Marching Through the Madness

It’s one of my family’s favorite times of year again. The time where phrases like “sweet sixteen”, “elite eight” and “final four” dominate the conversations of college basketball fans. Playoff brackets are filled out and games are followed closely. It seems like you can’t get away from college basketball during this month we call March […]

Finding Individuality in Teamwork

There’s a favorite quote of mine by Oscar Wilde that goes, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” It speaks to me, especially as an identical twin, because in my case there is another person who looks like me, sounds like me and of course even shares my birthday. Growing up as an identical twin […]

Professional Resilience

I think we’re all familiar with Murphy’s Law and the idea that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” In the spirit of the season, let’s take Thanksgiving, for example.

The Spooky Side of Project Management

This month, I noticed that one of the cable channels was running a horror movie each day leading up to Halloween and, in the theater, there’s a sequel of the classic movie “Halloween” starring Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s that time of year where people like to be scared. Haunted houses, hayrides and creepy costumes are […]

Working Locally, Thinking Globally

As a project manager, starting at a new company or beginning a new project is an exciting time. It is the true beginning in the timeline. However, unlike in the past where starting new generally meant a new physical location, today your new project location may be in Houston while you are physically located in […]

The Present You Can’t Open

So, is anyone else’s summer flying by? We’re almost into August and while I always envision summer as the time to relax more and take a vacation, it seems that this summer I’ve been extra busy. Believe me, I’m not complaining, I love that there’s been so many exciting things going on at work and […]

Urgently Important…or is it?

Here at FlexPro, we recently held a webinar on how to improve our time and meeting management skills. One of the topics included using what is referred to as the Eisenhower Principle (or the Eisenhower Matrix).  If you’re not familiar with it, the Eisenhower Principle stems from a 1954 speech that President Dwight D. Eisenhower […]
