by David Colliquet, Robert de Quelen
March 06, 2018 | 61:58 | Views: 1,283 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.96 / 5

Intercultural gaps threaten many projects. National cultures, job cultures, enterprise cultures, generational cultures: any gap in those components can lead projects to face culture clashes…and additional problems. Yet, project managers can not only actively manage those gaps, but also leverage them and thus extend leadership skills. This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.

by Christopher Cook
February 14, 2018 | 59:48 | Views: 5,318 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.54 / 5

The 80/20 Principle, also known as the Pareto principle, states 80% of your outputs are derived from 20% of your inputs. In other words, the majority of the tasks you get done or products your produce are a result of only a handful of activities. This presentation is designed to give you five rules to make better decisions using this principle. You will start to realize how few decisions are actually important, and when they are essential, default responses are already in place. Also, this process will help you determine what is working (double down) and what is not (change early).
