5 Strategies for Staying Productive and Happy in an Age of Shiny Objects, with author Amy Blankson
<p><a href="http://www.PeopleAndProjectsPodcast.com/174"><img style="border: 0px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/peopleandprojects/images/Episode174-AmyBlankson3.png" alt="" /></a></p> <p><audio preload="none" controls="controls"><source src="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/174-FutureOfHappinessAmyBlankson.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /></audio></p> <p>Total Duration 49:26</p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/rss-audio.png" alt="" /> <a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/174-FutureOfHappinessAmyBlankson.mp3" rel="enclosure">Download episode 174</a></p> <h2>Is Tech Making Life Better or Worse?</h2> <p>Tech is ruining our life. Or at least that's what plenty of people are suggesting. There's evidence showing that culturally we're more depressed and distracted than ever, and tech has at least some responsibility for that. Yet at the same time tech is providing rich opportunities to grow and learn. So which is it? Is tech making it more difficult to thrive? Or is it helping us thrive?</p> <p>According to Amy Blankson, the answer is both, depending on how you use it--today and in the future. Amy joins us to talk about her new book <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Future-Happiness-Strategies-Productivity-Well-Being/dp/1942952945/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1492606861&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=the+future+of+happiness&amp;linkCode=ll1&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">The Future of Happiness: 5 Modern Strategies for Balancing Productivity and Well-Being in the Digital Era</a>. In Amy's research, she's found that ultimately the most balanced, satisfied, and happy individuals use five key strategies, not just to survive but also to actually thrive in the Digital Era:</p> <ul> <li>They stay grounded in the face of distraction.</li> <li>They use technology to know themselves on a deeper level.</li> <li>They know when and how to use technology to train their brains to reach their full potential.</li> <li>They structure their surroundings to create a habitat for happiness.</li> <li>They innovate consciously to enrich the world around them.</li> </ul> <p>I look forward to sharing Amy's insights with you in this episode.

<h2>What's So Critical About Critical Path?</h2> <p>If you're preparing for taking the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, you need to know how to calculate critical path by hand.

(Video) Why Project Managers Might Just Need to Call an Audible
<h2>What I Learned This Week</h2> <p>We continue our series of short videos talking about an idea or observation that was learned this week. In American football, a quarterback sometimes needs to make an audible. Back in the huddle, they called a play, but now that they see how the defense has lined up, they see an opportunity to make a change. They make an audible, and as project managers, there are times we need to do the same.</p> <h2>What Did You Learn This Week?</h2> <p>Please e-mail me (show [AT] PeopleAndProjectsPodcast [DOT] com) or leave a message on our Listener Feedback Line (847-550-3747).

Good?</h2> <p>Timeframes. Budgets. Staffing. Project managers constantly face confounding constraints on their journey to deliver a project. Constraints limit our options. They seem to make it more difficult to deliver. And they might be exactly what we need, according to author Scott Sonenshein. Scott is the author of the new book <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Stretch-Unlock-Power-Achieve-Imagined/dp/0062457225/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1486517067&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=stretch+scott&amp;linkCode=ll1&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less--and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined</a>.

If you've participated in any of our project management or leadership keynotes, workshops, or e-learning, you've heard me talk about Dr. Robert Cialdini, the acclaimed influence expert and author of <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Influence-Psychology-Persuasion-Robert-Cialdini/dp/006124189X/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1479948684&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=influence+the+psychology+of+persuasion&amp;linkCode=ll1&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion</a>.</p> <p>In this episode, Dr. Cialdini joins us to talk about his newest book entitled <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Pre-Suasion-Revolutionary-Way-Influence-Persuade/dp/1501109790/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;linkCode=ll1&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Pre-Suasion: A Revolutionary Way to Influence and Persuade</a>.

Be careful--this is a truth test! If someone tells you they always deliver on time, on budget, with all the specified scope, be wary! Delivering projects successfully every time sounds great in an interview but a challenge in the real world.</p> <p>My guest today is Jim Johnson, Founder and Chairman of The Standish Group. Jim has a passion to understand why things break and how to fix them. In this discussion we talk about why projects break, and some ideas on how to improve the likelihood of successfully delivering.</p> <p>You can learn more about Jim and The Standish Group at <a href="http://www.StandishGroup.com" target="_blank">http://www.StandishGroup.com.</a></p> <h2>Call Me!</h2> <p>Why do you listen to The People and Projects Podcast?

Instead of a 30-45 minute episode centered around a book or author, I'll be sharing a 5-10 snapshot of something that I've been learning and what to share with you.</p> <p>In this first Coach Cast, we start with what can be a controversial subject. We're not really supposed to talk about age when it comes to hiring. Or promoting. Or delegating responsibility. But biases can exist. Whether it's a bias that someone seems too old or too young, it's easy for that bias to keep us from making the best decision.</p> <p><strong>Thank you for joining me for this episode of The People and Projects Podcast!</strong> Have a great week!</p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt; margin-bottom: 0px;">SUNDAY AFTERNOON by <a href="http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Podington_Bear/Rhythm_and_Strings/soundofpicture.com" target="_blank">Podington Bear</a> is licensed by <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/" target="_blank">Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 International License.</a></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt; margin-bottom: 0px;">BLANKS by <a href="http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Podington_Bear/Upbeat/soundofpicture.com" target="_blank">Podington Bear</a> is licensed by <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/" target="_blank">Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 International License.</a></span></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=r1Vdrhir7Lc:BbPGX9pM5l4:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=r1Vdrhir7Lc:BbPGX9pM5l4:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/r1Vdrhir7Lc" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

An uploaded picture. A recommendation about a restaurant. A praise or criticism about an organization.</p> <p>This applies in the workplace as well. We relate how a meeting went. How a leader handled a situation (or not). We spread some buzz about a new project release (or fall victim to the growing resistance).</p> <p>We are sharing all the time. But why do we share? More to the point for this episode for us as leaders of projects and people, how can we understand how ideas spread across groups of people?</p> <h2>Get Contagious</h2> <p>Our guest in this episode is Jonah Berger, author of an intriguing book entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1451686579/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1451686579&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Contagious: Why Things Catch On</a>.

