Natalya Cappellini on Developing an Entrepreneurial Mindset

"I'm so excited to have you on the show. Welcome to dose of. Thanks rich chevy to be here. I'm always excited to talk with Entre preneurs in father four daughters. And i'm always trying to push this kind of entrepreneurial mindset two daughters. They haven't embraced it. Fully some have a little bit but I'm always. It's always fun to talk to two women who've kinda brandao starting to own and you said something really cool in the prerecording when we were talking a little bit about why you branched out and like you kinda tired of working in the toxic culture of the real world and you stepped on your own. So congratulations for that. Tell me a little bit about that. When was that. How long ago was that. So when we moved to california in two thousand fifteen media started working for global project management company and i it was just was working insane hours for three and a half years and things were being done that you know. Were very complicated things that were being done that were a bit shady. And and i. I wasn't on board and i thought you know all this stress stemming from these things that it doesn't have to be this way while it can just be simpler. You know you just you just pay people on time if you just A treat people fairly you know and and manage your expectations and have trust back and forth. It doesn't have to be so hard you know my industry construction. I thought could be very very simple. And so that's what i did when i went out on my own in two thousand eighteen and started gerardo design build throughout design and It has been easy it has been you know a really straightforward and i have a great group of subcontractors. Have a great group that works for me works with me vendors. Suppliers clients amazing clients. And it's been it's been great And i did realize that there is an easy way to do it. And it's a it's just be fair and be a good person and the work will come and everybody will be happy. I love that. I mean it. You know. I love how you said that it was easy. I'm glad that the leap seemed easy for you. I mean i mean a lot of people when they have they feel that frustration of working in a toxic environment where they feel a calling may be or that. I know i could do this better than i've had numerous entrepreneurs that i've talked to said that i i knew i can do this better. I love that that's a catalyst to get somebody to take the leap but gosh dang for everyone. That takes a leap. There's probably four or five that get stuck and they don't take it. Was it easy for you to leap off that clip not knowing the parachutes gonna open. Yeah i mean for me. It was like well. I'm tied to the salary that i'm getting right. Like twice a month and a steady paycheck. But i'm also working like eighty to ninety hours a week sold airlie sleeping up at three. Am every morning flying back and forth from northern california to southern california on sunday nights like sleeping at the office. I mean it was just stupid and you're all for for my life to be difficult bill because you know you think you work that much in like you've got control of everything but things are being done at the company outside of my realm and making my job harder. It's like working hard and everything's harder. Why does it have to be like this. And so for me. The catalyst was you know if i jump in if jump ship so to speak and start the semi on the worst thing that can possibly happen is you know. I can't hack it. And i go get a job somewhere. I could be a great senior project manager site superintendent project executive. I work for startup space. Those were my options. Were like well. If i if i fail at this i just go get a job. Like that was my. That was mike. Mike and i'll be still in the same position i am now. Just maybe at a way better firm with more happening. So

Walmart's Commitment to Hiring Veterans

"The right skills obviously is one of the core values that you have there. And the company is a foundational member of a new vet tech employer consortium. That's going to be helping. Provide training for high tech skills for careers in technology for veterans. Tell me about that program. How did it come about in. Who can access it. Well all answer it by by stepping back just a little bit and talking about things from a workforce development and labour market could perspective and even before that when walmart entered into lower the last five years we entered into this period where we really needed to integrate bland. The worlds of in store experience and an online experience for customers and through those efforts in kobe really highlighted the need and importance of us to be able to provide this omni channel or omni experienced for people. That's just a seamless. Shopping experience between the online and the in person domains. And what that has entailed is that we have any number of roles as part of this this leap into digital in leaning into digital where we have product developers and project managers and user experience individuals data scientists obviously the software developers and engineers in the cybersecurity information security individuals and it creates created. This huge demand going back to that workforce prominent so we needed to figure out how we considered our demand. What was the supply opportunities that were out there in. How do we build an opportunity to connect the two and this tech program that was established by the veterans administration or funded by the veterans administration and in partners with the us chamber of commerce accenture and others. We recognize the importance of it right away and so what it does is it helps take military service members. It gives them certain skills like cloud architecture or any number of other areas and with through those skills makes them exactly what we're looking for and we can bring people in who have those foundational skills and then continued to develop them into the people that were looking to grow over time. So we're super excited about that program itself that just one example within the employment heller that we're very interested in it. Aligned with our workforce demand and lets us tap into the veteran talent pipeline in a way that is that skill bridging activity in puts all that together in a really interesting and fun public private partnership example a model that we hope to see happen. Not just in the technologies but other areas over time how veteran access program through the va. It's just a simple google to the vet tech program. B. e. t. t. e. c. And the us chamber of commerce or the veterans administration. You can follow the path to that father clicks to that and check it out and we hope to see you through the program.

