FGCU Florida Institute of Government Presents "Thriving Under Pressure Series"

FORT MYERS, FL - The Florida Institute of Government at Florida Gulf Coast University offers two professional development workshops designed for individuals looking for better ways to manage their time and thrive, 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 7 in Student Union 213. Jacquelyn Ferguson is facilitator for the workshops.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., "Coping at the Speed of Change" teaches participants to become change-skilled by turning the natural resistance-to-change energy into adapting and problem-solving energy. Participants will also learn how to approach the changes in life in a problem-solving way using the Chinese Ideogram for Crisis method.

The second workshop follows at 1 p.m. with "Work Smarter, Not Harder." Participants will learn the five most common types of compulsive time use and how to overcome them; discover how to use the best priority setting system in the world; and examine how to get organized with the Goal + Plan + Schedule = Organized method.

Seating is limited, and cost for each session is $69. A healthy snack is included in the fee. Register for one session or for both.