I've just found that it's easier to learn when we're enjoying the experience.</p> <p>Yet though I share the name of the famous, albeit dead, comedian Andy Kaufman, I'm not really that funny! I have to work at it. And because of that, there are times when a joke not only isn't particularly funny--it's counter-productive. Perhaps someone is the butt of the joke, so to speak, and they don't like it. Or it was making light at a time or subject that wasn't appropriate.</p> <h2>The Humor Code</h2> <p>Our guests in this episode are Pete McGraw and Joel Warner. They are the authors of a clever new book entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1451665415/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1451665415&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20">The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny</a>.</p> <p>Why is it that some things are funnier than others? When can humor help us and when can it get in the way? Pete and Joel traveled the world to dissect humor across cultures to learn what makes us laugh.</p> <p>Learning about humor is not just for stand-up comics and class clowns. Since we are in the business of delivering projects and leading teams, we would all benefit from learning how to use this important tool for mutual benefit, while avoiding the landmines of inappropriate use.</p> <p>Learn more about their book by visiting <a href="http://humorcode.com/" target="_blank">http://humorcode.com/</a>.</p> <p><strong>Thank you for joining me for this episode of The People and Projects Podcast!</strong> Have a great week!</p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt; margin-bottom: 0px;">I LOVE TO LAUGH from <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000056QE5/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B000056QE5&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Mary Poppins: An Original Walt Disney Records Soundtrack (1964 Film)</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt; margin-bottom: 0px;">BOOP by <a href="http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Podington_Bear/" target="_blank">Podington Bear</a> is licensed under a <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0/" target="_blank" rel="license">Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 International License</a>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 8pt; margin-bottom: 0px;">LAUGHTER by Kirk Pearson and Julia Egan is licensed under creative Commons by <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/us/" target="_blank" rel="license">Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States License</a>.</span></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=T9n2Vgmd5gM:7nXdEJMgu9Q:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=T9n2Vgmd5gM:7nXdEJMgu9Q:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/T9n2Vgmd5gM" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Would you agree that feedback is a gift?</strong></p> <p>It can be difficult to consider feedback a gift when we're busy thinking things such as</p> <ul> <li>"How could they say that? They have no clue how difficult this is!"</li> <li>Or, "Easy for them to say that! They don't have to deal with my stakeholders everyday!"</li> <li>Or, "How dare they tell me that when they've got so many problems of their own!"</li> </ul> <p>We all know intellectually that feedback is critical to our growth and development, but it can be so hard to swallow when it's delivered so poorly.</p> <h2>Thanks for the Feedback!</h2> <p>Our guest for this episode is Doug Stone.

Many other countries have a similar sort of day, but whether or not your country celebrates the holiday is not the main point here today.</p> <p>The bigger deal is the idea. Being thankful. Having a disposition of gratitude. That's what we're talking about in today's cast.</p> <h2>Are You a Thankful Project Manager?</h2> <p>In some of our leadership workshops we'll ask a team to answer this question: "Who is the best among the team at giving out honest and sincere appreciation?"</p> <p>Team members usually find it rather easy to answer this question. <strong>Would your name be the one that gets the most hits?</strong></p> <p>In this episode we talk about some research behind expressing appreciation.

That's a question we need to ask far more often than we do. Getting clarity on objectives can make an enormous difference when it comes to delivering our projects successfully.</p> <p><strong>Well, how about applying that lesson to our lives?</strong> Our guest for this episode is G. Richard Shell, who recently published <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1591845475/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1591845475&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=instituteforl-20" target="_blank">Springboard: Launching Your Personal Search for Success</a>.</p> <p><strong>Do you think success for you is about being happy?</strong> In this episode you'll be challenged to think again, or at least differently about what <em>happy</em> even means. We'll talk about meaningful work and why having a detailed career plan may just not be what you need right now.</p> <h2>Our 100th Episode!</h2> <p><strong>As it turns out, this is our 100th episode!</strong> Thank you for being a part of this learning journey with me. Feedback from listeners over the years has always been very encouraging to me.

Yes women. People who say Yes. Leaders who only want people to say Yes.</strong> There are countless decisions required to deliver projects and lead teams. We make the job significantly more difficult if we fall into the trap of surrounding ourselves with <em>Yes</em> people. Or shooting the messenger who brings bad news. Or any of the <a title="project management cognitive biases" href="http://www.leadershipintherealworldblog.com/index.php/2012/08/bias-in-decision-making/" target="_blank">dozens of cognitive biases</a> that can cloud our decision-making judgment.</p> <p>My guest today is author and professor Michael Roberto.

A good sign that the influence of agile continues to grow is when the Project Management Institute created the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner credential (PMI-ACP®) in 2012.</p> <p><strong>If you are actively involved with agile in any of its many forms,</strong> it's worth learning more about the PMI-ACP certification. And if you're not currently utilizing agile practices, it's worth investing time to understand what it is and isn't.</p> <h2>Welcoming Back Cornelius Fichtner, PMP</h2> <p><strong>In this episode, I welcome back my friend and podcast colleague Cornelius Fichtner</strong>, whom you probably know as the voice of <a href="http://www.project-management-podcast.com/" target="_blank">The Project Management Podcast</a>.

Givers, Takers, and Matchers, A Discussion About Success with Dr. Adam Grant
<h2>Can I Ask You a Favor?</h2> <p><strong>So let's say someone asks you for help.</strong> For a favor, let's say. What's your first reaction? Is it, "Sure! No problem! I'd love to help!"</p> <p>Perhaps most of us would like to think that's how we respond. Could your response vary, based on the situation?</p> <p><strong>Let's modify the scenario. Let's say this person who is asking for help seems, in your mind, to have very little potential to help you in any meaningful way--now or in the future.</strong> Regardless of how you made that assessment, in economic terms, this favor would appear to have very little perceived return on investment.</p> <p><strong>So, would you still help?</strong> Or would you scramble for an excuse to step away?</p> <h2>Welcoming back Dr. Adam Grant</h2> <p><strong>My guest in this episode is Dr. Adam Grant</strong>. We talk about his new book released just this week entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0670026557/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0670026557&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=instituteforl-20">Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success</a>. In this episode you'll hear Adam talk about <em>givers, takers, and matchers</em>, three reciprocity styles that form the basis of the book.</p> <p><strong>I invite you to visit the book's website at</strong> at <a href="http://www.giveandtake.com" target="_blank">http://www.giveandtake.com</a>. You can take his self-assessment on that site to learn your preferred style. Also, Adam mentions work done by Alison Fragale at University of North Carolina.