Caleb Barlow Discusses Healthcare Industry Ransomware Attacks and Measures to Prevent Cybercrimes

"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host David Intra Cosso. This podcast discussed cybercrime or ransomware attacks against hospitals and other healthcare providers with Collab- Barlow CEO Synergistic Tech this barlow welcome to the program. Hey pleasure to be here. David. Mr Biles vile is, of course, posted on the podcast website. On background computer or cybercrimes against healthcare providers, more of a hospitals, disabled computer networks holding them for ransom. Frequently for Bitcoin fee, the tax have been prevalent since at least two, thousand and ten. This past month however, universal health services with over four hundred locations. Over in the US suffered a cyber attack disabling it's company wide computer network causing some it's hospitals to revert to pen and paper recordkeeping also last month the first known death. Resulted from a ransomware attack in Germany when a patient did not survive transferred to another hospital. Though a twenty nineteen hhs report found between twenty, twelve and sixteen. Hospital deaths increased after ransomware attacks. Earlier this month covid nineteen VACs. A covid nineteen vaccine trial was delayed by more attack or at least one. Likely. The most costly ransomware attack was to the UK's national health service in seventeen that amounted to an estimated one, hundred, twenty, million in it costs and lost productivity. ransomware attacks are on the increase especially amongst small hospitals, particularly vulnerable to phishing attacks, lasting upwards of tumor weeks because of their lean or inadequate security support. As Josephine Wolf noted in October Seventeen New York Times editorial quote Unquote cybersecurity shortcomings in the healthcare sector needs to be addressed now. More than ever when medical care is increasingly being offered via remote online formats. In twenty twenty states introduced more than two hundred and eighty cybersecurity related bills enacting several related to task forces or commissions training. Cybersecurity insurance in criminal. Penalties. The US Senate and House passed seven cybersecurity bills whoever not specifically addressed the healthcare industry and none became law. With me again and discuss healthcare cybersecurity is synergise texts, CEO. COLLAB- Barlow so club with that. As background LET'S START WITH A. Primer Info. I've read these ransomware products. in part are. Titled or named Wannacry Laki Win Plock encrypt locker. Are some these known ransomware product. So my question is, how do these encrypt clinical data and to what effect? So. So basically, what happening if you look at ransomware incident is a you know a narrow will gets access to a network and that could be as simple as grabbing somebody's credentials. You know maybe you were on a retail site, use the same credentials you used at work that retail site was compromised and There are many locations on the dark web that will. Sell compromised credentials or could have been through a phishing attack once the bad guy is into the network then there's two primary things that they're looking to do first is to move laterally. They WANNA get as much access across the networks they can, and there are a variety of tools that they'll deploy. They will actually help them harvest additional credentials once they've got a beachhead. On, the network in addition to harvesting new credentials and kind of moving lateral or what we call lateral movement. The other thing that are going to do is to try to elevate their privilege. So going from maybe an administrator or you know a nurse and triage and maybe getting access to their credentials, they're going to try to work their way up to a network. Administrator or someone that controls access to the whole domain once they've been able to get in and move their tentacles around the organization, then they're going to deploy their payroll, which is one of several of the tools that you mentioned will allow them to then lock things up effectively what these tools, our cryptographic tools, and they basically take the entire hard drive at the device. Scramble it and lock it up with a cryptographic key. What we've seen of late is the bad guys oftentimes insert a new step just before scrambling data, locking it all up in that the exfiltrated lot of it, and they're using that to increase their chances of getting paid by potentially threatening to. The organization by releasing that data if they don't pay ransom. Okay. Thank you so. I in my reading. It's uncertain Saul. Asked you this question? What's your understanding? How frequently? Is this occurring in the healthcare sector? Oh, it's every day I mean literally every single day because you got to remember what you read about in the news is only a very small fraction of what's actually going on even though technically speaking ransomware incident is as far as I'm concerned reportable incident because you gotta remember if the bad guy had enough access to walk up your data, they had the same level of access needed to read the data and they actually in many cases had the same level access needed to change the data. So the problem is you've actually lost control of that system when you've had a ransomware incident. I. So that was that was a question I did have. Other than. Possibly, making this data public and you know healthcare data's is is is confidential proprietary, of course. What do they typically do this data other than hold it hostage? Well remember, this is a organized crime. It is a volume organization you're dealing with a human on the other end and that human is organized right. You're not the only target, their targeting dozens of organizations at the same time in many cases are teams of thirty individuals and you know there's a breakdown on that team there's a project manager of a boss. There's people that are responsible for getting access. There's people that are responsible for moving laterally people responsible for elevating credentials and people are responsible for negotiating. Once walked up system

