Quarterly Breakfast Meeting

Subject: Are you a Project Parent? – Project Parenting an approach to managing teams

Date: May 26, 2022

Location:  Virtual

Speaker Presentation: 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM

While a servant-leader is a servant first and begins with a natural feeling to serve, a ‘parent-manager’ is a parent first and begins with a natural sense of nurture. While we often bring Project Management principles into our family scene to help us better organize and address issues, let us spend some time recognizing the valuable “lessons learned” from our home ground that can be plowed back into our workplace. Never was the role of a mentor, a coach, an empathetic “parent” collaborator felt more than in the recent years of uncertainty.
