Exercise and Motivation Study at Bentley University

Friday, July 1, 2011

By CB Loeb
Contributor

Do you want to exercise more?

I am doing a research study for graduate school on what motivates people to go to the gym. Can you give me five minutes of your time? I've enclosed a link to a super-brief survey and would very much like your input. Even if you don't think this is the right study for you, I would be most obliged if you would forward this link on to anyone you think might be willing to participate.

The study is comprised of two parts: the survey and a focus group. For those kind folks who would like to join the focus group, you will have the opportunity to sign up as part of the survey. If you are not interested, or do not live in Massachusetts, this is fine. Your completion of the survey would be of great value all on its own.

Gratefully yours,

Sylvia Berry Concert
Sylvia Berry has performed as a soloist and chamber musician in the US, the UK, Canada, The Netherlands, and Italy. Since moving to Boston in 2005 she has been performing regularly in the area, quickly becoming a favorite in Boston and beyond by engaging her audiences with informative commentary about the music and the instruments she plays. Benjamin Dunham of Early Music America stated of a recent solo appearance: " [;she]; revealed a poetic sensibility and a willingness to draw listeners in with spaces to pause and reflect. These qualities contrasted nicely with up-tempo movements, which were handled with verve."

Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Tip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: A box lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations. Registration/Cancellation/Refund Policy: If you registered for a class and need to cancel, you may transfer the registration to another person at no cost. Simply reach out to us at Info@FreeStandingAgility.com and let us know who will be attending in your place. If you registered for a class, need to cancel, and cannot transfer the ticket to another person, the following policies will be in effect: 1. If you notify us in advance of 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL be eligible for a refund for the full price of the class OR you can ask to be moved to a future class date at no extra cost. Refunds will be processed immediately, but may take 7-10 days to show on your credit card statement depending on your card provider's policy. 2. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL NOT be eligible for a refund of the full price of the class and you will need to pay a $72.40 rescheduling fee to be moved to a future class date. This policy stems from the the fact that the venue for our classes requires us to commit an attendee count 7 days before the class date. They charge us based on that committed number. When attendees that are committed do not attend at the last minute, the venue still charges us per the committed number. We are simply passing this cost on to the attendee should the condition apply. 3. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel and do not want to reschedule, you do not need to pay the rescheduling fee, but you do forfeit the price of the class.

Re-Energize Your Agile Adoption
Workshop Summary Too often, transitions to Agile that start out with a bang quickly fizzle under the weight of the status quo, desire to keep existing business processes, and misunderstandings about Agile.   If this has happened to your team, don’t panic! There are a set of observed typical anti-patterns seen by organizations– especially as they begin to understand Agile is not a process, but an approach to delivering superior value for your clients.   Learning Objectives   Bringing decades of real-world experience from actual clients, SolutionsIQ will lead you and a group of your peers through this highly interactive workshop so that you can: Learn common anti-patterns that tend to throw off the best-intentioned organizations Identify root cause(s) of your detractors Determine some next steps to take back at your organization Plus establish a network of your peers at other local organizations!   Attendees The ideal attendee has intermediate/advanced skills applying Agile at an organization. This could include ScrumMasters, Product Owners, Team Members, and Managers. This is not an introductory workshop on Agile. To ensure a diverse workshop, the maximum enrollment per company will be limited to four people. Contact us  at Training@SolutionsIQ.com for groups larger than four.

Building Stakeholder Engagement Through Your Meetings
Engaging multiple stakeholders can be a critical aspect of the success of many initiatives. You may need the input and support of decision-makers, funders, doers, influencers or recipients to succeed. How can you design meetings that enable all points of view to be shared respectfully and productively while keeping the discussion on track and on time? In this workshop we will explore the practices and tools of a structural approach to the design of meetings that build stakeholder engagement.  A structural approach relies less on facilitating desired behavior and more on creating a structure that naturally enables an effective exchange of ideas and decisions.  The techniques of a structural approach can be used with any size group, from a small team to a whole community.   Takeaways: A clearer view of the (often unseen) structure of meetings and how to use structure to make them more productive. Techniques for effective engagement of any size group. Leave with ideas for the design of an upcoming meeting on an important initiative. Rick Lent has spent the last 20 years identifying structures for more effective meetings and coaching leaders in their use. He facilitates meetings around the world in business, non-profit organizations and communities. Some of the organizations with which he has worked include the World Food Programme, InterAction, UNICEF, ArchstoneSmith, Logitech, the WK Kellogg Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. He has also worked with dozens of local civic, religious and nonprofit groups.   Rick delivers workshops and presentations on a structural approach to better meetings and shares his perspective on meetings on his blog at www.meetingforresults.com. His new book, Leading Great Meetings: How to Structure Yours for Success is designed to help leaders adopt structures that make their meetings naturally more productive.  He received his Ph.D. from Syracuse University in Instructional Design, Development and Evaluation and continued his studies in organizational learning and development.