"Like, I gotta figure out this online business thing. I I want to be location independent. I need to I want to make money through the internet. I have this thing for the tech. I get it. I started to realize I can be a good marketer and sales professional I was like, but I need to learn inside of another tech company. So I became a project manager inside of an agency and started dealing with these the expert industry as we know it today and that was who did online courses and like in in yoga or business training and things like that and and as long, Doing that I start my own freelancing business on the side where like all right. I'm going to get my own clients. And then and then when I started over selling what I could deliver I needed to start hiring developers real designers and what when you do in project management, what type of work were you doing? Website so training base membership sites. And sometimes it was built what you actually getting them built. Yeah. See, this is a beauty of Wordpress is somebody like me can come down and be all right. I'll get a membership plug in an e-commerce plug-in. I can start putting this up together. And once I got myself in trouble then I'd call go to Odessa Car up work or wherever and find out a developer to help me get unstuck or actually deliver what the client wanted and that was like the early days of me figuring out like my place in WordPress and not Designer. I'm not adding on the business guy. It took me a while to figure that out. It and so once you understand how to get a customer and you know, what the customer wants it's fairly easy to either do it yourself using the plugins that be familiar with or find somebody else who can make it happen in my right totally.

Interview with Chris Ford

"Welcome to hallway Jets. I'm Liam Dempsey. I'm Cara Clay's today. We're joined by Chris Ford Chris spent the first twenty years of her career working as an agency and freelance designer five years ago. She took a hard left and to project management team is a hybrid project manager and designer at reactive a WordPress VIP partner. Hi Chris. I'm so glad to hear welcome. Thanks for having me. I'm really glad to be here. Mm. I have missed interactions with the WordPress Community. I think tank fair to say that we all have Chris Chris. What a pleasure to meet you. Can you tell us a little bit more about yourself off? My name's Chris Borg. I started working on the web in Nineteen Ninety Six when I graduated from design school. I was supposed to be a T-shirt designer at a skateboard company and then their web guy quit and suddenly I was the new one person on staff fortunately. There were like five tags so there wasn't a whole lot to learn at the moment. We were very excited when animated gifs and background images came out for a little bit of context. I did that with the agencies in every industry from like skateboarding described booking at agencies and as a freelance writer and then five years ago, like I said, I took a really hard left into project management because I was interested in more kind of the business end of things. Like, how do you run a profitable project? How he managed timelines, how do you manage budgets which is something I always struggled with as a freelancer. And now I have just recently within the last couple of months started dipping my toe back into the design Pond relearning everything because it's been five years, which means nothing is the same Everything Has Changed. I started in WordPress. I don't even know how long it go but it was before Studio press was Studio project. I had been working as a professional scrapbooker which he says an actual job and the industry. It's the craft industry is like the tech industry. There are bubbles in different crafts and then those bubbles burst. And so when the scrapbooking Bubble Burst, I knew a bunch of people with photography. Skills he needed websites. So I got me a copy of the Kubrick theme and added flash headers with navigation to him and stole my WordPress Journey. Wow. I am so many things I want to ask you about I do too. I totally do. Can we start on scrapbooking, please, please please. Yes, I did a little scrap booking not professionally and now, you know with digital photos, whoever I mean what may have do people still do it? I mean I assume people still do but it seems