Mike had a suggestion: what about interviewing practitioners? People who are leading and delivering in the real world?</p> <h2>Insights from Your Peers, Not Authors</h2> <p><strong>Hey, I love bringing you discussions with people like John Kotter, Dan Pink, Kerry Patterson, Adam Grant, and the many other guests we have had thus far.</strong> And we will continue to deliver interviews from authors of books that can stretch and inform us to better lead and deliver.</p> <p><strong>But I think Mike is exactly right!</strong> Some times it can be just as effective to hear from a peer.

Rather, it's attention</strong>. We all get the same 24 hours. It's what we do with those 24 hours--what we put our attention to--that makes all the difference.</p> <h2>The Attention Habits of the Highly Productive</h2> <p><strong>So, what is most worthy of our attention?</strong> How can we use the limited time that we have to be most productive?

But even those who are hiring typically aren’t planning on doubling their staff any time soon.</p> <p><strong>So what if you need more staffing but your company isn’t hiring?</strong> How can you keep up with the demands when the capacity of your team seems to be tapped out?</p> <h2>Contented Cows Give Better Milk</h2> <p><strong>What about tapping into the discretionary effort reserve that most people have but leave untouched in the day-to-day grind of work?</strong> What is discretionary effort and how does that relate to the capacity of your team? In this episode I share a recent discussion with Bill Catlette. This last summer Bill and his co-author Richard Hadden released their new book entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118292731/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1118292731&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=instituteforl-20" target="_blank">Contented Cows Still Give Better Milk, Revised and Expanded: The Plain Truth about Employee Engagement and Your Bottom Line</a>, and there are some lessons for all of us about how we can better engage our teams.</p> <h2>Special Offer: 14 Free PDU's</h2> <p><strong>Hey, here’s the special offer I mention during the show.</strong> For years we have helped organizations improve their ability to lead and deliver through our keynotes and classroom-based project management workshops. Many have used these same workshops to help them prepare to pass the PMP&reg;and CAPM exams as well as get PDU’s after earning their certification. Well, the great news is that our two most popular project management workshops are now available in e-learning.</p> <p><strong>In fact, our Advanced Project Management workshop is so fresh off the e-learning presses that I’m going to give away free licenses to the first 10 people who get back to me.</strong> That means you get some great learning and I get some helpful feedback. If you’d like 14 free PDU’s or contact hours, be one of the first 10 people to contact me.

Everything's a Project, with author and CEO Ben Snyder
<h2>Everything's a Project</h2> <p><img style="width: 300px; height: 300px; float: right; border: 1px solid black; margin: 8px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/peopleandprojects/images/BenSnyder81Cover.jpg" alt="" /><strong>Everything's a Project.... That's not only a great name for a book--which it is--but it's also a great way to look at many things at work and in life.</strong> Looking for a job? It's a project. Need to create a report for your boss? It's likely a project. Looking for ways to develop your skills? You guessed it--your personal development is a project.</p> <p><strong>Now, of course, not everything is a project.</strong> But most leaders would benefit if we thought of our work as projects and applied lessons that we've learned from the world of project management.</p> <p><strong>Well, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0984040404/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0984040404&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20">Everything's a Project: 70 Lessons From Successful Project-Driven Organizations</a> is the title of a book published earlier this year by my friend and colleague Ben Snyder</strong>.

His books are insightful, practical, and even a bit a quirky (in a good way) at times. But I'm confident that if you're in the software development side of project management or leadership, you'll get value from his books.</p> <p><strong>In this premium episode, I follow-up on some issues that Tom and I touched on that are relevant whether or not your projects are related to software development.</strong> Tom's ideas truly span further than that domain. I cover topics such as:</p> <ul> <li>The myth of "The more pressure, the better"</li> <li>Why having only a 50%-70% likelihood of success could be a good thing</li> <li>Why stressed brains do not learn the same way as non-stressed brains</li> <li>Where the line crosses between stress being a good thing and it becoming a dangerous thing</li> <li>One additional factor that impacts workplace stress and productivity (and it's none of your business!)</li> <li>Why it can help to realize that all your team members are volunteer employees</li> <li>Max DePree's secret for learning how effective of a leader you are</li> <li>"It's not what you don't know that kills you. It's what you know that just isn't so."</li> <li>Are we changing people or just amusing them?</li> </ul> <h2>Resources</h2> <p><strong>Resources that I refer to during this premium episode include</strong>:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0979777704/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0979777704&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School (Book &amp; DVD)</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0131568159/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0131568159&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">Know What You Don't Know: How Great Leaders Prevent Problems Before They Happen</a>.

Meeting the Deadline, Part 1 of an Interview with Tom DeMarco
<h2>The Deadline</h2> <p><img style="width: 300px; height: 300px; float: right; border: 1px solid black; margin: 8px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/peopleandprojects/images/TomDeMarco79Cover.jpg" alt="" /><strong>A couple months back I was teaching a PMP&reg;Exam Prep workshop.</strong> One of the participants mentioned that he was reading Tom DeMarco's book entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0932633390/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0932633390&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management</a>. It's a book that I had wanted to read many times since it was originally published in the late 1990's but it never bubbled up to the top of my book list. But when this workshop participant continued to rave about the book, it ended up on my iPad Kindle Reader before the day was done. And in the coming days I couldn't put the book down.</p> <p><strong>If you're not in the software side of project management or leadership, you might not have heard of Tom DeMarco before.</strong> But if you do work on that side of the house, Tom DeMarco has likely impacted you and your job more than you know. He's been a leading thinker and practitioner in this space for decades, and in the next two episodes, you have a great opportunity to hear from this industry giant. Even if you're not in the software development arena, you'll get some practical insights from this exceptionally insightful thinker on how to deliver your projects and lead teams.</p> <h2>More Tom DeMarco</h2> <p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0932633390/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0932633390&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank"><img style="float: right; margin: 8px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/images/covers/TheDeadlineCover.jpg" alt="" /></a><strong>To get your copy</strong> of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0932633390/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0932633390&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">The Deadline</a>, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0932633390/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0932633390&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20" target="_blank">click here</a> Join us in the next episode when Tom will address topics such as knowing what we don't know, dealing with <em>jerk bosses</em>, and what he writes and speaks about but has trouble doing himself.</p> <p><strong>Thank you for joining me for this episode of The People and Projects Podcast!</strong> Have a great week!</p> <p>Total Duration 17:44</p> <p><audio preload="none" controls="controls"><source src="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/79-MeetingTheDeadlinePart1WithTomDemarco.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /></audio></p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/rss-audio.png" alt="" /> <a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/79-MeetingTheDeadlinePart1WithTomDemarco.mp3" rel="enclosure">Download episode 79</a></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=3w-w5DoZEoY:sJPn2BfIo70:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=3w-w5DoZEoY:sJPn2BfIo70:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/3w-w5DoZEoY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Since this is a very special destination, my wife and family have joined me on the trip, which included prior stops in London, Nairobi, and Doha. If all goes as planned, we hope to go all the way around the world as a family over the course of three weeks.</p> <p><strong>While in Nairobi we had the opportunity to spend time with some very close family. And one of the real treats was spending time with my niece Sara Adam</strong>. Sara will soon be starting up her senior year at Duke, but she's not waiting until graduation to make a difference. Despite her age, Sara is building an amazingly cool clothing and accessory business that is based in Kenya. Along with her business partner Anna, they are growing a business they name <strong><em>Judith and James</em></strong>. They are developing marketable sewing skills for vulnerable women, most of whom live in a Nairobi area slums. As these skills are developed, they begin working on merchandise that will be sold in the U.S. and other countries. In turn, the proceeds from that merchandise will produce a sustainable income stream for the women.</p> <p><strong>It's an inspiring model being driven by an inspiring young lady.</strong> Sara is in the process of making a remarkable difference in this world.</p> <h2>How Will You Measure Success?</h2> <p><strong>How do you measure success in life?</strong> As professionals who lead projects, we know that defining measurable success criteria for projects is a very important and helpful practice. But what about life? There will be a day when you've finished your last project at work. Whether it's when you hang up your Gantt charts, so to speak, or come to the end of your life, how will you measure it?</p> <p><strong>It's an intriguing question that is also the title of one of the most anticipated business books of this year.</strong> <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0062102419/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0062102419&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkId=5SPT6UDA7ASX6W57" target="_blank">How Will You Measure Your Life?</a> is authored by Clayton Christensen, James Allworth, and Karen Dillon.

