What You Will Learn

Technical project management, with all its guidelines and templates, is relatively easy. The real power to perform, manage, influence, and lead lies in self-management. Self-management enables open-mindedness, resilience, and adaptability to promote healthy relationships and optimal performance. Mindful awareness is the key to self-management.

We are faced with high volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity in our world and there is no way to predict the outcome or the duration of this intense period of change. The project environment may not be as chaotic, but it is rare to find projects that do not experience the strain of unexpected change and less than ideal personal relationships.

In this two-hour virtual workshop, you will experience mindfulness practice techniques and discuss concepts to anchor mindful awareness in the mentor/mentee relationship and to enable you to take it beyond that to everything you do. You will learn to:

  • Practice formal and informal mindfulness meditation techniques
  • Identify the principal causes of unnecessary stress
  • Recognize the key terms and concepts that, with mindfulness, create mindful awareness to promote resilience and the ability to be a positive influencer
  • Apply your understanding of mindful awareness to enhance your open-mindedness, resilience, and adaptability