like a a something that Is not a thing anymore because nobody prints out there photos. I actually I got into it because I started as a print designer and I'd love to paper and I am working it is miserable job where every day I wouldn't go in and recreate Rain Bird sprinkler timers and Flash like my whole job was to show you how like the dial spins phone numbers flashed and then you push this button and it was miserable and horrible and there was a scrap booking store down the street. So I would go and buy papers and things change and usually I just hoard crafting supplies cuz they're pretty but I actually used fees and digital scrapbooking was just taking off and that's kind of how I got notified because I do a lot of like retouching and like Photoshop was my thing. And so I got to know enough people who knew that about me that Wednesday, Digital scrapbooking started getting more popular. I got more people calling me saying hey leading someone to write an article. I was the art director for digital scrapbooking magazine and wait a second cuz I think scrapbooking and I think paper. So what is digital scrapbooking? It was basically you would go in and it off when skeuomorphic design was really big so I could like make things look realistic. So you would go in and you know make something that looked like a rib shack and put it on a page or design your own pattern backgrounds that look like paper I would do a lot where I would design my own stuff and then print it out on a printer and make kind of hybrid page. Just whip it so the Andrews to still pay and yeah. Oh, that's a really yeah. Well, no wonder you did it professionally that sounds amazing for a print em out and log. Yeah, it was super fun. Like I had a Michaels in my closet people would just send me stuff because you would get published in magazines. Like it was a really really good fun mystery years until the money ran out where I basically just kind of got paid to paint things and I don't know if anyone knows who clotting home but she's this really amazing collage artist who does like acrylic image transfers and packing tape transfers and it was you basically got page to make crafts which was kind of the coolest thing in the world, but I had a you know, I had bills to pay so I couldn't like walk it was a really competitive thing. Right and a lot of the people who were involved in it. It was their second job their husband was working. They weren't really in it for the money and I'm like dude. This is my full-time job. Like I need to get paid and I need to get paid on

"They're good to go if it doesn't happen and they don't know how to get a hold of somebody or they can't get them on their cell or the channels are blocked or whatever. That's not a good day to discipline to me on the project management side, and it could still be on a plane sheepdog. But for project managers is are you is a project manager able to keep meetings on track or redirect them if the discussion heads down a rabbit hole, right? So that happens we could have an agenda all day long somewhat. Hey I just want to talk about this one thing and then boom you're off in the other direction to me a good test of this is can you with a thirty-minute meeting accomplish what has typically taken sixty minutes, right? Yep. That's an efficiency thing. I remember words on a staff ride and Gettysburg with some of my teammates and what kind of the the dream team playing other folks who experienced we gelled together and it was like Hey, man, we all had to go through this exercise of our operational. Briefing, right? And so it's how you get 12 minutes or less. What's the challenge and loser buys the beers? I think some of us did it. I think I may have missed it by a few seconds. So I bought around Thursday, but that's a great. That's a great test. Right? How can you deliver the information succinctly allow some conversation around it and then get everybody out of the meeting because again if it's a weekly sync back 30 minutes is plenty cuz you should just be checking in for anything that's just happened. It shouldn't be the time you're working out all the problems that should happen at Hawk and in between and just direct so think about that. Can I do in 30 minutes what typically takes t Also when it comes to Charters, they're pretty high level there early, right?.

