Crowd Sourced Inspiration

My parting thoughts on PMI's 50th anniversary Global Conference

My impressions from day one of "Ask an Expert" at #PMIcon19

Ask The Experts -- at the global conference

What Does an Invitation to the ‘Ask the Expert’ Panel Mean to Me? #PMIcon19 #Inspiration


Categories: EMEA


Presenter: George Pitagorsky

I think ideas presented are quite interesting. They included:

Intelligence

IQ is not enough. Intelligence is more complex than just IQ. There are also cognitive intelligence, emotional intelligence, social intelligence...

Success

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

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

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!

"Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition."
