Welcome PMI San Diego Members!
Thank you for exploring the intersection between leadership and project management.
I hold that:
- Leadership is not a designation, it is a goal-oriented, authentic presence, with enhanced capacity for resilience, resourcefulness, and relationship.
- Leaders take responsibility for their own development. Leadership starts with self.
- There are many different distinctions in leadership, many more schools of thought. I work with individuals and teams primarily on: authenticity, dignity, presence, and resilience; frequently through somatics.
I invite you to continue your leadership exploration and development. The resources below are offered to get you started.
