Happy new year!
Every evening when I bring my 7 years old daughter Charlotte to bed, I ask her the following two important questions:
- What did you like most today and made you smile?
- What have you learned today?
Today I received two powerful messages which, in essence, reflected in a beautiful way to the above.
This is what I learned and made me smile today:
- Project Management trends to watch in 2017.Kamil Mroz explains in his blog a new era on Project Management (my current role). I completely support this vision as you can read in some of my previous blog’s. Over the last weeks I read that key change companies like Deloitte, PwC, KPMG and McKinsey also consider to change the role of Managing Directors into Project/Program Managers. Specifically in fast moving environments and disruptive changing markets we need adaptive change managers. Support change is the core skillset of modern, experienced and certified project managers with a high EQ and IQ.
- A great video about Redefining Happiness.Jay Shetty explains in this extremely powerful video message his vision on happiness. Not ‘are we there yet’? But how do I feel at every stage of the journey: are we happy in our state of being, at work, in our life etc.? We should shift our focus from doing to being! I fully agree that we are only able to find happiness inside ourselves. And when you ask your self the two simple questions every evening while looking in a mirror (see also my previous blog), I am convinced you can influence your life, projects, people around you and more in a positive way.
Happy people create happy projects, happy companies, happy customers and a better world!
I would like to thank Kamil and Jay that they have shared these two powerful messages and visions to me today!
