Staying Focused

One of the biggest challenges we face in day-to-day living is staying focused. There are so many things vying for our attention. In fact, right now, even as you’re listening to this episode, you’re probably doing something else, right? Like driving, working out, going for a walk, maybe even going through email.

Well, to help fight back against those challenges, I’m excited to introduce you to Erik Qualman, author of a book entitled The Focus Project: The Not So Simple Art of Doing Less.

Learn more about Erik and his book at Equalman.com/The-Focus-Project/.

Psychological Safety on Project Teams

It is likely not a new idea to you that there are so many benefits to our projects and our teams when we foster a culture of psychological safety. The idea of psychological safety is straightforward. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Because of that, I’m always on the lookout for resources that can help us make progress on developing trusting relationships on teams and in organizations.

In this episode, I’m excited to introduce you to LaTonya Wilkins, author of a book entitled Leading Below the Surface: How to Build Real (and Psychologically Safe) Relationships with People Who Are Different from You.

In this episode, LaTonya will talk about her notion of a below the surface leader and how that’s different from being a surface leader. She’ll talk about the Terrible Three and how they can get in the way of us seeking to be a below the surface leader. Before we’re done today, you’ll understand how bridging and micro-habits can help us on this journey. And LaTonya will share some ideas about how to be a below the surface leader when you’re working in a culture that is far more comfortable at the surface level.

Learn more about LaTonya and her book at LaTonyaWilkins.com.

PPP 351 | How To Deal With the Predictable and Avoidable Pitfalls Every Project Faces, with Kimberly Wiefling

Scrappy Project Management

Too much project management education--including what you find on bookshelves at stores--is dry. Seemingly impractical and irrelevant. I'm constantly on the lookout for people who are practical and inspiring voices on helping us get better at leading teams and delivering projects.

In this episode, I'm excited to introduce you to Kimberly Wiefling, author of a number of Scrappy Project Management.

In today's discussion, Kimberly will help us understand what it means to be scrappy--and why it's important. We'll talk about some of the predictable and avoidable pitfalls that plague our projects. You'll learn what her Project Success Scorecard is and how it can help you and your team. Kimberly will share insights on dealing with risks and assumptions AND why she recommends you never say No, even to the most ridiculous demands.

Kimberly is as fun as she is brilliant. Learn more about her work at Wiefling.com.

PPP 350 | How to Hire for the Anniversary Date, Not the Start Date, with Lou Adler

Total Duration 47:36

Earn free PDUs while learning how to hire for the long term Download episode 350

Hiring: Your Most Important Responsibility

It could be argued that there is nothing more important than hiring outstanding people. But the sad fact is we generally stink at hiring people. For a host of reasons, we often end up hiring what our guest in this episode calls the 90-Day Wonder—someone who, after 90 days, makes us wonder, “Why in the world did we hire this person?”

How do we avoid that? Well, today I’m excited to introduce you to Lou Adler. Lou is the author of a book entitled Hire With Your Head: Using Performance-Based Hiring To Build Outstanding Diverse Teams. The 4th edition of this classic book has recently been published and it’s filled with ideas that have been perfected over the years.

In this episode, Lou will share some of the biggest myths and mistakes that we make in the hiring process. He’ll explain what Win-Win Hiring is and why it’s critical to the hiring process. Lou will explain the difference between a great candidate and a great hire—they’re not the same. And he’ll explain what a performance profile is and why you need to have that before you write out a job description to fill. And beyond all the advice about hiring, Lou will share some insights to help you if YOU are looking for a job. It’s a conversation I’m looking forward to sharing with you.

Learn more about Lou and his book at LouAdlerGroup.com. Also, if you're in the job market, consider checking out Lou's book The Essential Guide for Hiring & Getting Hired. His course Win-Win Hiring™ for Job Seekers – Getting Ready to Be Interviewed is available for $5 USD--highly recommended!

PPP 349 | How To Communicate With Manipulators, Naysayers, and Other Difficult Personalities

Communicating With Difficult Personalities

One of the biggest complaints people have when working on projects is related to communication. Often people feel out of the loop or they just don’t understand what is being written or said. It’s been suggested that up to 90% of what we do when we’re leading projects is communicating. And I think it’s fair to say, we all would benefit from leveling up our ability to clearly, effectively communicate with our teams, colleagues, and management.

In this episode, I’m excited to introduce you to Tina Kuhn. Tina is the author of a book entitled The Manager’s Communication Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Leading Difficult Personalities.

In today’s discussion, Tina will share why those of us who lead teams and projects are tempted to default to email or other less-rich mediums—and why that causes problems. Tina will share some insights on how to communicate more effectively in your next Zoom or Teams meeting. She’ll help us see that effective communication is not just adjusting to the personality, but also to the situation and relationship. Tina will introduce a few of the difficult behavior types we face and share some advice on how to communicate with them. And we’ll wrap up with some thoughts about dealing with conflict. It’s a conversation I’m looking forward to sharing with you.

Learn more about Tina and her book at TinaKuhnCommunication.

For more episodes on communication, check out these two episodes with Dr. Nick Morgan:

  • Episode 237 regarding his book Can You Hear Me?, which offers helpful insights on communicating in virtual settings
  • Episode 112 regarding his book Power Cues, which provides intriguing insights on how body language and voice impacts communication