Critical Questions for Becoming a More Effective Leader and Reaching Your Potential
<h2>Another Day in the Salt Mine!</h2> <p><strong>One of the many things I love about my job is that I get to intersect with hundreds of organizations.</strong> As I walked into the office of one my large financial services customers recently, I took a moment to watch the body language of the people as they walked through the doors to start their day. <em>I've learned you can tell a lot about a company by watching the employees.</em></p> <p><strong>Do you want to know what I saw?</strong> In words it might sound like this: "Well, it's <em>another</em> day. I'm going to be working on <em>another</em> project.

In her soft-spoken manner she said, "I just feel like people don't listen to me."</p> <div><strong>I have to admit that the mischievous side of me wanted to say, "<em>Um, what was that you said?</em>" </strong></div> <p><strong>Now, of course, I didn't say that, but let me ask you this....</strong> Since she is quiet it's rather obvious she's an introvert, right? And it's probably fair to say that introversion is likely to hold her back from climbing the ladder, wouldn't you say?</p> <p><strong>Well how about this? The coaching client was a C-level executive in a highly successful organization.</strong> Though she very well may be an introvert, making that assessment so quickly without learning more is any easy mistake to make.</p> <h2>Can Introverts Be Effective Project Managers?</h2> <p><strong>Can introverts be effective project managers and leaders?</strong> In this episode we talk about that with Lisa Petrilli, author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006BDRADK/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=B006BDRADK" target="_blank">The Introvert's Guide to Success in Business and Leadership</a>.

For some, it's setting New Year's resolutions. For others, it's just deciding that this will be the year that you'll do some things differently.</p> <p>Budgets, projects, performance review cycles and many other things in life tend to reset again with a new year.</p> <p><strong>Of course, the truth is that we don't have to wait until January each year for setting new goals.</strong> Each week, even day, provides that opportunity. But the problem usually isn't having the <em>opportunity</em> to set goals. In fact, as you'll learn in this episode, the problem usually isn't having the <em>information</em> we need.</p> <p><strong>New Year's resolutions are famously forgotten by the time you listen to this podcast episode.</strong> In a similar fashion, goal <em>setting</em> is one thing but <em>reaching our goals</em> has a notoriously bad track record. Yet so much has been learned about what it takes to achieve our goals. There are proven, evidence-based insights that can help you reach your personal and professional goals this year. And they can also be applied to help you deliver your projects.</p> <p><img style="float: right; border: 0px; margin: 8px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/peopleandprojects/images/HeidiGrantHalvorsonHeadShot.jpg" alt="" width="150" border="0" /><strong>To help us do just that, I'm excited to share my interview with Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson</strong>.

