About this Blog

I have been a project and program manager for more than 20 years. Over that time, my interest in what makes teams tick, what makes a project team excel, and what makes projects a success has grown. To understand the interactions better, I have studied law, mediation, positive psychology, leadership and of course project management.

I am passionate about project management and its power to bring about change in the world, change for the good.

I am also passionate about teams, building them from the perspective of the individual and as a community.

In this blog I will share theories, research and tools that other practitioners are free to explore, use, or refute! I look forward to an active conversation - and of course to learning more from others. All content is part of my Strengths-Based Project Management (SBPM) model for fulfilled project managers, engaged and motivated teams and successful projects.