"As we as we worked as in the second one a truth and as they say in this resource learn religion.com or learning. Yeah, learn religions., sorry spiritual an actual truth. And so it's in management teams. It behooves us to know. What is the ground truth out. There. Are we stopping the flow of water from the flood or are we not and there's no getting around it. Right? Don't sugarcoat how well we're not doing did we miss something in the planning meeting? Just something come up later we go. Oh man, I forgot about this. Okay, let's Circle back or do we brush it under the rug which we should never do. We should really be having those unfiltered right non political truths that help us. Keep going forward and make good decisions. Keep our people in the field safe. That's that's a truth that we have to you know, make safer and more efficient Asians as a project manager Sim related to you know, something in the planning, maybe did we miss a step in the planning process? Did we identify how we're going to hand this project off for support early enough. Did we wait so long? Why is our project in the yellow or in the red as they say be honest about it? Right not they them no one told me I asked for this right? What could you have done as a project manager? What can your team? Why are you here be honest with it? Ask for the help you need and make sure there's a clear path of how you get back to that green that good to go status because that's the only way that's going to help us through your truth as a project manager approve a project team to get forward the third aspect. The third value here Viking value is honor, right Deeds words and reputation outlive our bodies. They say in the Viking World from some of its instant manager. Why is this is similar to kind of that truth, you know be honorable to know that when we mess up we own it. We accept it and we make it right right the example..

"It's it's really you need to take time. If you're moving factors, if you want to move sectors positions Etc particularly in the project management and think about list out what you do now or what you've done with your various positions or projects or special events. You've been part of life and then look at the p.m. I kind of kind phases and you could look at the the process group table. So if you don't know what that is and you want to get into project management Google p.m. I can process group table you get this whole table of kind of things and do a little more you gotta put a little into it, right? There's no magic credential that's going to get into project management to do well and again, there's a difference and you got to put the Research In Motion. So this last one is again. I was not in charge. I was a documentation unit leader, right so very administrative. So if you do very administrative work, this is a great translation example, so this was for the vice president job. It'll be in 2016 at Longwood College, which was pretty awesome. And again the documentation unit leader. So what that is for all hazards management is a lot of it is what sounds like. I'm sure the final it's an action plan or project management plan was ready. If there were edits. I made them, you know pen and ink on the day. We already printed just like a project plan as soon as you get it, know, electronically you can change it a little bit and then pull up the file system. Keep people's documents basically make kind of illegal record that we kept with them. So here's how I said, you know, I project manager was part of that for that event. So I said work as the document teaching unit leader within the planning section parentheses. Pmo project management office equivalent, right again, a mapping what I did in my world to how that goes in the project management world and there are direct correlations like nobody's business. So the planning section is the project management office for the incident management team, right? That's a pretty succinct statement and it maintained accurate complete and up-to-date incident off. All right. So administratively I did these things. So as a project manager you do a ton of administrative work right you do Microsoft Project schedules meeting notes project ports set up meetings and Outlook or whatever email thing. So you do tons of administrative stuff and keep files so show that you know how to do that. I assisted in the compilation reproduction and distribution office incident Action Plan parentheses equivalent to the Charter and project management plan again, I'm going to tell you what this means if you don't know so if you're putting together your project work summary for your PMI application for your PMP or you just putting together a list of what have I done that equates to project management right then do that and that's very helpful do that. I followed and here's something we've moved recently. I followed the primary alternate contingency and emergency or Pace planning model and creating contingency plans with focus on 17 different natural or man-made response scenario wage. Pay Sprint actually recovered a little bit ago, but this has to do with the contingency planning and we've covered that here. We met we took basically whole planning sessions where we focus is focused on contingency plans. What if a car crash the course what if there was a storm or you know, all these different scenarios natural man-made and then put them into a check list. So because I had experience in that I also worked on that with the folks that were were Longwood and home those together but largely, you know what I'm saying here and what you could say if you have a strong administrative background as look I know how to maintain records. I know how to prepare or participate in the preparation of plans these big project management plans, and I know how to plan for what what we think we're going to do our backup plans and be part of that and look at different scenarios and help get a German what we do. So I hope what you all do is continue to listen to the show to reach out to me people process progress at gmail.com. Stop by people process progress.com. All my contacts are there there's past episodes. I need to put some new episodes up there or their more recent ones and feel free to reach out me. Like I mentioned email address and all my contacts are on their social media wage and I hope that if you're out there looking for something new if you just want to change really give yourself credit for the work that you've done you can map being a stay-at-home mom or dad. You can map being a plumber that schedules their own projects. You can map public safety stuff anything maps to project management because essentially off work we do as a project right it starts with an idea. That we do or don't want to do or we do or don't get approved. We have to figure out how fund it how they get the stuff to do it with where we're going to do it what the schedule is. How often how fast we can do what how slow do we have the staff to do it? Is it a one man or woman job? Then we are going to start working on it or executing it. We're going to see how we're doing. We're going to get feedback from our customer from ourselves. If we're building a treehouse from our spouse if we're screwing it up down at some point it's going to end and we're going close it and it really is that simple all the wrenches that get thrown in all the quirks. All the challenges are from us or others or a pandemic or you know outside influences, but you can really look at a project that simply right. You can really break it out that way and then plug in the tools you use so again gave self credit. Look at what you do. If you're interested in project management, you gotta put some time in and learn about project management and then you have to be able to actually do what you say. You're going to do what you say you've done right? So but it's just exercise to do a highly recommend it whether you're going to go down the road of credentialing or not. If you want to break into the project management field, you gotta see the skills that you you think have or you know have and you've gotta show those cuz you can also use This list that you're going to make these equivalent lists for job applications for when you reach out to someone talk them and say hey, what's this like, so again, feel free to reach out me people progress process progress.com. I thank you so much for listening for all the support again big milestone. We hit over 10,000 downloads or the past week. That was my original Milestone when I started podcasting and you all have made that happen, and I'm so appreciative of it. So until we meet again and podcasts Lan, please stay safe. Please certainly wash your hands and God speed to you all..

