Agenda Item 38 - Getting Over the Load | #TheGovernorsPodcast
Show Notes

For today's Single Item Agenda (episode), as we acknowledge 3 years of the podcast, we discuss;

  • Transitioning from the end of the autumn term to the beginning of the spring term and how to ensure we retain our current volunteers and encourage others to join
  • The volume of emails from mailing list subscriptions in the education governance space and managing your inboxes to avoid overload and overwhelm - how to implement filtering practices to determine what to action and when to respond
  • How organisations can manage their mailing lists and consider different email marketing and email communication strategies - Emailing services implementing stricter regulations
  • How to take back control - creating and upholding (digital) boundaries; communicating during your own working hours; setting up protected time and space incl. using the Do Not Disturb feature on your devices to manage reactions to notifications
  • Improving self awareness: Evaluating self, having standards and resetting your habits to make progress forward, incl. learning styles, communication styles, chairing skills

Thank you for tuning into our show. We appreciate you, our listeners.
