Can You See Me Now?

It’s been a strange few weeks, to say the least. I feel like while most of us have resigned ourselves to the current state of affairs with COVID-19, we’re still scratching our heads in disbelief. So many things have become our new normal: social distancing, ultra-sanitizing, excessive hand washing, face masks. It’s surreal. Life as […]

Professional Resilience

I think we’re all familiar with Murphy’s Law and the idea that “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” As project managers and as managers and influencers of people, things don’t always go the way we expect either. Having the train go off the tracks not only makes the job challenging, but it can also […]

Finding Your Luck In Project Management

I recently came across an article Lynn wrote around St. Patrick’s Day five years ago and thought it was appropriate once again.

Happy New Year! I’m not a big resolution maker, but I do like to sit down and think about the year ahead and the things l hope to accomplish. At the start of the year, I like to reflect on the events of the past year, and then set new goals for myself –both personally […]

Never Too Late to Delegate

There’s an old expression that goes something like, “If you want it done right, do it yourself.” For people like me who tend to lean a little towards being a perfectionist, this adage rings quite true. Maybe you ask your spouse or kids to help with something, then just as quickly drop a quick, “Never […]

Are You ‘Project Manager’ Tough?

As I prepare for an upcoming leadership training, I decided to re-read a management book by author Jim Collins titled, “Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap…and Others Don’t.” Collins discusses how great companies triumph over time and how many good companies fail to make the transition to becoming great. While brushing up […]
