Communication as a Leadership Tool
PMI Olympia Chapter is excited to welcome Jason Scott to our May dinner meeting. Are you tired of hearing that most Projects fail because of poor communication? The frustration you feel is probably because you instinctively understand the following:
- Projects don’t fail, they don’t have a heart beat or social security number. People fail…
- Communication is simply the vehicle we uses to lead…
- Blaming failure on communication is the greatest obstacle to addressing the lack of leadership skills that are causing Project failure…
When organizations focus on improving communication they generally add process and guidelines that won’t necessarily improve their Project, Program and Portfolio Managers leadership skills. However, when organizations focus on developing the leadership skills of each of their individual team members… It is much more likely that the Leadership Quotient (LQ) will increase in their organizations leading to fewer failed Projects. This vignette will provide the audience with 4 simple game changing tecniques to earn credibility and 8 leadership tecniques that can be put into practice immediately. This vignette will teach that we don’t just LEAD up, down and across… It will teach how to HELP up, down and across.
Disclaimer: This vignette is not for those that are afraid of heights, don’t think Saturday Night Live is funny, aren’t interested in developing mad skills or crybabies! The session will be conducted in a remote region of the city with no access to the “Waaaambulance”!
Because… 120VC exists to create world class LEADERS!
Jason Scott (120CPM, 120CPgM, PMP, CSM): As a Parent, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist and CEO, Jason Scott’s PURPOSE is to teach the world to build efficiently and cost effectively. To enable his clients to build the best products for their customers, create meaningful jobs that his employees love, and run a company for his shareholders’ that does more for the world than generate profits and dividends.
In 2000, at the age of 27, he founded 120VC. Jason has been responsible for the success of several hundred million in portfolio for 120VC clients. Developed the 120VC practice standards, and trained hundreds of Project Portfolio Management practitioners. Jason is the author of the “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management” and is a frequent guest lecturer at the USC Marshall School of Business and a highly sought public speaker.
In 2013, Jason launched the 120VC Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit focused on training transitioning armed forces members and under-employed Project Portfolio Management Practitioners in Project Management best practices. The Foundation volunteers train program participants, develop relationships with local business, and schedule interviews for Foundation Program graduates at no cost to the hiring organizations or the program participants.
Jason is grateful to the 120VC Foundation volunteers, his entire team, his clients and his shareholders, because they allow him to realize his PURPOSE every day.
