Managers have feelings, too 
When it comes to the ‘struggles of being a project manager’ some tend to think of tight deadlines and unforeseen changes that affect our neatly planned schedule. We focus on time, budget and quality. But not all issues we face as managers are on an organizational level. We might not speak about something we all go through: The different kinds of emotion being a project and/or people manager. Sometimes these can be inner conflicts or open issues within a team. In my session I want to give examples of emotional conflicts that affected me as a manager to show the audience how we can learn from these experiences and how reflecting on the emotional aspect of project management can help to make us a better manager. In addition the session will then open up to allow the audience to participate and share their stories.

After studying Animation & Game and doing a Masters in Media Direction in 2013 I joined Crytek GmbH for an internship. Within the company I transitioned to become a Project Manager. I left this position in 2017 to join EA as Development Manager.
