Stay Clear of Negative Stress in Project Management

As an experienced manager of large change programmes, Susanne has first hand experience of how stressful project management can be. As a result of working in a high-pressure environment for several years, Susanne’s body became infested with stress to the point where she could barely walk. She was forced to slow down and make some important changes in her work and life. She learnt to set boundaries and leave work behind when she left the office. She also got better at delegating, asking for help and began to focus on activities outside of work that fuelled her energy.

Susanne’s story is not unusual. Almost all project managers have experienced stress on their projects and far too many suffer from ill health as a result. Don’t let that happen to you!

In this talk Susanne will share her personal story and provide tips and insights that can help you stay clear of negative stress.
