What Can Lean Do For You? 

As project managers we are often involved in projects to improve our organization’s operational activities. An organization’s operational excellence journey can also be called its journey to LEAN. This journey is never-ending, but it is not difficult. The hard part is deciding to start. In this short talk Rishi Malhotra will share some ideas:

 

 

  • When do you need Lean?
  • What is Lean?
  • What is the difference between Lean and Six Sigma?
  • Value Added v/s Non-Value Added
  • The Eight Lean Wastes
  • Benefits of Lean
  • Visual Workplace
  • What is a Kaizen event?
  • Results from Kaizen events

Attend this dinner event and learn about how you can use Lean principles to move your organization towards operational excellence.

kevinWhat People Really Need From Leaders

One of the primary responsibilities of a leader is to provide their people with the resources and support they need to succeed. But do you know what they really need? What if I told you that most of what you think you know about your people is wrong?
In “What People Really Need From Leaders,” Kevin Ciccotti offers cutting-edge insights and strategies for developing world-class leadership skills, building more resonant relationships, and getting teams to commit and work together more effectively from the outset. These tools are on the leading edge of human behavior and leadership strategy, and are essential to creating sustainable success for yourself and your organization.


Participants will learn tools and strategies that they can begin to implement immediately in order to develop a deeper understanding of the people they work with, and create an environment that allows them and their team to achieve their full potential.

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.

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
