How To Master The Most Important Skill For Success

What is one thing that, if you did it more often, and encouraged your team to do it more often as well, would make a significant difference in your success, personally and with your projects? Earn more free PDUs? No, you are doing that right now!

Dr. Wayne Baker suggests it's this: we need to ask more often.

Wayne is the author of the new book All You Have to Do Is Ask: How to Master the Most Important Skill for Success. I consider it a must-read book and look forward to sharing this discussion with you. Learn more about Wayne and his book at https://www.waynebaker.org/.

We Often Aren't Clear What the Argument Is About

"Though many arguments seem to be about matters of substance, they're often just disagreements about the meanings of words." That's from Peter Boghossian, and I'm prepping for an interview with Peter on Friday about his book How to Have Impossible Conversations. In this brief video, I discuss that quote and a couple of ideas around it.

PPP 276 | Why Are We Yelling? Author Buster Benson on How to Have Productive Disagreements

Sometimes Christmas Isn't So Merry!

I'm publishing this episode at a time of year when there are often family gatherings, and in today's polarized, politically correct culture, there can easily be anxiety about someone--you know, that person--bringing up a controversial subject and things devolving into an argument.

Whether it's gatherings with friends and family or difficult stakeholders, we need to get better at having productive disagreements. Our guest today, Buster Benson, suggests it's the most important meta-skill to develop. Buster is the author of the new book Why Are We Yelling? The Art of Productive Disagreement. I consider it a must-read book and look forward to sharing this discussion with you.

PPP 275 | Turning Stakeholders and Team Members Into Fans, with author David Meerman Scott

Total Duration 51:30

Download episode 275

Do Project Managers Need Fans?

So what are you a fan of? Hmmm. Maybe a sports team comes to mind. Or a musical artist. For example, I’m going through a Chance the Rapper phase right now—really enjoying his music. I’m a fan.

Maybe it’s a local restaurant or a celebrity or, ahem, a podcast host. Ha!

But when we think of fandom, we often think of someone famous, or a famous brand. But could it be that leaders of projects could get benefit from learning about how fandom works?

That’s the premise of today’s episode. We’re hearing from David Meerman Scott today about his book new Fanocracy. It’s a book that probably wouldn’t have otherwise come up on your radar screen since it would appear it’s directed more towards brand managers and marketers.

But how about this? What if you could turn your stakeholders into fans of what your team is creating? Further, what if your team members were walking billboards for your company and your products? The science around fandom might just be more relevant to you than initially apparent, which is why we’re talking with David today.

PPP 274 | The Fearless and Irreverent Project Manager, with author J. Scott

Download episode 274

Earlier this year we started using a time tracking solution called Hubstaff and, I have to tell you, it’s amazing. They now offer a project management app called Hubstaff Tasks. It utilizes the best parts of Agile to help you and your team get work done in a way that removes the hassle and just makes sense. Hubstaff Tasks utilizes Kanban boards like so many other PM tools out there but they’ve added extra features like automated workflows that let you move projects through the workflow and automatically assign tasks to whoever needs to work on them next, all with one click.

Hubstaff Tasks also has a Sprints feature that allows you to organize all your tasks into a true agile weekly Sprint. Oh, and here’s a new feature they just added where you can set daily Standups to cover the three golden questions in the agile world: “What did you work on today?”, “What will you work on tomorrow?”, “Have you run into any roadblocks?”

Hubstaff Tasks only launched this past June and there are already thousands of organizations already using it. And here’s the cool thing: since they’re still so new, anyone can start using Hubstaff Tasks today completely free, regardless of team size. Head over to hubstafftasks.com/projects to learn more. Thanks!

It's About Leadership

I often say in our project management workshops that they’re really leadership workshops cloaked as project management workshops. I say that because so much of our ability to successfully lead projects doesn’t come down to our ability to define and calculate the critical path. It isn’t just having a project charter. It’s more about how to facilitate and influence stakeholders to get an agreed-upon charter. It’s not about having the perfect risk register format. It’s about fostering a culture that allows risks to be talked about and dealt with.

My guest today is J. Scott, author of The Irreverent Guide to Project Management. J shares some helpful insights in this episode about how to lead and deliver.