Learn more about becoming a Premium Subscriber at <a href="http://bit.ly/PremiumSubscribe">http://bit.ly/PremiumSubscribe</a>).</p> <p><strong>There are many things I love about hosting this podcast.</strong> One of them is the opportunity to interact with the experts we interview. You probably notice that I normally include some behind the scenes cuts at the end of interviews to try and give a sense of who these people are. Most are very gracious. There's something about Michael Roberto that truly stands out though. He has great energy, a quick wit, and is everything I would have wanted in a college business professor.</p> <p><strong>In this premium episode</strong> I want to highlight some points from the interview with Michael to help you put the learning into action.</p> <p><strong>First, filtering isn't bad, right? We need it for efficiency.</strong> People say we need to over-communicate but, to an extreme, that can be a bad idea! If you listened to my interview with Cathy Davidson or read her book <strong>Now You See It</strong>, it's clear that we are wired up to put our attention on that which requires it. We would literally go nuts if we tried to take it all in. So filtering of information can be the equivalent of a corporate attention window: what is it that is most important. Let's focus on that.</p> <p>So let me ask you: how do you filter for efficiency? What do you do to make sure the most important information gets to you? From a learning perspective, I focus on a relatively small number of blogs and podcasts. I find those give me regular doses of learning without trying to read everything or attend every learning opportunity. For example, I get great value out of HBR's blog. I use CIO Magazine's “What Are You Reading” section as a starting place for new and interesting books and authors to consider as guests. I use a number of Google's filtering capabilities to give me just the news I'm most interested in. I try to surround myself with diversely interesting people who help keep me informed of their viewpoint. If you are feeling overwhelmed, you might want to think about your filtering systems today.</p> <p><strong>But secondly, of course, filtering isn't always done for efficiency. And it isn't always done intentionally or for our good.</strong> As Michael says, we might by our actions and words unwittingly put pressure on those on our teams to conform to our way of thinking. We have to be careful for how we advocate for certain decisions or positions because our advocacy could cause some who know better to keep their mouths shut--to not speak up because they'll think you are not open to a contrary point of view. A key characteristic of your team must be that every member knows that if they have information or insights that can help you, they can bring it to you without fear of rejection or judgment. That doesn't mean that you will always agree with them or follow their advice. I read a case study from Michael years ago that, in effect, said that people can usually put up with decisions that you make as long as they had a fair say in the process. As long as they're heard, they can better accept what you decide. But if you explicitly or subtly make it clear that you're not open to their point of view, not to mention even giving them the opportunity, you risk making a poorly informed decision that can often surface compliance at best instead of commitment from your teams. Be careful how you may be pressuring people to conform.</p> <p><strong>Third, make sure you're aware of the power and dangers of advocacy.</strong> This filter says that the information is presented in such a way as to advocate for a certain position. Information that might not reinforce the position is held back. Whether from politicians, your senior management, advertisers, a supplier, or someone on your team, keep your eyes wide open for not just what is presented but also for what is not being presented. I've learned to deal with this by asking questions, digging into the data that is presented, and watching for influence techniques such social proof. It's not that I don't trust people when they're making a pitch. But whether it's a resume, a request for something to buy, or an argument for why we should take action, there's almost always some advocacy going on. Make sure you look for dissenting or alternative points of view.</p> <p><strong>Fourth, remember that sometimes it's the other person advocating. Other times it's you and me only taking in the data we want. Confirmation bias is an easy trap to fall into.</strong> Make sure to not fall in love with an approach or decision because it is ours. Cathy Davidson's <em>collaboration by difference</em> is her solution to this, which basically recommends we surround ourselves with diverse points of view that are intentionally looking at different aspects of what's going on. Confirmation bias can be deadly to decision-making. Beware.</p> <p><strong>Fifth, and to many of the previous points, remember Michael's suggestion about getting out to the periphery.</strong> One way to help know what's important is to get out of your office and spend time with customers, or people in remote offices, or with stakeholders. I <a href="http://peopleandprojectspodcast.com/index.php/podcast-episodes/35-episodes/188-rescuing-the-problem-project-with-author-todd-c-williams.html">interviewed Todd Williams earlier this summer about rescuing problem projects</a>. You may recall his advice that, with troubled projects, your team knows the answers. They know how to help you but you need to spend time with them. Extended time. Michael Roberto is obviously a big Churchill fan and his story about Churchill going out and spending time with the frontlines provided helpful insight that had less filtering through the ranks. Of course you have to be careful to not undermine your direct reports or senior management, but getting to the edges or periphery, spending time with those who don't normally have a voice, such as the younger people as Michael talked about. In my i<a href="http://peopleandprojectspodcast.com/index.php/podcast-episodes/35-episodes/80-wired-to-care-with-author-dev-patnaik.html">nterview with Dev Patniak</a> regarding his book <strong>Wired to Care</strong>, he basically said we don't have to be innovative if we have an intense understanding of our customers--what he refers to as empathy. Stop trying to live off your own wisdom and insights. Get to the edges and you'll get fresh insights.</p> <p><strong>Finally, remember Michael's suggestion about talking to the Non's.</strong> That means spending some time with people who aren't currently using the services or your team or company but potentially could. Or maybe they're not fans of you or your team or your project. Why is that? Don't write them off. Insights from the Non's could just help you turn them.</p> <p><strong>I trust it's obvious that I really like Michael's book </strong><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0131568159/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=217145&amp;creative=399369&amp;creativeASIN=0131568159">Know What You Don't Know: How Great Leaders Prevent Problems Before They Happen</a>.

By virtue of their scope of responsibility, they're not in the day-to-day. But that's not always it. I was facilitating a project management workshop at a company a couple years ago discussing this very topic. A participant said it this way: <em>"Around here, it's crap down at our level but it's fertilizer up there! It's not a problem, it's an opportunity!"</em></p> <p><strong>Information gets filtered as it travels up and down and around an organization.</strong> What gets through and why can make all the difference between making good, informed decisions or barreling over a cliff with what we thought was an accurate map.</p> <p><strong>Those of us who have the privilege of leading people and delivering projects need to understand filtering</strong> and my favorite expert for how this works is Dr. Michael Roberto. Michael's book <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0131568159/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0131568159&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20">Know What You Don't Know: How Great Leaders Prevent Problems Before They Happen</a> continues to be one of my highly recommended books for project managers and leaders.

How well did your schooling prepare you for the real world when it comes to work?</strong> I can certainly find plenty of examples where mine did, and yet there are so many lessons that I didn't really start to learn until I spent extended time in the real world.</p> <p><strong>One of the lessons that eventually becomes clear is that managing is not just managing down</strong>: leading those people who report to us. In fact, the higher I got in organizations, the more I found I needed to manage up: in many ways, to lead my boss. <em>That's a lesson I don't remember being taught in a textbook.</em></p> <p><strong>Whether you're a project manager, team member, or senior leader, we all have a boss and learning to lead that boss is a key skill that must be developed.</strong> Earlier this year I had a conversation with leadership expert John Baldoni.

Taking Action on Your Crazy Ideas
<p><strong>Ever get a crazy idea and decide to act on it?</strong> Too often I just sit on the idea instead of taking action. In late May I had a crazy idea: to produce a Father's Day Rap with some friends.</p> <p>Though Father's Day is in the rear view mirror, I thought I'd share yours truly making a fool of myself trying to lay down some rap tunes. After all, it's good to be humbled, isn't it?</p> <p>{youtube}IOwWlw5zPcc{/youtube}</p> <p><strong>Regardless of your aspirations to rap or not, here's my question for you.... What's a crazy idea you've had lately but not acted on?</strong> Why not make it happen?</p> <p><strong>Too often we're held back because we're afraid we will fail</strong>. I appreciated <a href="http://blogs.hbr.org/bregman/2011/06/unlocking-your-success-equatio.html" target="_blank">Peter Bregman's recent HBR post</a> that recommends we don't ask, "Will I succeed?"  Rather, a better question is "Is it worth the risk?" </p> <p>I'm not worried about succeeding as a rap artist or cinematographer.  And I certainly realize there's a risk of acting so silly, publishing it on YouTube, and letting you know about it!  But was it worth the risk? It was a great memory, not the least of which for my friend Bob--the oldest guy in the video--who is now in his late 80's. And we all had an enormous amount of fun.</p> <p><strong>What's your crazy idea? Is it worth the risk?</strong> Treat it like a project and start working on delivering it. Whether at work or home, you might be surprised by what happens when we take action on ideas instead of just thinking about them....</p> <p>Here's to a great second half of the year!</p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/images/AndySig.jpg" border="0" width="100" style="border: 0;" /></p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/rss-video.png" border="0" /> <a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/ItGoesFastDadRap.mp4" rel="enclosure">Download the video episode</a></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=7_yACjG_uXs:FZWsvHhDvKA:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=7_yACjG_uXs:FZWsvHhDvKA:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/7_yACjG_uXs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

