Project Management Insights provide Project Managers with tips and ideas on how to be better leaders. You will also find lots of useful guidance on strengthening your relationships within and around your whole project, not only with your team but also with your key stakeholders. Episodes will be published weekly.
Do You Have the Right Amount Of Conflict On Your Project?
Did you know there is a 'right' amount of conflict to have on a team to make it work effectively? Too much and it doesn't work. Too little and there's no team cohesion either. Let's talk about what is the right amount and the impact of that.

Are You Setting Your Project Up For Success?
I am guessing you are looking at what a project is from the wrong angle and therefore only setting it up for failure? Why am I saying this, because most people look at a project from the outcome or delivery end, the 'how' first. What is really needed to set a project up for success is to fully understand the 'What' and 'Why'.
How Would You Deal With a Very Difficult Sponsor?
Often we can have a Project Sponsor that wants everything or wants to control everything. Or maybe they are difficult by not being engaged AT ALL.
In this episode, I am joined by Jennifer Jones as we talk about Jennifer's most difficult sponsor, one who wanted to know every detail of what was happening, and how she dealt with that. And ultimately, what she learned about herself and her team in the process.

How Do You Best Manage Your Project Pipeline
You may, or may not, have a formal project pipeline. That's okay. Let's look at the best way to manage to have any new project just dropped on you, when you already have projects, or a project, that you are working on. Back to visibility and prioritization which I have spoken to you about before.

Are You Scared Your Project Will Fail?
Do you fear failure, even before you have started your project? Perhaps you notice that your fear arises during your project work?
Fear doesn't work on projects. It has the effect of shutting down project success. Let's talk about why.

Do You Trust Your Teams Work Output?
We've shifted from the space of seeing people in the office to having them work remotely. Do you trust that they are working and doing what they need to be doing? It's a big shift for a lot of companies or businesses. And yet, in my experience workers who have the flexibility to work within their own time frames are more productive than needing to fit in the standard 9-5 business day.
