This is part of the Institute for Management Studies (IMS) Leadership Conversations.

These 60-minute IMS live virtual programs provide a quick dive into key topics that are critical to organizations during a time of disruptive change. Packed with actionable learning strategies, participants will experience an interactive virtual program with an IMS thought leader and receive post-session support through micro-learning lessons and a discussion board.

Do you wish you could stop the mayhem of work and life for a brief moment and just take a minute? Does busyness deprive you of the oxygen your talents need to really catch fire? Many feel this way, but taking a pause has felt impossible—until now. In this engaging program Juliet Funt, author of A Minute To Think, will share strategies that will give you the permission, framework, and specific direction you need to regain control of your overloaded, caffeinated, inbox-worshipping workday and find your precious minute.

Learn effective strategies to:

  • Defeat busywork
  • Achieve top-level priorities faster
  • Make work simpler, more pleasant, and more effective
  • Create a positive culture to make your workplace most pleasant and attractive to top talent

  • Turn off your email and phone notifications to avoid distractions.
  • Be camera ready! Participants are expected to have their cameras on during the entire session.
  • Have a pen and paper ready.
