Greater Good/Kellogg 2020-Optimizing Time Management with Competing Pressures Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Greater Good/Kellogg 2020-Optimizing Time Management with Competing Pressures Part of the Greater Good Kellogg


Time is a resource as well as a premium.  When tasks and obligations increase, we need to accomplish more in the same amount of time.  Unfortunately, critical and strategic work is often neglected and the majority of people employ ineffective strategies to complete all of their responsibilities.  By the end of this session, participants will learn how they can be more intentional with their time and mindfully complete the essential tasks.  The session will also explore and discuss the cognitive science and power of timing as it relates to when to do particular tasks.

Jim Croft is a Principal with JWC Consulting Group (JWCCG) in Chicago. JWCCG brings leadership and financial management experience to the nonprofit community and is positioned to help organizations meet strategic objectives and achieve their mission.

In addition to his work at JWCCG, Dr. Croft serves as the academic director for nonprofit finance in the Kellogg School of Management’s Center for Nonprofit Management at Northwestern University, and is a faculty member at Northwestern’s School of Professional Studies. He is also on the MBA faculty in the College of Business at the University of Nebraska.


This workshop is taught by Senior and Clinical Kellogg School faculty as well as relevant seasoned practitioners.  This format allows rigor and enhanced learning in the program.  Participants learn best practices and how to apply these in their unique organizations.  The sessions are modeled on the Kellogg School’s MBA program including lectures, case discussions, problem solving and role-playing.


8:30am-continental breakfast, 9:00am-2:00pm-workshop with lunch included
