What You Will Learn
This extremely informative webinar will look at one of the least talked about skills that a project manager should have. Despite the profession of project management being recognized as a potentially stressful profession, the ability to look after your own well-being is not seen as an essential skill that a project manager should have.  A project manager is told that they must have a great blend of technical skills such as financial acumen, scheduling ability, and quantitative risk management. They are also encouraged to develop their soft skills such as communication leadership, stakeholder management, etc. But the common element with all of these soft skills is that they are outward-facing. A key skill that a project manager needs to learn is an inward-facing soft skill, and that is the ability to look after their own wellbeing. However, by looking after your own well-being you can ensure you are performing at your professional and personal best. 
This webinar will give applicable tips, tricks, and techniques to enhance all aspects of your well-being, including exercise, nutrition, and emotional well-being. It will also draw on the science of positive psychology to give you a strength-based set of tools to build your resilience and enhance your wellbeing.

He has all the usual credentials and experience in providing global consulting and teaching and project management. He has also been a longtime volunteer with the Project Management Institute.
