Presenter: George Pitagorsky
I think ideas presented are quite interesting. They included:
IQ is not enough. Intelligence is more complex than just IQ. There are also cognitive intelligence, emotional intelligence, social intelligence...
Success is not only about capability to do something. What is the attitute, the mood that you are bringing to a situation? Is it compatible or incompatible?
Performance factors are more complex than we usually envision them. They include: cognitive readiness, personality, intelligence, motivation, knowledge & experience, perspectives, mindful awareness (being awake, knowing what's going on purposefully)...
Mindfulness meditation: enhance attention (Eastern) to make distinctions (Western countries) and make better decisions. Mindfulness is a matter of physical attitude: observing outside and inside the body.
From ideas to practice
The irony is that I have the impression that instead of getting more aware during the session, people got more and more asleep... Then suddently my neighborgh behind, from Venezuela, asked a question and he awaked the audience.
New to some project managers
According to the questions, it looks like the topic is interesting over all and people are willing to learn and above all to PRACTICE at next PMI congresses!
