In many Australian businesses, concepts like emotional intelligence are still considered as ‘soft stuff’ where empathy and emotions are not given priority as compared to other more tangible metrics. However, these softer aspects tend to have harder consequences in terms of business performance and sustainability.
Most projects fail to deliver fully on the benefits not because of technical challenges with the project management, rather more adaptive challenges that are social and human-centered. Further, as our workplace cultures are getting more diverse and global in nature, there is a critical need to upskill our leaders in these competencies.
Emotions play a far greater role in determining business success than many businesses realise. This could be attributed to the profound correlation between Emotional Hygiene and better customer experience, sales, and productivity, employee engagement, decision making, even hard measures such as financial performance and business growth.
The increased use of fMRI and EEG in accurately profiling the brain across cultures and industries has provided a vast amount of data used to develop strategies and measures to increase individual and organisational emotional hygiene and effectiveness.
This presentation is designed for Project Managers and Leaders who what to gain a deeper understanding of emotions and how to leverage high levels of engagement and endeavor by all stakeholders.
We would also like to invite you to attend PMI Toastmasters, which meets immediately before the Chapter Meeting servicing the local community of project managers in Perth.
