The Resonant Project Manager
As project managers, we are taught to focus on scope, schedule, and budget. However, studies have shown the main reasons for project failure is almost never purely technical. When we dig deeper into the common sources of project failure, we find it’s rarely a shortfall in technical expertise, but rather a shortcoming in the project leadership’s interpersonal, communication, and self-management behaviors. Leadership is the key to project success and the path to effective and sustainable leadership is through resonance.
The resonant leader style was introduced in the book Primal Leadership by Richard Boyatzis, Annie McKee and Daniel Goleman. The resonant leader manages their emotions, knowing the impact it can have on performance by influencing the mood of those around them. Every project manager needs to have supportive and productive relationships with the project team and key stakeholders. In this session, you'll learn how leadership renewal experiences create sustainable and resilient productivity and high team performance.
