Having a general idea of where you land on the introversion/extroversion spectrum allows you to identify how you are most likely to gain and lose energy. Your energy levels impact how you perform, your attitude, and how you manage your clients and team.

I was recently invited to do a talk for the Digital Project Managers Edmonton Meetup. This post is Part 1 of the blog version.
Project management is, at its core, people management. Our interactions with our clients and team members are often impacted by how we feel and the decisions we make around how we spend our time.

Learn about the Sacred 7 daily self-reflection, including a downloadable template, and how it can help make you a better project manager.
In case you missed my talk or wanted to follow up on it, check out this post for a link to my slides and additional information and resources such as links to related posts, online personality tests to figure out if you are introverted or extroverted, and a template to get started on your Sacred 7 daily reflection.