Of Greek and Turkish descent, Artemis fuses her love of these cultures with deep academic knowledge and excellent dance technique to present compelling, spirited workshops that include information on the history and cultures that generate the dances. She believes that we can all use art to build bridges across cultures. Artemis has contributed to many publications. Her travel to 33 countries and intesive research into the idioms of the East, women's issues, psychology, ancient history, Oriental dance, Romany (Gypsy) dance, and dance ethnology have yielded many manuscripts and articles. Artemis holds an M.A. in psychology and an M.S.W. in social work with specialized studies in cross-cultural awareness. She has also done post graduate work in dance and movement therapy, and field research in ancient dance, Middle Eastern dance, and Romany dance in Turkey, Romania, Czech Republic, Spain, France, England, Morocco, Tunisia, Germany, Slovenia, Italy, Egypt and Greece. She has attended Romany festivals in France, Turkey and Romany, and has collected footage of Roma people dancing and in everyday life. Artemis' collection of antique photos of Roma and dancers from North Africa and the Middle East is among the largest in the United States, and some illustrations have been used by the International Encyclopedia of Dance, the Smithsonian Institution, the largest Romany museum in the world (Czech Republic), all of the major Middle Eastern Dance publications, and in several books. When she's not traveling for performances or workshops, Artemis teaches regular classes and private lessons in belly dance in the Bethesda, Maryland area.

Agile & Scrum Fundamentals 1-Day Training from FreeStandingAgility.com - Sep
This one-day class is designed to provide you with a rapid foundation in the values, benefits, and practices of Agile and Scrum. After completing this class, you'll have a solid understanding of what "doing Agile" or "adopting Scrum" really means and be ready to move forward with Scrum in your organization. If you already do Scrum and need to spin up more teams or on-board new employees quickly, this is the class for you. Here's a quick list of the topics the class covers: - Comparing traditional approaches and Agile approaches - Conducting iterative planning and development with Scrum, Kanban, and XP - Understanding the roles, events, artifacts, and rules of Scrum - Creating, ordering, and grooming the product backlog - Writing, slicing, and sizing user stories - Working with a Definition of Ready (DoR) and a Definition of Done (DoD) - Planning and tracking releases and sprints - Visualizing progress with taskboards, burndowns, and burnups - Estimating with teams using planning poker and affinity techniques - Understanding team velocity and role metrics - Conducting effective standups, sprint planning, sprint reviews, and retrospectives Why a one-day class? It's simple. The goal is to impart the essentials of Agile and Scrum to each participant in the shortest amount of time using an active classroom with simulations and interactive team learning exercises. Who should attend? With rich, useful content, a single day commitment, and a low price, the class is great for both individuals and teams. Individuals quickly gain the knowledge they need to broaden their skills and make themselves more marketable. Who can't spare a day for that. As for teams, the class delivers even more value by making it easy to afford sending team members together and compounding the learning they bring back to their companies. Compare that to sending a single person to a two-day class for $1500 and hoping that they'll be able to share what they learned to others. Still need convincing? Read what some students have said. "The class was one of the most engaging and cost-effective classes I've taken in 25+ years of work." - Irwin Schreiman, PerkinElmer "WOW!" - Chuck Miksis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Awesome Class!" - Stanley Ivas "Best in Boston to learn Agile/Scrum." - Kanda Alagappan "I can use these principles & practices to take charge of my day today." - Heather Mardis, Motorola Mobility/ARRIS "Very valuable and enjoyable." - Larry Antonuk, Markem-Imaje "Very informative, engaging, and a definite 'go to' for starting or improving agile in your company." - Abhinay Pujari, GMO "Well done. The experience of the instructors is great." - Mike Dunbar, Conexant "If you are planning to or are employing Agile methodology, this class should be required." - Mark Ayasee, VFA Inc. "Excellent class. Covered the fundamentals in a fun interesting manner." - Josh Feldman "It's as good for beginners as for someone who is already using agile." - Oleg Puzatkin, VFA Inc. "Great crash course in agile methodologies." - Jill Nickerson, AlixPartners "It's a great introductory class for understanding the fundamentals of Scrum." - Chandra Kollipara, BA Insight "Definitely worth every penny + would absolutely recommend!" - Colleen Schwartz, AlixPartners "Agile ASAP is a great one day introduction to Agile and Scrum. The teachers are among the best in the world. I brought my entire team with me, and they left excited and ready to bring it to work the next day. I will send more teams to this class, and I'll bring the teachers into my company for on-site training. Don't miss it!" - Richard Kasperowski, Nokia Class Time: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM Class Day Travel Trip: Traffic on I-95/128 is a wildcard and can be "unpleasant" before class time. The best idea is leave early and target getting to classroom between 8:30-8:45. Dress Code: The dress code for the class is casual. Come comfortable and ready to engage in learning. Lunch: Lunch will be provided. Instructors: The course instructors are from FreeStanding Agility, a team of Agile educators, trainers, and coaches with over 12 years of combined experience, coaching and/or training Agile teams in over 100 different organizations. Registration/Cancellation/Refund Policy: If you registered for a class and need to cancel, you may transfer the registration to another person at no cost. Simply reach out to us at Info@FreeStandingAgility.com and let us know who will be attending in your place. If you registered for a class, need to cancel, and cannot transfer the ticket to another person, the following policies will be in effect: 1. If you notify us in advance of 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL be eligible for a refund for the full price of the class OR you can ask to be moved to a future class date at no extra cost. Refunds will be processed immediately, but may take 7-10 days to show on your credit card statement depending on your card provider's policy. 2. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel, you WILL NOT be eligible for a refund of the full price of the class and you will need to pay a $72.40 rescheduling fee to be moved to a future class date. This policy stems from the the fact that the venue for our classes requires us to commit an attendee count 7 days before the class date. They charge us based on that committed number. When attendees that are committed do not attend at the last minute, the venue still charges us per the committed number. We are simply passing this cost on to the attendee should the condition apply. 3. If you notify us within 7 business days of the class that you need to cancel and do not want to reschedule, you do not need to pay the rescheduling fee, but you do forfeit the price of the class.
