Managing Chaos and Pandemonium in a Complex World

We are excited to have partnered with Lynette Reed, writer, researcher, and advisor on human potential, to present a course on managing the chaos that can easily become a regular part of project management work.

Businesses and organizations across the globe are now moving forward into a new way of functioning, and it’s essential that they find ways to strengthen relationships within their teams. Lynette’s three-part course offers thought provoking insight how groups of people working together are affected by chaos and how to manage it and still be successful. Key elements covered include the following:

  • Understanding four types of chaos
  • Chaos theory
  • Three types of relationship behaviors to strengthen teams
  • Current changes that add complexity to work
  • How-to’s on strengthening working together during challenging times
  • Plus, the opportunity to test your skills

It’s an important conversation that won’t take hours and hours of your time. The course comes in three parts, and each is just 30 minutes long!


Part 1: What Creates Chaos?

Chaos comes in many forms. This 30-minute session discusses the relationship of chaos to the workplace along with the various types of chaos that can occur. The participant will be led to isolate activities or events that create chaos and identify four types of chaos that impact interactions.
