Empowering Your Time Retreat

πŸ“… Thursday, March 30, 2023 from 12-3pm EDT

Brought to you by the McMaster Department of Medicine

Many people struggle with managing all the competing demands on their time and feel significant stress and overwhelm around getting things done, setting priorities, and managing workflows - and faculty members are no different!

The purpose of this 3-hour retreat session is to present an evidence-based framework for setting and achieving goals, and for more effective time management.

This retreat will allow time for participants to reflect on their goals, hone their strategies, and create a plan to implement to help meet their goals. The topics were determined based on faculty interest and needs.
