7 Habits of Resilient Leaders
PMI-NEW April Virtual Event

APanel

Leading isn’t all cotton candy and lollipops! Most of the time, we’re handed a project without the resources needed to get the job done. It can be stressful, it can be taxing and it can keep us from enjoying what (should be) a good day. If you want to lead others, you have to lead yourself first. We are no good to our teams if we’re not running at our optimum and are weighed down by all the stress that gets thrown at us.

At our April chapter meeting, retired Naval Officer and resilient leader Chip Lutz will share his experiences leading high performing teams -- achieving critical objectives under stressful conditions. This fun program shares the 7 habits that resilient leaders consistently do to lead themselves first, get past the crap and create environments where they and their teams flourish.

 

 Learning Objectives:

  • Apply strategies to decrease conflict within teams
  • Break down barriers to communication in order to increase effectiveness
  • Understand and apply the underpinnings of leadership and human relations

PMI-NEW February Monthly Event

APanel

Recent studies in cognitive neuroscience have reinforced the understanding that culture is an invisible lens, influencing all of our choices, attitudes, behaviors, and assumptions. Meanwhile, diversity can either be seen as a great benefit to creativity and strength to be nurtured, or a minefield to be avoided. Join us for our February Monthly event as we hear from Dr. Cooper Wakefield on the topic of culture awareness and it's impact on our world and our work.

 

 

This presentation demonstrates the following:
•  A lack of cultural self-awareness is normal but precarious
•  A lack of cultural awareness inhibits communication processes
•  Cultural training can increase self-cultural and other-cultural awareness
•  Cultural awareness can lead to significant benefits in interpersonal and workplace relationships
•  The IDI, a tool for assessing and improving an individual's or organization's cultural competence, provides functional data to increase cultural competence


Learning Objectives:
• Awareness of the consequences of culture in today’s world
• How our brain hides cultural concepts from us
• How we can increase cultural awareness to improve communication

We hope to see you there!

Attend our November Chapter Event to understand how multitasking impacts both our personal and professional lives.

Business Intelligence for Project Managers

APanel

As businesses become more data-driven, they generally want to use their data for faster decision-making and business process improvement. Modern data analysis and business intelligence (BI) involve integrating data from disparate sources, and harnessing it for analysis & decision making usually with the aid of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW). An EDW is the foundation for BI needed to support timely reports and supply various analytics applications with trusted, integrated data.

Join us this October as we learn about EDW from guest speaker Rakesh Kaushika, a local professor with hands-on experience using EDW and putting data to work.
