The Zen PM: Practicing Mindfulness in Digital Chaos

October 14th | 1:30 PM

As DPMs we often focus on the process of managing our projects. But, the most critical piece of our role is effectively leading our teams and navigating the many challenges that can arise on a project.

This breakout session will be a discussion of best approaches to keeping our teams motivated, selfless, encouraged, and simply...happy.

Also, as DPMs how do we keep ourselves present in this type of calming space when things happen unexpectedly? Emily Scala, Director of Project Management at Think Brownstone, and Cynthia Schmitt, Engagement Director at EY-Intuitive have utilized eastern philosophy techniques in managing their project teams, and will moderate this session.
