PM Insight-Fremont:

Battling Distractions During Crisis: What’s Your Focus?


Virtual Meeting (Registrants will receive joining details from the Meeting Leader on the day of the event) 
When:   Wed. November 3, 2021 6:00pm-8:00pm

 Last Date for On-line Registration is 11/2

Crisis is a distraction for everyone. It pulls us away from our life focus and towards something else. We must discipline ourselves to stay focused in times of crisis so we can stay focused in times of crisis. Are you implementing strategic plans that give you direction for today and increase your potential for tomorrow?

Anupama will share some insights into what one needs to put behind and what needs to be put before us, based on her own experience during this critical time.  It’s critical that you include your team as part of your strategic thinking. Before you can implement your plan, you must make sure that you have the right people in place. If you practice strategic thinking, others will listen to you and they will want to follow you.


You will learn:

  • Learn how to tune out distractions and mental clutter, & concentrate with clarity on the real issue.
  • Understand how to unleash the potential of focused thinking.
  • Learn how to turn adversity into an opportunity, giving hope to others.
  • Understand how to release the power of strategic thinking.
  • Apply the rule of 5 for Building A Team.
