    Student Life Organizing - CEU-eligible


    Ellen Sklanka, Renewal Organizing

    Student life is a completely different story than it was even ten short years ago. Academic expectations, technological advances, and social media exposure have all added pressures to school-age children and teens, and we are seeing the impact on their mental health, school success, and social relationships. Add in the fact that their brains aren't yet fully developed, and you can understand how overwhelm can make a tough situation even worse.

    We will discuss strategies to assess a student's organizational needs, pack their "Organization Toolbox" and boost their confidence in managing their busy lives.


    This presentation will let attendees discover:


    • Tips for identifying student needs.
    • How to guide students to organize their thoughts, assignments, and materials so that their brains can be open to learning.
    • That learning style, neurodiversity, and personality can all be a part of the puzzle, and that each student's individual needs will drive this process.


    Ellen Sklanka is the Founder of Renewal Organizing, and has enjoyed sharing her passion for helping people through her business since 2020, serving students of all ages, helping them to create personalized systems for success. With a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Rochester, Rochester, New York, and more than  20 years of experience leading others in being their best selves in their workplace, she loves learning what makes people "tick." Connection and collaboration are the foundation of all her work, and she is excited to explore Student Organizing with you!



    Break-Out Room Questions:

    • Reflect on your academic years. What pressures did you face? What do you know about yourself now that could have helped you then?
    • Think of students in your life now. What do you notice about their relationship to academics, family and social experiences?

    How I Used Minimalism to Rightsize my Life - CEU-eligible

    Aimee Olson, Life Done Simply


    Tuesday March 7, 2023 6:15PM - 8:00PM

    "How might my life be better with less?" That was the question that turned Aimee's life right-side up in 2014. Despite being successful and organized, Aimee found herself drained, overwhelmed and trapped in an unfulfilling career. Realizing she was sacrificing her happiness to meet societal expectations, she shifted and began exploring Minimalism. Through this journey, she found the courage to leave her career, realign her lifestyle with her values, ad find true contentment.

    Aimee will share her journey, what it is like to transition away from the typical American life into tiny living, and how she maintains an identity that isn't measured by Minimalism. She will also highlight the challenges of practicing Minimalism as a business owner in a consumer- and hustle-driven culture.


    You will walk away and be inspired to:

    • Begin a practice of living intentionally
    • Utiliize three key minimalism strategies when encountering stuff, ideas, and expectations
    • Create a life that is uniquely yours


    Aimee Olson is a Minimalist, tiny home dweller and founder of Life Done Simply. Her coaching business focuses on productivity and time management strategies, intentional living, and mindfulness practices. She is a Past President of NAPO Minnesota and a volunteer in the NAPO Next-to-Lead, Chapter Relations, and Ambassador Committees. Aimee holds NAPO Specialist Certificates in Workplace Productivity, Brain-Based Conditions, and Residential Organizing. In 2018, Aimee ditched her "sticks 'n bricks" and set off to work and live on the road in an 180-square-foot RV with her partner and their golden retriever. They have traveled over 22,000 miles and have no plans on stopping anytime soon.

    Break-out Room Questions:

    • When you hear the term "Minimalism," what comes to mind?
    • Can you identify one thing in your personal life or business that is out-of-alignment with your values?
    • Have you ever found yourself working towards a goal because of societal pressure?

    Humorous Leadership in a Diverse World


    Katie Munoz, Serious to Hilarious


    Tuesday April 4, 2023 6:15PM - 8:00PM

    Research has shown that leaders who use humor are 20% more motivating. But most people believe humor happens by accident and are unable to reproduce their occasional success. In this workshop, Katie shares a step-by-step process to create the perfect humor for the occasion while keeping all of your toes out of your mouth.


    You will be taught:

    • The reasons to use humor
    • The one necessary element that makes something funny
    • How to structure your communications to a) motivate at the start of a project, b) lighten the hard times, and c) adjust your congratulations to an individual's personality.


    Break-out room questions:

    (1) Share an occasion when you lighted a dark time for a client or employee with humor. Were you pleased with the outcome?

    (2) Have you ever tried to use humor and had it not work out the way you hoped?


    Katie Munoz is an unexpected speaker who was born quiet and serious. She stumbled into public speaking by accident. Being a software engineer, she didn't think humor and public speaking were skills she would need, but she loved the unforgettable adrenaline surge she experienced when she made an audience laugh.

    But those skills became vital when she became a program manager, and even more useful when she started her own move management business, Moving Forward.

    Now Katie coaches public speaking and humor full time, and in one way or another, she has been teaching these for over 25 years. She loves showing how even a naturally quiet, serious person can be funny with no personality transplant required. Check out her webpage, www.serioustohilarious.com, for tips and entertaining videos. Funny folks get remembered!
