I’ve been away from #pmchat for too long. A few things have changed since I stopped being a ‘regular’. After years of dedicated leadership, Robert Kelly handed over the reins to Dr Alexia. While my kids (5 and 2 y/o) preclude me from joining every Tuesday at 8pm, I’ve obtained a special pass from my wife so that I can join this coming Tuesday 21st July 2020.
Dr Alexia kindly allowed me to choose the topic and I’ve gone with ‘The Happy Project Manager – a focus on mental wellbeing’. This was a no-brainer (pun intended) as mental health is a subject very close to my heart. On a related note here’s a quick plug for a mental health event I’m helping to organise (World Suicide Prevention Day).
Anyway, in Tuesday’s #pmchat I want to explore questions like:
- ‘How do you maintain your own mental wellbeing as a Project / Product / Delivery Manager?’;
- ‘What behavioural / thought patterns / other signs do you look out for – for yourself and colleagues – that may indicate something is wrong?’;
- ‘What steps can you take to maintain happiness and productivity within a project team?’
Hopefully that has whetted your appetite for what I’m sure will be a fascinating chat. If you’d like to join in, just open up the #pmchat latest tweets page at 8pm (BST) Tues 21st July and respond to as many questions as you like in the format “A1) *** My answer here *** #pmchat”.
Looking forward to seeing you there,
