Department of One

  • 1.  Monthly Review CEP Magazine (Continued Learning Activity)

    Posted 3 days ago

    Once a month, at our compliance meeting, we review summary notes of the articles that are pertinent to our company from that month's CEP Magazine.  Those articles that are of particular interest, I put a little gold star next to them.  The gold start items are discussion items for the team.  It is another way a "Department of One" can maximize the information provided by SCCE.  The notes would go something like:


    • Note 1
    • Note 2
    • Note 3
    • Note 4
    Not every article is applicable to our line of business, but I still read through each article because there are a few "tidbits" of information that may generally apply even if it is about culture, leadership, work life, good quotes for my bullet journal, etc.

    It takes me about 4-6 hours to read the issue and sometimes I type out my notes directly from the magazine into MS OneNote or sometimes I highlight what I will type out (usually if I am traveling and I am reading the magazine periodically throughout the month I will do it this way).  Luckily, I am a fast typist so I can transcript the highlights back into MS OneNote fairly quickly.  If you have MS Office 365 (cloud-based version) you can use the Dictation feature and speak into your microphone and Word will automatically transcribe if you are not a fast typist.  Here is a link to the article on how to use the Dictation feature:

    Thanks to all those who write articles for the magazine!  I read EVERY article, EVERY month!

    Great suggestions today, Dianne, thank you!
    And I think I need to know more about your "bullet journal"... :-)
