University Center at the College of the Canyons
Speaker: Margaret Meloni
Topic: How to Be a Compassionate Project Manager

speaker meloni margaretWhat is compassion and why does it belong at work?

Compassion builds trust and loyalty and reduces stress. There is a business case for compassion in the workplace and the ability to show compassion is a valuable ‘soft skill.’

If we are supposed to use compassion as one of our project management soft skills then we have to first define what it is, how it relates to project management and hear examples of how to use it on our projects. And that is exactly what we will do in this quick conversation about compassion and project management.