"Keep trying or ask for help?" "Invest in a new product or milk the existing cash cow another year?"</p> <p><strong>Whether you're leading teams or projects, we're often faced with what seems like unpleasant trade-offs.</strong> It's not a matter of which option is the best. Sometimes it feels like we need to figure out which option is the least evil! Success with a project, team, or even organization can come down to how effectively we lead when we're seemingly stuck between the proverbial rock and hard place.</p> <p><strong>To help us navigate these situations I turned to Dr. Roger L. Martin.</strong> Roger has been named one of the top 50 management thinkers in the world and is the author of two thought-provoking books, entitled <strong>The Opposable Mind</strong> and <strong>The Design of Business</strong>.</p> <p><strong>Want to be a better problem solver or improve your ability to innovate?</strong> This episode is for you!</p> <p><strong>To learn more about Roger L.

But then there's flip side as well, where we leap from the platform exclaiming, "I hope the bungee cord is attached!"</p> <p><strong>Whether at work or in life, there are an endless number of things we could worry about, and I know plenty of leaders that admit they are good worriers!</strong> It's been said that one of the best antidotes for anxiety is action, and a way to move your team and project from worrying to action is risk management.</p> <p><strong>To talk about this issue I went to one of the clearest and most prolific voices on the topic, Dr. David Hillson</strong>. I've split my discussion with David into two episodes and look forward to sharing this first portion with you in this episode.</p> <p>You can learn more about David Hillson at his website <a href="http://www.risk-doctor.com">http://www.risk-doctor.com</a>.

Think Small! An interview with Phil Simon, author of The New Small
<p><img style="float: right; border: 1px solid black; margin: 5px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/PhilSimon44Cover.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="300" align="right" hspace="5" /><strong>I have to tell you: I love running a small company. </strong></p> <p>In today's interview I'll tell the story of a small company that doesn't act small. You may work for yourself, for a small company, or for a huge multinational organization. I'm convinced that your ability to act like a small company is more about how you look at things than it is the number of employees.</p> <p>And that's just one of the themes of my friend and colleague Phil Simon, who recently released his latest book entitled <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0982930232?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=0982930232">The New Small: How a New Breed of Small Businesses Is Harnessing the Power of Emerging Technologies</a>. For years I've found Phil's insights to be fresh, on target, and actionable.

I love the opportunity to look and consider the previous year: accomplishments, challenges, blessings, mistakes, and lessons. It's an opportunity to take a renewed look at the year ahead and set goals.</p> <p><strong>Yet there's the problem with New Year's resolutions</strong>. Ask the average person--and I do in this video podcast with some "man on the streets" interviews--and they'll tell you resolutions don't work. Or at least they don't last.</p> <p><strong>In this brief video podcast I share some key lessons to help project managers and leaders set better goals, just in time for the new year!</strong></p> <p>NOTE: In this episode I mentioned Stickk.com. Make sure to <a href="http://www.stickk.com" target="_blank">check them out</a>!

Networking for People Who Hate Networking: An interview with author Devora Zack
<p><strong>We're now at that time of year when there are often many social gatherings, whether with family, friends, or work associates</strong>. <em>Do you look forward to these times of family gatherings and holiday parties?

That session was worth the price of the whole trip. Great, transformative stuff! I have since changed my listening habits in the car: I listen to management podcasts now. I decided to propose the Outlaw Team idea to my boss who leads an entire division in my company. He liked the idea and had me present it to his weekly leadership meeting. All the VPs liked the idea, with some suggestions. I then suggested action items to move it forward. My boss volunteered me to carry the ball. Yikes! Now I have to try and be the Andy Kaufman of our company. Nah. I'll just be me and see where we get.

When my team leader or manager would mess up in some way, <strong>I would occasionally think, when I finally get to lead a team, I'm going to do things differently! How hard can this be?</strong></p> <p><strong>Then I became a manager!</strong> It was then that I truly realized that it's one thing to talk about leading teams--it's a whole different deal when you have to be the leader and your team members aren't necessarily as motivated as you want them to be, or priorities change, or your senior management seems dim-witted, and you feel overwhelmed.</p> <p><strong>The truth is that leading teams well is difficult work, often under-estimated by those who haven't had to hold the reins</strong>. One of my favorite experts on this topic is Harvard professor J. Richard Hackman. In this cast I look forward to sharing a recent discussion I had with Dr. Hackman based on his book <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1578513332?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=390957&amp;creativeASIN=1578513332">Leading Teams: Setting the Stage for Great Performances</a>.

It's an economy that thrives on tourism and in order to keep those tourists happy and coming back, organizations out here need reliable, skilled, engaged workers.</p> <p><strong>The truth is, the need for engaged, motivated employees isn't just a Las Vegas issue.</strong></p> <p><strong>I've long felt that the most dangerous employee was not the one who has left the company. It's the one who has left the company but they haven't left the company!</strong> It's the people who are just checking in and checking out, day after day, taking up space and leaving a huge amount of productivity on the table. Whether you lead a team of software developers, salespeople, accountants, or doctors, much of our organizational success comes down to how engaged and motivated our front line employees truly are.</p> <p><strong>I'm staying at a very nice, well-known hotel in Vegas. To be honest, I'm not impressed with the front line service.</strong> And you know what? I intersect with enough companies to recognize this isn't just an issue at Caesar's Palace. Chances are your organization could use some insights on how to further engage your employees as well.</p> <p>In recent years I've enjoyed following the employee engagement research and writings of <a title="Project management podcast" href="http://www.wharton.upenn.edu/faculty/grant.cfm" target="_blank">Dr. Adam Grant</a> from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. I had the opportunity to catch up with Adam recently and look forward to sharing that interview with you in this episode.</p> <p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Q2CPM0?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B003Q2CPM0"><img style="float: right; border: 0; margin: 5px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/images/covers/SwitchCover.jpg" alt="Project management podcast" border="0" /></a><strong>In the interview, Adam recommends the following books for follow-up</strong>:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Q2CPM0?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=B003Q2CPM0">Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard</a>, by Chip and Dan Heath</li> <li><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594488843?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1594488843">Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us</a>, by Dan Pink</li> <li><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1578513332?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1578513332">Leading Teams: Setting the Stage for Great Performances</a>, by J.

