Having experience in project management for 20+ years (see my LinkedIn profile), underwent a lot of training, I often found myself thinking that all the beautiful and correct formulas, graphs, words and approaches, not always work in practice. Practising meditation for third decade, first of all I’m used to look for answers inside. Sitting at a regular training on Change Management by Carnegie Mellon University, I thought that in the classical approach of project management something important remains behind the scenes – a very large area for the development of our strong qualities to make all these beautiful schemas work. Everywhere it’s stressed out that we must have the willpower, ability to maintain poise under stress situation, to have intuition – all for the effective management … But in classic books on project management, you will not find the answer to the question – how to develop them?
Thus idea came to me – to expand classical picture of management for the development of the necessary inner qualities through meditation. If you want the latter concerns the content, filling, while the science of project management is a beautiful frame or shape.
I formed my own training course, where I tried to overview the major areas of project management and to build a necessary vector for the development of the inner approach, essential qualities for complete picture and effective management. Thus synthesis of management and mediation came into existence. Or, if you use the scientific language, the practical application of spiritual practices for project management. This is my idea of an Esoteric Project Management.
Spiritual and meditation exercises, which I’m using in trainings, mostly taken from my Master Sri Chinmoy works. And of course, verified in my life.
In April 2015 the book Esoteric Project Management came out, which is available now at Amazon.
