New Year, New Goals!

My focus each month this year will be to enhance the content on my website, provide a bi-weekly blog and share podcasts, tips and insights from my new book " Transform Your Project Leadership .

This year will be even bigger and brighter with a yearlong focus on leadership, personal growth, development and strategic business management to share how you can “transform your project leadership” and lead more successful projects.
In January, I plan to continue my virtual podcast tour by talking with Andy Kaufman about my book and how project managers can kickstart their goals for the new year. In February and March, look for new articles about teams over at ProjectManager.com, plus my continuing series on Women in Project Management. Also, tentatively in March I’ll be planning a book signing over at Folsom CoWorking .
So, as I like to say my office is virtual, you can always find me online and occasionally I’ll be available for scheduled in-person appearances for book signings, events and conferences this year. Check my website for links to my blog, articles and webinars, podcasts and more. Check the event calendar for updates, to download my speaker sheet or to contact me directly to assist you with just-in-time remote virtual services as a speaker, author or consultant.

Thanks so much for being part of my community of influencers, voices in project management, consultants, authors, coaches, clients, colleagues, friends and family. 
Voices in the PM Community

The Project Management Community is growing and there are so many experts sharing their voices to help others learn and lead. Every year, I look for ways to connect in the global community to share knowledge, connect in person and virtually and network with like-minded people in the project management community.
Also, this just so happens to be the last stop on my virtual podcast tour for 2018 so I wanted to interview Joe Pusz host of the PM Office Hours Show to share his journey and share what’s in store for 2019.

WEBINARS - Educational Offerings

Over the last four years, I’ve written, spoken and created educational offerings for many clients to spark conversations around some very engaging and emerging topics in all key tenets of the PMI Triangle: Leadership, Strategic Partnerships and Business and Management. Here are some highlights of a few of my webinars and guest blogs on ITMPI , ProjectManager.com and Workfront.

Feedback from the Community

Over the last two years, I’ve written, spoken and created educational offerings to spark conversations around some very engaging and emerging topics. Here are some highlights of a few of my educational offerings.

Self Aware Project Manager – Available on demand. Earn 1 PDU at ProjectManagement.com

This webinar now has almost 12,000 views and continues to clearly be a timely topic for professionals and credential holders.

“This is a very important subject. So many get into the project management role (by accident or purposefully) and become very surprised what it entails to deal with so many different personalities coming together in a quick manner and have to work smoothly from beginning to end. Everyone can be losing their minds, but the PM must be the voice of reason, the calm in the storm...almost perfect. You lose it, they lose it...and you're heading for epic failure. It's almost as if the PM has to have a psychology degree because getting a group of people together that aren't continually pushed/trained to rein in their OWN emotions demand you be on your toes at all times. If you don't know yourself, how in the heck can you ever lead another back to the path of success. Great topic. Thanks!” – Celeste Cunningham

Advice for Women in Project Management

Women in Project Management is a blog series that I’m grateful to contribute to annual to coincide with Women’s History Month. This article was noted by ProjectManager.com as one of 2016/2017 best blog articles of the year.

“One of the most useful we published for one of the most underserved members of our community was a piece on women articles who lead projects. They’re out there, and they’re not going away. It’s still a hard road for women in the industry, but one that is getting easier thanks to trailblazers who have come back from the field with the experience to provide necessary advice for those coming up in project management.” - excerpt from “Top 20 Project Management Blog/Video Posts of the Year - Peter Landau, Content Editor at ProjectManager.com .
