Vidya’s presentation, Leadership starts with you – AMP up your game at work, focused on pushing boundaries and reaching your potential.

Vidya demonstrated in her interactive presentation how participants can use her SHIFT approach to develop their potential, build a better version of themselves, and live their best life.

Vidya’s SHIFT approach involves:

  • S – Set the stage for success
  • H – Exploit the hidden gems of your story
  • I – Ignite the power to influence change
  • F – Feel the difference
  • J – Think BIG picture

She explained how project managers can use the AMP (Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose) strategy to achieve success through intrinsic motivation to overcome their own limitations. Vidya explained the aspects and cited successful examples of AMP at work in several professions:

  • Look for opportunities to be proactive at work.
  • Focus on skills that increase your importance and contribution to the job.
  • Find your “why” and it will ensure you wake up energized to face the day.

Vidya shared a clear roadmap for achieving personal development, improving team relationships/dynamics, and ultimately achieving job satisfaction.