But we are going even further with the Premium Subscriptions to help you develop and engage your teams.</p> <p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594488843?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1594488843"><img style="float: right; border: 0; margin: 5px;" src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/images/covers/DriveCover.jpg" alt="Project management podcast" border="0" /></a><strong>Here's an example of how you can use our Premium Subscription</strong>: Have members of your team listen to an episode of The People and Projects Podcast before a team meeting. Prior to that meeting, you download the premium content for the episode. This will typically be questions you can use to facilitate a discussion on the topic. In addition, there are usually links to additional resources such as recommended books or articles for follow-up learning. All this makes it easy for you to develop practical project management and leadership skills on your team without breaking your budget.</p> <p><strong>Beyond that, Premium Subscribers are automatically entered into drawings for books and other resources throughout the year</strong>. And, as a <strong>special bonus, you get free admission to webinars</strong> that I lead throughout the year. <a title="Project management podcast" href="http://peopleandprojectspodcast.com/index.php/subscribe/as-a-premium.html">Visit here to learn more about how to develop your team with a Premium Subscription</a>.</p> <p>One last thing!

In the follow-up cast I have Allan walk through a couple specific scenarios relevant to our audience, to apply the model in practical ways.</p> <p>You'll notice part way through the cast that our recording system introduced some background interference due to a technical issue that occurred during my discussion with Dr. Cohen. I apologize for the annoyance, trusting you'll glean many lessons from the interview despite the distraction.</p> <p><strong>I recommend you check out the accompanying website for Dr. Cohen's book</strong>, which you can find at <a href="http://www.influencewithoutauthority.com">www.influencewithoutauthority.com</a>. Please join me in the next episode when Dr. Cohen applies his influence model to two specific scenarios that I’m confident you’ll find relevant to your role.</p> <p>And, one last thing! Would you take a moment to let a friend or colleague know about <strong>The People and Projects Podcast</strong>? I’d love to pour into them as well, to help them lead people and deliver projects.</p> <p>Thanks for joining us for this episode!

<p><strong>Accountability</strong>.<br /><br /><strong>It's an easy word to say, but when it comes to practicing it, whether on a personal level or across an organization, it's often not practiced (or practiced well).</strong> A recurring theme I hear from project managers and leaders is that their organization struggles with accountability.<br /><br /><strong>John G.

Take Back Your Life! An interview with author John Wittry
<p>My middle son Zachary celebrates his 13th birthday later this month. Just this last week I was talking to a friend of his about the upcoming milestone. This friend, who is a couple years younger than Z, remarked, "Man, it seems like we just celebrated his birthday! Has another year gone by so quickly?"<br /><br /><strong>Ever get that feeling, especially as we get close to the end of another year? How did this year go by so fast?</strong><br /><br />I had the opportunity to catch up with a close friend over a cup of coffee recently. He remarked that when he looked at the vice president level above him at his company, all he saw was more work, more stress, and less time with his family. Interestingly, he related <em>"Most people at our company look up one level and say, 'You couldn't pay me enough to take that job! Life is too short!'"</em><br /><br /><strong>Maybe you can relate. Either you're already experiencing that frantic pace or you look at the next level and agree that the price on your life isn't worth pursuing a promotion.</strong><br /><br />Certainly this reality hurts companies. They are losing leadership potential because they are losing perspective on what it means to allow people to live more balanced lives.<br /><br /><strong>But my concern with this episode isn't your company. It's you. It's my friend, and it's me.</strong> How can we take back our life when it seems that the pace of life is taking it from us?<br /><br />I was discussing this with my friend and colleague Kymme Lightfoot who is a consultant with <a href="http://www.mcgheeproductivity.com/" target="_blank">McGhee Productivity Solutions</a>. McGhee specializes in helping organizations with these very challenges and she hooked me up with partner John Witty.

