Mindfulness in Project Management: Harnessing the Power of Awareness for Clarity, Calm, and Cooperation
What does it mean to be ‘Mindful’? How can one apply the practice of Mindfulness to enhance the performance of their project team(s) – and, while we’re at it -- ourselves? Mindfulness is nothing new, but in our age of constant digital bombardment, endless distractions, and paralyzing mind clutter, it’s more important than ever for PMs, leaders, stakeholders, and team members alike to be able to apply Mindfulness – awareness (and acceptance) -- to what we think, feel, and therefore do (or don’t do). In this webinar, participants will be introduced to Mindfulness as an invaluable Wellness concept, as well as a management approach and (daily) practice for enhancing project team performance, individual calm, and the overall wellness of any organization.
We have witnessed the dawn of a new era of advancing technology. In the mid-1990s, fundamental research exploded and placed the foundation for advancement as well as the commercialization of products. That was history and now the creation of another technology race, somewhat like what we experienced during the Internet era, but moving faster and larger in terms of potential $$$ dollars. Quantum technology has created a global race that has resulted in multiple commercial product lines that have already begun to see real-world business application. The forecasted culmination of just three areas of quantum technology could grow by 4 or 5 times by 2025. It sure looks like a sci-fi flick! Gartner projects that by 2023, 20% of organizations will be budgeting from quantum computing projects. Time to get ready.
