Total Duration 59:44 Download episode 185 A Must-Read Book You know that boss that's driving you crazy? Or that stakeholder? We all have them--people who most charitably could be referred to as challenges. If only we could get them to change, then we could deliver our project, or make progress as a team. If only we could change them.... You might not say it that way, but when we face obstacles in the form of people, we're apt to consider them the problem. But what if I told you there's a way to improve the likelihood of getting that other person to change? And it starts with you? In this episode we're talking with Mitch Warner from The Arbinger Institute about their book Leadership and Self-Deception: Getting Out of the Box. It's a must-read book that I look forward to introducing you to in this episode. Learn more about The Arbinger Institute at http://arbingerinstitute.com/. Also, here's where you can find the other books that Mitch mentions in the interview: The Anatomy of Peace. This is a continuation of the story that starts in Leadership and Self-Deception.

Rank #2: PPP 252 | Nine Lies About Work, with Marcus Buckingham.
Total Duration 43:42 Download episode 252 Lies About Work? There are ideas about leadership and management that you and I have learned over the years that sound reasonable. We do them all the time. Surely they must work, right? For example, having competency models to identify what makes, let’s say, an effective project manager or team leader. Using 360-degree feedback instruments to understand our strengths. That strengths are things we’re good at, weaknesses are things we’re bad at, and that we should focus on the things we’re good at. That people need feedback to improve performance, and that annual cascading goals from the top down to teams is a responsible way to run a business. But what if those, as in all of those, were wrong. Or at least wanting for evidence that they’re right. Or, in the words of today’s guest, they’re actually lies? Marcus Buckingham is the co-author of a new book entitled Nine Lies About Work, and he takes a provocative look at work as it is--not how we’d like it to be. And the results are both challenging and refreshing. Learn more about Marcus and his book at https://www.marcusbuckingham.com/. Let's Stay In Touch! I hear from listeners almost every day, and I love it! How about you and I connect on LinkedIn? Go to https://PeopleAndProjectsPodcast.com/LinkedIn and send me an invite!

Rank #1: Best Practices in Project Management - Coping with Conflict.
Nothing damages a good relationship like a bad conflict. Imagine how much stronger your relationships would be if you really understood what makes people tick—when things are going well and when there is conflict and opposition.As project managers, we are often faced with difficult situations and must constantly resolve conflicts with our stakeholders or team members. Most of us are conflict averse and want to avoid them—and it’s understandable: what you think is the right way to handle a conflict may be perceived as the wrong way by the other person.When you choose to have a nice conflict, you’re applying an approach that gets you the results you seek while leaving the relationship stronger and restoring the self-worth of everyone involved. This approach also strengthens relationships by enabling individuals and teams to deploy their individual strengths while enhancing communication, trust, empathy and productive relationships.Learning Objectives:Upon completion of the lecture, participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:• A practical approach to managing and preventing conflicts.• A relational awareness of conflict that yields tangible results while enhancing relationships.• Ways to identify conflict triggers in oneself and others.Speaker Bios:Greta Blash is a certified Project Management Institute (PMI) PMP, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner and PMI Professional Business Analyst, and has taught project management, agile business and business analysis certification courses worldwide.
