Spring is in the air and summer will soon be here. Positivity and inspiration go hand in hand with these seasons - and indeed make us feel like Getting Things Done. That's, in fact, the title of the next event in The Wheel's Positive Leadership Series - it's all about overcoming bad habits, side-stepping stress, and embracing positive change!

Course details: 

Getting Things Done is a full-day workshop designed to give Irish nonprofit leaders an invaluable space and opportunity to recharge their batteries in the inspirational company of their peers and to find new and creative ways to move forward, bypassing any sense of inertia or "stuckness" that may have built up during the first part of the year.

Specifically, the workshop will explore:

  • What blocks us when we get “stuck”
  • How we can break out of ineffective habits like procrastination and creative avoidance.
  • Changing our focus to reduce the sense of being overwhelmed.

Learning Outcomes

As with any of the Positive Leadership days, participants can expect to come away refreshed, refocused and re-energised.

In addition, on this occasion, participants will:

  • Understand the thinking that underpins procrastination and creative avoidance
  • Have additional tools for tackling and completing tasks
  • Explore what creates the sense of being constantly/relentlessly overwhelmed
  • Have tools for breaking things down differently to avoid feeling overwhelmed.

Feedback from Participants at Carol Conway's Previous Leadership Events for The Wheel

"Carol is an excellent facilitator, really engaging, motivating and importantly, honest. What I enjoyed most about this training was the focus on positive visualisation and re-framing how we communicate internally with ourselves and the impact this can have on our external activities". - J. Murphy, Trócaire
"I have attended Carol's sessions before and always come away re-charged, refreshed and with an updated tool kit for use". - P. Cleary, Housing Association for Integrated Living
"I found this opportunity to think about the leadership and management of the organisation from fresh angles, hearing from those who had great experience and having the chance to talk together about approaches and solutions was hugely refreshing and inspiring."
"Carol's delivery is consistently excellent and she seems to be easily able to adapt to her audience. These follow up sessions are invaluable in terms of keeping focus on the IIE concepts. Keep them coming please! "
"I found the training to be excellent. It far exceeded my expectations in its usefulness to my work and I've used it in a number of ways to great benefit. The follow up session was really useful and is a nice way to keep the learning going. The structure of the training is nicely paced to allow you to take in what is an extensive amount of information in an easy way. I particularly valued the fact that there was enough time built in to allow discussions to go on when weighty concepts emerged for the group. It was a fantastic environment to spend time in and it was great that there was time for peer learning in the second session. I've been recommending the training to everyone I meet!"
