If the pressures of the job increase and become the norm, it can be easy for project managers to become insensitive to mental wellness issues that could be manifesting in their team—and themselves. It doesn't have to be this way.

We start the new decade with a bang as we present the 13th edition of our annual virtual conference and exhibition! Whether you’re a seasoned PM or new to the field, PMXPO provides an excellent opportunity to learn, network, earn PDUs and broaden your perspective on project management. This year’s show is headlined by keynote speaker Cara Brookins, a bestselling author who rebuilt her broken family by building her own house watching “how-to” videos on YouTube.
Join us for PMI Business Analysis Virtual Conference 2019! This virtual event will explore the latest trends in business analysis and provide you with the insights, resources, and tools to advance your career and enhance project success.
The PMI Talent & Technology Symposium 2019 explores the impact of rapidly changing technologies on the project management profession across industries. Participants will gain an understanding of how to better position themselves for growth and to identify talent for their project teams.
An exploration of project management lessons we can glean from the story of Nehemiah building the wall in Jerusalem. This historical account offers valuable insights that can be applied to modern project management. Incorporating these lessons from Nehemiah's project management can enhance your leadership and project management skills, whether you are coaching others or managing your projects.
In the PMI Global Megatrends 2022 report we learn about the trends affecting our world as a first step to overcoming or embracing them: this included challenges in digital disruption, climate crises, demographic shifts, economic shifts, labour shortages, and civil rights and equality. Project professionals are born changemakers primed to overcome these challenges and help turn ideas into reality. As these trends continue to unfold in the world around us, it is time we turn our attention to how we can supercharge our skills to make change possible. To overcome these challenges project professionals need more than technical skills. They need to power up their leadership and responsive skills and help others do the same. Power skills top the list of the most important capabilities project managers need and include skills such as relationship building, collaboration, strategic thinking, and an innovative mindset. In this dialogue we will explore the question of ‘how can project managers lead for the future of work with power skills’? We will explore how project professionals can transform the way they lead by leaning into power skills referenced in PMI’s Pulse of the Profession 2023 report in order to deliver more value, work smarter and align with shifts happening in the workplace. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of how to lead for the future of work, and with a personal action plan of what they can do to develop their own leadership practice.
As the world is facing a huge gap for 25 million new project management professionals, understanding and promoting the strengths of women and those identifying as women in the profession is critical. Recent data from PMI, presented in March of 2023, indicates that male project managers outnumber female project managers 3:1. Research has shown however that traits like empathy, listening, collaborative and servant leadership, key traits associated with female managers, enhance engagement and collaboration. In this presentation you will learn more about the differences between men and women as managers; the benefits that women bring to projects and organizations; how to improve your boardroom influence with executive presence behaviors; and you will discover tactics that elevate your success as a female project manager.

Question: Our new diversification program involves not only including all ethnocentricities and gender identifications, but people of multiple ages. How am I supposed to effectively manage a team with so many different (and potentially opposing) approaches to working on my projects?
Many project managers start their careers with informal projects, which are managed without using any formal structure, approach or control. Is that an appropriate first step for a potential PM?
PMOs tend to speak the language of projects—and that's a barrier when it comes to engaging business leaders. To have meaningful communications with leadership, they need to intelligently speak the language of business—the language of value.
Many people with leadership titles aren’t very good at leading people. They may be excellent at developing strategies, but building belief, trust and commitment in the teams that must execute those strategies is an altogether different skillset.
Managing a project is like coaching a team. Every decision you make leads to plays on the field that succeed or fail. It’s natural to fear making the wrong decision and the consequences. The TV character Ted Lasso emulates how project managers can overcome fear and lead in a better way.
Disruptive risks are growing in significance and impact, so mitigating or transferring risk entirely is no longer going to be enough. How does our approach to risk need to evolve?
Healthy, positive stress helps us be more productive. But when it starts to turn negative, the wheels can come off of our projects—and our wellbeing. It’s up to project managers to recognize when that’s happening.
Some behaviors have the potential to build respect in any setting. Here we highlight five—while also pointing out corresponding erosive behaviors to avoid.
