    Calendar of Events

    The world has changed. What we knew as “normal” is gone. But you still need to deliver your projects and satisfy your clients. If you don’t you will not be ready when Covid-19 requirements lift. When your clients and the economy recover, you will be outbid and overrun by your competition.

    Wouldn’t it be great to have a GPS to navigate the most direct route to your ultimate destination, to successful project delivery? The good news is that do.

    In this talk, you will discover how to keep your teams productive through the crisis and beyond by leveraging the science of Human Dynamics. This talk will demonstrate how your thinking patterns, self-talk, and feelings set the stage for your success or failure. You will learn how the old brain responds to threat and how to instantly recover from the Amygdala Hijack. You will also discover how to be more socially aware by identifying the communication patterns of others.

    Self-awareness and social awareness are the critical ingredients for managing teams, managing project sponsors, and keeping your critical stakeholders engaged. With tools to shift your mindset and recognize communication patterns, you will relate better to everyone on your project.

    These methods of interrelating are not usually discussed in business but are critical to keeping your project teams motivated and engaged so you can successfully deliver your projects on time and on budget now and into the future.

    Desk of the President

    Elections will begin only a couple of months from now. If you know someone who would make a great board member, please nominate him or her for a role. A great way to know what that role does is to reach out to a current Board Member and ask questions or to volunteer in the activities that role oversees.

    Be watching your email for requests for nominations. In the meantime, contact any board member and get involved. That is a great way to build name recognition for yourself among the membership. Email [email protected] also to ask questions.
