meeting slides can be downloaded.
Leading and managing strategic projects
has never been easy business. Now we’re told to “transform” project
management so we can do more with less, deliver exponentially more value,
and of course always keep things on time and under budget while dealing with
mergers and downsizing, unrealistic expectations, disengaged project teams,
and a pace and workload that seems to increase every time we turn around.
In fact, there’s one factor that has been proven to be at least twice as
important as pure intellect and expertise for achieving high levels of success,
and that’s understanding how your thoughts and behavior affect your own performance
and that of those around you. You’ve probably heard about Emotional
Intelligence (EI, or EQ, depending upon which expert you’re following), and
you may have thought, hey, it sounds cool but who has the time?
According to the experts, and cited by executives at Google, GE, and hundreds
of others, how you ‘Show Up’ in the work place from a behavioral perspective
is anywhere from 2 to 10 times as important as your job-related expertise.
“Emotional Intelligence is one of the best predictors of success at work
and fulfillment in life and it is trainable for everyone.” – Chade-Meng Tan,
Google Chief Engineer who created their People Ops “Search Inside Yourself”
training, one of the longest waitlisted courses at Google.
