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.

  • Episode 237 regarding his book Can You Hear Me?, which offers helpful insights on communicating in virtual settings

Thursday Is The New Friday

If you ask someone about how things are going at work, what’s a typical response? What I most often hear is “Busy. Man, oh, man we are busy!” Ask someone how they’re feeling, many people will say, “Fine.” But if they get more transparent, what they’ll often say is, “I’m tired.” Busy and exhausted. Can you relate to that?

In this episode, I’m excited to introduce you to Joe Sanok. Joe is the author of a book entitled Thursday is the New Friday: How to Work Fewer Hours, Make More Money, and Spend Time Doing What You Want. Does that subtitle sound like overselling? Or at least something that sounds nice but isn’t practical? Well, Joe is here today to challenge that suspicion.

PPP 347 | How to Influence Your Boss, Stakeholders, and Team, with Zoe Chance

Improving Your Ability To Influence

One of the common concerns I hear from clients and podcast listeners is related to influence. How can I convince a boss or colleague or stakeholder or loved one to agree to something, especially when I don’t have authority in the situation?

I can confidently tell you that my new favorite book on the topic of influence has just hit the shelves and I can’t wait to introduce you to it. Zoe Chance is the author of Influence Is Your Superpower: The Science of Winning Hearts, Sparking Change, and Making Good Things Happen.

If you love behavioral economics, you’re going to love Zoe’s approach. But what causes this book to stand out is how she makes the science so practical and engaging. By the time we’re done listening to this episode, you’ll be using terms like the Gator and the Judge—and you’ll know what the mother of all misunderstandings is. Zoe shares the bedrock principle of behavior and how you can use that to be more influential. You’ll be more motivated than ever to just ask—but not just make an ask—she’ll share some nuance that’s often missed when we talk about asking. You’ll learn about how to deal with resistance and so much more—it’s a conversation that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks.

Learn more about Zoe and her book at ZoeChance.com.

Lessons from a Successful Project Manager (and Business Analyst)

One of the joys of hosting this podcast is introducing you to a wide group of authors and practitioners. I’m constantly on the lookout for resources to help us on this mission and today I’m glad to introduce you to Donna Gregorio. Donna is a practicing PM and wrote an easy-to-read book entitled The Successful Project Manager: Practical Guidance from Lessons Learned.

In today’s discussion, Donna will tell us how her background as a business analyst feeds her ability to be a better project manager. And vice versa. She’ll talk about what it means to really lead a project—and to be a trusted advisor—not just a task tracker. Donna will share some lessons learned about work breakdown structures, change management, and agile. And she wraps up the conversation with some career advice that I think you’ll find helpful. It's a fun, practical discussion that I look forward to sharing with you today.

PPP 345 | Becoming a Better Leader from the Inside Out, with Darren Reinke

Improving Your Ability to Lead

We often joke in our project management workshops that participants have signed up for a leadership class cloaked as a project management class. So much of our ability to deliver projects comes down to our ability to lead people and teams—regardless of our title or whether team members report to us directly.

That’s a core premise of the People and Projects Podcast--that we’re all leaders—and I’m constantly on the lookout for resources to help you and me develop our ability to lead.

Darren Reinke reached out to me last year to talk about his book The Savage Leader: 13 Principles to Become a Better Leader from the Inside Out. After browsing a copy of the book, I knew this was a guy I wanted to talk with. His passion for leading is clear and his advice is practical.
