Time Power-Ups: Get the Right Things Done to Work Well and Play More

Stuck checking boxes on an endless to-do list? Never have enough time to do what you want? Not sure what to do next? Getting more tasks done is never the answer when you're overwhelmed and burned out. Life can be about more than checking boxes if you know how to get the right tasks doneat the right time.  What is the secret to making that happen? Knowing that it's never just the system; but also, the behavior, that can free your time. End the busyness and power up your productivity!

Technical Breakout B:

Effectively Managing Remote and Hybrid Project Teams

As organizations continue to evolve project teams in remote and hybrid work environments, we need to rethink how that affects project team and organizational culture and harness the benefits hybrid and remote environments can bring. Project management professionals need to address both the challenges and opportunities teams currently face and what the future of remote working will bring.  Additionally, a “work from anywhere” policy is quickly becoming a necessity for recruiting, engaging, and retaining talent. This session will also dive into how your hybrid work environment can offer a competitive advantage and appeal to digital natives.

We are one idea away from changing the world
In consideration of developing countries, we are waiting for the next billion users to be connected to the internet. This is important to understand because the constant change in; ways of working (remote, hybrid); type of workers (contract, gig, fluid); partnerships (vendors, third-party); competition; markets; customer needs. As time progresses, the complexity of our world will be ever-increasing. How do we prepare for this? By upgrading our Leadership Operating System

Security is a part of “Built-In Quality”. It is imperative companies deliver rapid value to their customers, but safety should never be dropped in place of speed. There is a way for speed, quality, and safety to live harmoniously together. This requires a mindset and cultural shift, and this shift is the responsibility of the leadership team

How do you recognize when leadership is happening? Is it by speech? Is it by action? People can only recognize that leadership is in fact happening when they share common knowledge principles. What do I mean by this? When you are asked to describe beauty, what do you say? Many will agree that waterfalls, mountains, and stars are beautiful. Why? Because the same knowledge principle is shared that says, “that is beauty”. How does this relate to leadership? We must share common knowledge principles to recognize that leadership is in fact happening. We must point to it and give it a name.

In conclusion, we are all headed into the uncharted, the uncertain, and the unknown. While the task in front of us is daunting, just remember, we are one idea away from changing the world.
