Annapolis Dinner Meeting: Project Managers Have Feelings Too!



PMI Baltimore Chapter – Annapolis Site Dinner Meeting

22nd January 2020

Project Managers Have Feelings Too!


In 1995, Daniel Goleman authored a highly acclaimed book entitled Emotional Intelligence, and it was revolutionary in its impact on the workplace. The foundational principles – self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills, empathy, and motivation – are widely considered to be at least as important as subject matter expertise. Studies have shown a correlation between leadership ability, job performance, and the ability to accurately perceive and manage emotions. While no causal relationship has been proven, it is clear that success in project management is highly dependent on our ability to form and maintain positive relationships.

Join Lisa and Dave for a brief exploration of the connection between emotional intelligence and success in project management. When we love our work, it shows! It spreads! It is infectious! And when our team loves work, they stay! What’s love got to do with it? Everything!!!
