Courses and Seminars Facilitated by Shirley Lee

(a.k.a. Meeting Wizard)

 From Productivity series: (click here for descriptions) Shirley Fine Lee lecturing in corporate auditorium

  • Time Management (Tasks, Appointment, Priorities, People)
  • Workspace Organization
  • Meeting Management (Roles, Agenda, Records, Actions)
  • Meeting Management Train the Trainer (Ask About)
  • Project Management Simplified (Staffing, Tasks, Timeline, Budget, Milestones/Critical Path)

Shirley Lee designed the Wizard series in 2003 as a way to help individuals and teams build planning and organizing skills.   Shirley Lee has been a strong advocate of time effectiveness principles, such as creating a list of tasks to be done and then scheduling the time to do them, since 1987. To help others learn to better utilize their time, Shirley spread her enthusiasm for the topic by teaching Time Management classes and seminars beginning back in 1989.  Shirley feels that organizing work areas is a natural extension of individual  time management.

To extend the planning and organizing  principles to groups and teams, Shirley Lee felt information on effective meetings and well-run projects should be part of the series.  Shirley is a certified meeting facilitator and has been delivering classes and seminars on Meeting Management to individuals, teams, and organizations since 1994.  As far back as 1986, Shirley has been involved in many major project activities: including information systems design, process development, and quality improvement. She began actively exercising the role of project team leadership and planning Project Management in 1993. Shirley continued to polish her skills and eventually started helping others to learn some project planning basics in 1996 through both seminars and self-teaching materials.

  • Problem Solving (D.A.G.G.E.R)

Shirley Lee began adding to her Wizard training series in 2005 as clients asked for information on putting together committees or building teams.  And of course, once these committees are teams were put together they needed to understand the principles of effective meetings, or project management, and how to solve problems.
