Meditation Techniques in Project Management = Esoteric Project Management
I have often found myself thinking that all the beautiful approaches in project management are often incomplete in real life. This is not because they are wrong. Quite often they just do not reflect an integral approach that includes the inner dimension as well.
I began to think how to improve the classical approach to project management. I see it by including the development of inner qualities to help ensure the approach is integral. Everyone can agree that willpower, the ability to resist stress, having insight and intuition can make an enormous contribution to effective management. But few, if any, books on project management address the development of these skills. At the same time, books on meditation don’t discuss project management.
Thus I have tried to address the main areas of project management and discuss the improvements that could result from applying the appropriate inner qualities that can be developed through certain meditation techniques and exercises. The result is an interesting synthesis of meditation and project management. Or, to put it another way, the application of spiritual practices to project management. This is my definition of Esoteric Project Management.
To give you an example of what you will find within this approach:
- developing a Vision
- transcending time
- acquiring Energy from Above
- leadership from a spiritual point of view
- development of inner strength
- development of intuition and receptivity
- and many more!
