The Influencing Formula

by Elizabeth Larson Rich Larson

Project managers may not have formal authority, but they can develop certain types of power and can use it to influence stakeholders, sponsors and other key players. This power relies on building trust, knowing what your talking about, and having the courage to recommend the right things.

Lead With A Story


Better than a slide presentation, a good story can inspire and instruct. For project leaders, the ancient art of storytelling is a neglected tool for explaining initiatives and motivating teams. And if you’re not sure you’ve got a story to tell or the ability to tell it, here are nine tips for overcoming the biggest barriers to getting started.

Independence Day

by Andy Jordan

A significant part of project leadership is providing meaningful opportunities to team members to develop and demonstrate their full potential. But it can be a challenge to balance the need to focus on the work at hand with their desire to pursue new roles and responsibilities. A presentation to stakeholders is a good place to start.
