Speech Title: Connecting the Dots, Recognizing the early signs and mitigating the risks.
Depending on the organizational structure, a Project Manager may serve in a dual role, acting as both the project leader and the resource manager. Regardless of the structure, industry or team make up, company leaders rely heavily on the PM to effectively lead, quote end quote, the “dotted line” team members.
We are going to become students of “connecting the dots”. Learning to recognize the early signs of grief, depression, stress, and other mental illnesses within the workplace so that we can begin to build a culture within ourselves to become the advocates, change agents and supporters of mental wellbeing that our team members often find themselves needing.
1. Better recognize emotional and mental stress among the dotted lines
2. Plan, execute & monitor to proactively mitigate risks within project teams
3. Become the change agent, create a culture that advocates and supports mental wellbeing