World of Thanks, a special Thanksgiving podcast episode

Though celebrated this week in the States, many other countries have a similar holiday with essentially the same purpose: give us a chance to reflect on what we're thankful for.<br /><br />The <strong>People and Projects Podcast</strong> is all about helping you to deliver projects and lead teams. So, it's worth asking: how important is being thankful to helping you lead and deliver?<br /><br /><strong>It's critical.</strong> In fact, let's test that out for a second....<br /><br /><strong>Think back through bosses you've worked for in the past</strong>. Or consider teachers you've had over the years, and perhaps even your parents. Out of that list, who jumps out as someone who was stingy, so to speak, with their gratitude towards you? Whether in word or action, they just didn't dish out appreciation very often.<br /><br /><strong>Can you think of someone?</strong> Many people can. What consequences come to mind that resulted from that lack of gratitude?<br /><br />Some two years ago I was talking with a CEO about how I like to send Thank You cards to people. He actively tried to convince me that such expressions of gratitude--especially in writing--were a waste of time, much like "holding hands and singing." He said, "People don't need a boss telling them 'Thank You'. Rather, results speak for themselves."<br /><br />Wow. I can only imagine what he's like to work for!<br /><br /><strong>Go back to your list</strong>. Get that ogre out of your mind and replace them with someone who did a great job of making you feel appreciated. Once again, whether in word or deed or both, they oozed with gratitude.<br /><br /><strong>What difference did they make? </strong><br /><br /><strong>In my experience, those leaders are able to accomplish so much more</strong>. Their teams are more engaged. They can be more innovative because they are working less out of fear and more out of self-motivation. Expressing gratitude and recognizing others for the work they do is a clear mandate for anyone who desires to deliver projects and lead teams.<br /><br />Maybe it's the economy... Maybe it's the growing discontent among many that our political leaders are out of touch. There's no shortage of things to be upset about.<br /><br /><strong>So here's what I've found. Being thankful is a choice.</strong> It's something we need to proactively pursue to avoid being sucked into the whirlpool of negativity and entitlement that surrounds us.<br /><br />In recent years my company has sponsored a gratitude project called the <strong>World of Thanks</strong> initiative. Each year people from around the world write in to answer a very simple question: "What are you thankful for?"<br /><br />Though the answers vary widely, I always get great feedback from people about how they find it refreshing to take a moment to participate in the project as well as read the results from young and old alike.<br /><br /><strong>As many of you know, this year we opened it up for people to call in with their message so we could include their thoughts in this podcast</strong>. For all that called in or just replied to the invitations with messages on LinkedIn, Facebook, or e-mail, thank you for participating.<br /><br /><strong>And now, it is my pleasure to share with you the voices of your fellow podcast listeners as they answer the question, "What are you thankful for?" </strong><br /><br /><strong>Have a very Happy Thanksgiving! </strong></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=Jg9ocVY9RZA:nzFmC4nVSrI:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=Jg9ocVY9RZA:nzFmC4nVSrI:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/Jg9ocVY9RZA" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Is Failure an Option? An interview with Ralph Heath, author of Celebrating Failure
<p><audio preload="none" controls="controls"><source src="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/15-CelebratingFailureWithRalphHeath.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /></audio></p> <p>Total Duration 28:27</p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/rss-audio.png" alt="" border="0" /> <a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/15-CelebratingFailureWithRalphHeath.mp3" rel="enclosure">Download episode 15</a></p> <p><strong>OK, here's the situation.... </strong>You're the security guard at a data center, giving a new security guard a tour of the facility. Near the end of the tour you point to a button on the wall. The button is labeled "Do Not Push". While looking back at the new guard you remark, "See this button? Make sure you never pu...."<br /><br /><strong>Oops. You accidentally push the button.</strong><br /><br /><strong>What happens?</strong> I'll tell you what happens. Lights out. Systems go dead—immediately. No nice shutdown. You turn pale—you know this isn't good.<br /><br /><strong>There's more to the story</strong>. The systems people can't get the servers restarted right away. When they do, there are problems with the network. Your company is unable to process transactions.... not for 1 hour. Not for 2 hours. <strong>It's not until 15 hours later that transactions are flowing through the system.</strong><br /><br /><strong>Sound scary? This isn't a made up story. It actually happened.</strong> Thankfully, you're not in it. But let's say you were... When you get called into the bosses' office, what do you expect them to say?<br /><br />What are the odds you'd hear them say, <em>"Kelly, get in here. I want to thank you for helping us see how incomplete our disaster recovery plans were. If it wasn't for you, we would have gone on, maybe for years, falsely thinking we had everything buttoned up. You also helped us learn that our shutdown button is too accessible. We'll put together plans to fix that. <strong>Kelly, from all of us in senior management, thank you very much!</strong>"</em><br /><br /><strong>Not likely? You're right.</strong> In fact, in the real world version of this story, the accidental button-pushing security guard got fired. Enough money was lost that management decided "Someone must die! We need flesh!"<br /><br /><strong>Was this the best way to respond?</strong> Though normal, does it fix the problem by firing the guard? <em>My guess is the new guy never pressed the button!</em> But did it really fix things? Or did it just assign blame.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.ralphheath.com/" target="_blank">Ralph Heath</a> is the author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1601630646?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1601630646">Celebrating Failure: The Power of Taking Risks, Making Mistakes and Thinking Big</a>. Just the name of the book made me want to interview Ralph! How often do you hear <em>Celebrate</em> and <em>Failure</em> in the same sentence?<br /><br /><strong>When things go wrong--even in a big way--what's a leader to do?</strong> Can we really celebrate failure without creating a culture of complacence? Could the way we react--such as firing someone in the name of accountability--actually create additional dysfunction?<br /><br />These are issues that Ralph wrestles with in his book.

How often? How can we help this team truly work together and feel like a team?</em> It's a real challenge for those who desire to excel at delivering projects and leading teams in today's virtual workplace.<br /><br /><strong>I've had to learn many lessons the hard way</strong> while managing distributed teams that include offshore development. What I've learned over the years is this: great teams, whether located together or spread out across the globe, don't just happen. We have to absolutely be intentional about forming, developing, and maintaining them. If we don't we always leave much needed productivity on the table.<br /><br /><strong>These days when I'm looking for fresh insights on virtual teams and leadership I turn to my colleague Dr. Karen Sobel Lojeski</strong>, author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470193956?ie=UTF8&amp;tag=peopandprojpo-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=0470193956" target="_blank">Uniting the Virtual Workforce: Transforming Leadership and Innovation in the Globally Integrated Enterprise</a>.

How engaged would you say the people are in your organization?</strong><br /><br />Each workplace is unique but here's a dose of reality: Some research shows <strong>only 29% of North American employees are fully engaged. That's a lot of productivity being left on the table.</strong><br /><br /><strong>Particularly during challenging economic times, it's essential for our teams to be fully engaged and committed to project and organizational success.</strong> But how are they going to go the extra mile if they aren't engaged?<br /><br /><strong>One of my heroes in business over the years is Kenneth W. Thomas.</strong> If you've sat through any of my leadership or conflict management sessions, you've likely heard me refer to Ken.

Why Social Networking Matters
<p><audio preload="none" controls="controls"><source src="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/01-Social_Networking.mp3" type="audio/mpeg" /></audio></p> <p>Total Duration: 11:38</p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/PeopleAndProjects/images/rss-audio.png" alt="" /> <a href="http://traffic.libsyn.com/peopleandprojectspodcast/01-Social_Networking.mp3" rel="enclosure">Download episode 1</a></p> <p><img src="http://www.i-leadonline.com/images/SocialNetworkCollage.jpg" alt="" align="right" />A common theme across my executive coaching clients is related to networking. Often it comes down to the sense there's not enough time to network.<br /><br />"Nice idea but I'm too busy!"<br /><br />But when I, as a coach, push back on this bias, here's what I find: It's not a time issue. Rather, it's a perception issue. We prioritize those things that we perceive will provide the best return for our attention.<br /><br />Bottom-line: networking is often not perceived as sufficiently valuable to justify the investment of time.</p> <p>Social networking tools provide a technology to facilitate networking. But what are some ways to use these most effectively? How can I make sure I don't waste my time with them? This podcast discusses strategies to help you more actively leverage the power of social networking to enhance your career and improve your ability to lead and deliver.</p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=IRRcxr2eSbs:cKo5dQEvPNw:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?a=IRRcxr2eSbs:cKo5dQEvPNw:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/PeopleAndProjectsPodcastBlog/~4/IRRcxr2eSbs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
