Title: The Slow Advisor: Taking a Principled Stand in an Age of Immediacy
Lead Presenter: Ryan Scheckel
Date: October 07, 2020    Time: 1:20 pm - 2:05 pm
Room: Live
Abstract: We've all felt it, the inexorable push toward faster, sooner, NOW! In today's world, how do advisors balance the evident benefits of information technology solutions and accessibility with the human realities of living with that kind of pressure? And what do we do when our students and institutions seem to only contribute to the speed at which we are expected to work? Answers can be found in the Slow Movement, which began in response to fast food, but has now expanded into higher education. Join us as we slow down and discuss how to strategically negotiate with these competing forces to find not only balance but also pleasure, collaboration, understanding, collegiality, beauty, and maybe even rest.
