During our fall semester Student Success Day event on September 21st, 2021, Mark Wallace discussed “Getting Things Done” (GTD) methodology – a systematic approach to school, work, and life that helps reduce stress, increase control and productivity, and equip people with the tools needed to become the most effective versions of themselves. The major focus will be the 5 steps to create order out of chaos, what they look like in practice, and why they are necessary in this historic reality. This keynote presentation was given by Mark Wallace to students, faculty and staff at Inver Hills Community College and Dakota County Technical College as part of the Inver Hills Student Success Day line up of events. View the recorded session by logging in with your StarID, or view on the Student Senate D2L Course. VIEW RECORDING.
