July 24 2018 Dinner Meeting

CarlaThe 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.

cathynorrisCrunch Time: Communicate Effectively in Times of Stress

When you’re stressed to the max, how effectively do you communicate with your stakeholders and project team members? If you’re anything like most leaders, not always so well. As a project manager, you can use your conversations to build trust and choose words to match the impact you intend, even when you’re stressed. The key is recognizing your stress response, stopping yourself when you find yourself in it, and having the mindset and skillset to communicate in a way that increases your team’s engagement, innovation, and productivity. In this interactive presentation, you will:

• Learn how to use your conversations to keep stress levels down, as well as boost your work satisfaction and productivity
• Understand what happens in the body’s neurochemistry when using statements that increase trust versus statements that decrease trust
• Learn a neuroscience-based conversational model, Conversational Intelligence®, that defines 3 Levels of Conversation, how each Level impacts other people, and when to use each Level to accomplish your goals and build trust

TEAMS and TEAMWORK

Teamwork has a huge impact on the success of a project. Think back to the most successful projects you have ever worked on and likely you will remember that the teamwork was top notch. Yet our checklist of what we need to do as a Project Manager doesn’t always include working on the teamwork. In this dinner session, we will talk about the traits of highly effective teams and explore ways to improve teamwork in any environment. Feel free to bring your horror and/or success stories.

At the February dinner meeting we are also doing our yearly Chapter review.
