Listening is one of the critical competencies of leadership.

Improving Project Performance Through Assessments Projects Can be Made More Successful by Understanding What is Good and Not Every organization can improve how projects are managed. The question is what components of project management should be improved and specifically, what should change. In any problem solving situation, the root cause of a given condition must be known so that a real solution can be identified and proven assessments can be used to both uncover the root causes and also to form the basis for identification of specific improvement actions. This seminar addresses these topics. A free assessment tool is available and time for Q&A is included. The attendee will learn: • What types of assessments are appropriate for projects and for organizations • How assessments can be used to surface improvement areas and strengths • A process to employ the assessment to allow students to do it right away • How multi-dimensional solutions are defined and implemented Focus Audience: Management, Project Sponsors, HR, Quality Leads and Project Managers Format: Lecture, Examples and Industry Experiences Duration: 50 Minutes + 10 Minutes for Q&A Take-Away: Free Assessment Vehicle and Descriptions of Comprehensive Assessments Speaker: Industry Expert and Seminar Developer
With the move online, we could just begrudgingly endure the meetings and emails. Or, we could build trust, inspire team cohesion, and drive astonishing impact. When we move from in-person work to virtual (or hybrid) work, our communication frequency, structure, participation, and even content change. We risk wasting time in misunderstanding, false-agreement or rework. The Four Discussion Disciplines (4DDs - integrity, courtesy, inclusion and translation) are practices teams can use on email, in meetings, or in posts to address this. In this session, Katrina Pugh (Columbia University, New York, NY) and Chivonne Algeo (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia) will discuss how to lead the 4DDs with your teams, across your organization, and with partners to improve meaning-making and relationship-building.
Join three of our Center Stage podcast guests for a provocative dialogue on how knowledge coupled with unlearning enable innovation. Guest Larry Prusak highlighted the true competitive edge of knowledge, “When you have a project team, it matters far less what an individual knows. It matters greatly what the team knows.” Does this threaten the value of a project manager? Both Larry and guest Barry O’Reilly caution against knowledge becoming stale. Larry says, “Refresh the knowledge you have. Always be open. Always be learning.” But Barry believes you may have to throw some of what you know in the trash: "It’s…the inability to unlearn existing mindsets and behaviors that were effective in the past but now are maybe limiting your success." What does this mean for adhering to methodologies when faced with uncertain requirements, divergent stakeholders and evolving delivery methods? As Peter Temes points out, there is often a tension between managing for efficiency and managing for discovery. Does managing for efficiency hold you back from finding innovative ways of working?
