5 Key Productivity Moves for Nonprofit Leaders (Mike St. Pierre)

February 2022

Has navigating the shifts in remote work only exacerbated gaps in your productivity?  Or, maybe it didn't take a global pandemic to realize staying organized in the nonprofit sector can exhaust even the most dedicated leaders. This fatigue and sense of exhaustion is real.  However, in episode #146 of Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership, we have the founder of Nonprofit Productive, Mike St. Pierre, to equip you with smart and simple strategies to maximize your productivity and avoid burnout.  Take back your schedule with Mike's five key productivity moves. Patton and Mike clearly articulate the best tips and practices from technology to self-care that will provide even the busiest highly motivated leaders the clarity to focus on the right things that need attention. Cited specifically in this episode are: TickTick an organizational app, Carey Nieuwhof's podcast on time management, the project management tool ActiveCollab, Mike's own Ideal Week Template and much more!
