Instructor's Bio

Mladenka Dokic is a member of Engineers Yukon. She comes with twenty years of experience in construction, project management and engineering. Throughout her career she worked in various engineering disciplines and roles in remote, mining, and urban settings, including equipment operator, labourer, project manager and professional engineer. Over her years, she noticed a trend. It did not matter where she was working, or if she was working with the private or government sectors, the success of a project depended on the ability of stakeholders to work collaboratively. The bottom line is that our personal lives affect our work lives and vice versa, therefore, if the mental health and wellness of the worker suffers, so too does the success of the project. Outside of engineering and project management, Mladenka is passionate about working with people and businesses navigate obstacles and transitions. She helps them embrace change by getting clear on what they want and guides them to move forward with awareness and clarity to attain their goals and resolutions.
