Dr. Sherry Barnes, one of Trinity's communication arts professors, earned certification from FranklinCovey Co. to lead one of its productivity workshops. As a facilitator, she will share time management principles that will help people identify and achieve the highest priorities of their daily activities.

Barnes, who holds a doctorate in human resource development from the University of Nebraska and has served as vice president of the American Society for Training and Development, attended her first Franklin seminar in 1992. Now she plans to incorporate the principles she learned into her teaching.

"The time-planning system is based on establishing priorities to manage daily activities and accomplish the most important tasks first," she said. "It integrates home, professional, and ministry goals and responsibilities. I look forward to sharing the system with the Trinity community."

Barnes conducted a workshop titled "Focus: Achieving Your Highest Priorities" on campus Thursday, January 16. The workshop included a lecture, small-group discussion, short videos, and workbook activities. She plans to introduce it as part of the new TRACS Communication Program beginning in May.
