions:
I have found the GTD methodology indispensable in my work and life since I encountered it on a fateful plane flight home from Jacksonville in 2005.
Two years ago I took this all-day course and was certified by VitalSmarts to offer it to Mayo Clinic staff, and since then have had nearly 200 Public Affairs staff and physicians participate.
