This is REBowman.com, the “professional interest” website for Robert E. Bowman-Labbie (professionally – Robert E. Bowman). I use this site to explore personal productivity, living intentionally, and managing projects and programs.
Special interests include: aligning values with action, cultivating “flow” and focus, organizational methods and tools, and the program vs project vs task mindset. Often information will be backed up by links to quality research – but from time to time I hope you will forgive the occasional unsubstantiated personal anecdote.
Professionally, my career has largely been in program and project management across a wide variety of industries, but I’ve also enjoyed serving in business analyst and training roles. My current employer provides healthcare insurance as part of an integrated healthcare delivery system, and working these past few years with these colleagues to solve these business challenges ranks at the top of my career experiences. And yes, while that statement is 100% true, I know how it sounds. Well, you don’t have to believe me, that’s ok.
Personally, I’m so happy to have found both the LOML and a fantastic city, after an earlier false start. Sometimes trauma forces us in new directions that prove to be far better than we can imagine at the time. I enjoy endurance running, creative fiction and nonfiction, geeky pleasures, and tech gadgets. I try to live with compassion and kindness.
I’d love to hear from you – whether in a comment on the blog, via e-mail or Twitter.
