Group Zoom Classes
We offer two web conferencing classes each month.
We recommend you start with Time Management!
Brain-based Time Management
This hands-on 3 hour class shows you how to support your brain so you can be more efficient with time, more effective in planning, and experience less stress/overwhelm. We often feel that we have too much to do and not enough time to do it in. Imagine finishing your workday with confidence that you remembered and handled everything you needed to.
This class includes concrete tools and strategies to stay on track and on time, plan your day/week, and prioritize your workload.
Get a new perspective on time management
Neuroscience tells us we have 10 brain skills and each one of us has skills that are strong (and skills that are not strong). In this class, you’ll hear about each of these skills so you can identify where the weak spots are for you and most importantly, what you can do about them.
What, exactly, does your brain need to manage time well?
Mary Ellen Baker provided realistic, useful strategies combined with education in executive function to empower those in the class to improve our efficiency AND calm/mindfulness. I have tried classes like this before, and this is by far the biggest “bang for the buck.”Maude Hines, Assoc. Prof., PSU

This was a great class that reminded me of some organizational tools I should be using but more importantly grounded the advice in psychological & neurological principles that helped them make sense.

I’ve used your worksheets and got so much done before 9 am this morning! I didn’t realize how overwhelming a to do list is without the time circles! Having the circle there reminds me to allocate time segments to each task. I’ve also started using the time cube with my son and I’m realizing how important it is to use it with him so he doesn’t grow up with a warped sense of time. This morning, I set the time for 15 minutes for screen time and he said it felt like 5 minutes. I assured him that it was a full 15 minutes.

The class was very informative. I appreciated having material to look over, and that we worked on together throughout the class. The pace was perfect in terms of feeling comfortable to ask questions as they came up, and felt safe enough to not feel shame/embarrassed by our questions. Mary Ellen was knowledgeable, welcoming, and engaging. I really appreciated the follow-up emails with further documents and information.
