Seawall’s projects have received numerous national awards, including: The Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence, United States Environmental Protection Agency – National Award for Smart Growth Achievement, Urban Land Institute – Jack Kemp Models of Excellence in Workforce Housing Award, and several Urban Land Institute – Wavemaker Awards.

In 2020, Manekin launched Larger Than Yourself, a collaborative space for brave people to share how they are helping small ideas become powerful movements.

Professional Development Workshop Series with Chris McDonell: How to Get and Stay Focused @ Virtual Meeting via Zoom
Oct 8 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

Chris McDonellMost everyone deals with the internal question: Why is it that I have so little time to do all of the things that I want to do?

We are all aware that time is a finite, non-renewable resource which must be carefully managed. Yet, having the personal conviction to take ownership of our own time can be extremely difficult. Often, people devalue their own time while prioritizing everyone else’s.  Many individuals in the workplace develop “head trash” around time management — throwing their hands up in the air, claiming there is no use in being proactive.

This workshop is designed to energize attendees to focus more intently on their individual time management behaviors in order to get more out of each day. We will ask all attendees to come prepared to take a closer look at how they have spent their time in recent weeks and learn from those experiences.

Chris McDonell is President of McDonell Consulting Group, a licensed Sandler Training center based in Baltimore. McDonell, who has more than 25 years of experience in sales and executive leadership, has worked throughout the U.S. for leading financial institutions, including Morgan Stanley, Citigroup and The Associates. McDonell has been with Sandler Training since 2008 and has formed long-term partnerships with small and large companies.
