Learning Objective: To inspire individuals to own their talents, leveraging them to benefit others while using influence to protect project success.
Description of Presentation: In times of change, the innovations necessary to facilitate new ideas can wreak havoc on project scope, schedule and budget. As PM professionals, we have tools and techniques at our disposal to adjust, amend and create space to control change. But, as PM’s who lead teams, we must also consider the people in the midst of those changes. What can we do to positively influence the attitudes of the people we lead on projects? This session will drill down on 3 game-changing leadership techniques to eliminate dissension and the destruction of project teams.
Human Work Machine: How our Brains Impact our Success
VP and General Manager, SoftEd US
- Understand why humans have an innate tendency to react emotionally
- Understand how our thinking can be distorted
- Learn how to self-assess and self-manage to avoid thinking distortions
- Learn how to better manage work relationships and work situations
Description of Presentation:
Yes, we are a work machine. We are knowledge workers and the primary instrument that drives the work we do is our brains. Now, how much do you know about how your brain works? In very pragmatic terms: How do you process information? What is your brain’s default settings? Why do we react emotionally even in logical work environments? Even when we can “think” about something what are the distortions that can impact that thinking? Knowing these things does two things; one, it enables you to self-assess and self-manage, you can protect yourself from these distortions and two, it enables you to better manage work relationships and manage work situations. The reality is, it is no longer about what you can do aka your technical skills, it about how well you can get things done, an in all cases that means how effectively you can work with others. Understanding the Human Work Machine is the critical foundation to working with others.