"People. So a super high priority as I've said here on the podcast before accountability is number one to make sure we know where people are that. They're safe. I had fantastic. People on the team which is we know as why teams work, right, even though there's a you know, Jocko and life in extreme ownership. No bad teams only bad leaders, and that's true. And this is what this is exam listened earlier podcasts where I talk about I did mess up and I didn't give enough supervision to help optimize the way we were doing some throughput so great lesson for me, right? So my summer here from this was I worked as the resource unit leader within a multidisciplinary organizational structure that consisted of local regional state and federal Partners, right? So think about that from a standpoint of what in the industry I was in public safety then I was telling you ask Captain but working in its management, but that to me is a project manager says Hey, I was whatever this position is, which I don't you know, I say, don't know as a project manager without the background I have but I know worked in a multidisciplinary organizational structure that was made up of local regional state and federal Partners, right? So I know that was X Levels of people multiple organizations and logos if you will write working together and I was within it right so I wasn't it the lead. I provided planning through creation of a new process to change First Responders. So I help kind of optimize how we do that. We gave them GPS and we track them and it was all that so I say, hey, I help make this new process and put it together. I executed through assignment a specific unit designations with functional managers provided accountability for over seven thousand people over nine days, and I closed it by the mobilizing all the responders safely. Right? So again, we're walking the reader the through our experience that isn't day-to-day it health care business banking project management experience, but just in that statement from your Public Safety, you're all hazards or public health experience.

Instead, a zero G toilet relies on fans and vacuums to pull material away from the astronauts and preferably from the rest of the crew to Williams says solids are directed into bags or been for disposal.

Liquid waste astronauts use a hose with a funnel attached to it well, that poses a challenge when female astronauts need to use the toilet for both functions, McKinley says. Due to the differences in male and female anatomy, women have issues aligning the urine collection funnel while also using the solid waste portion of the toilet. A new NASA designed better accommodates the female anatomy, which is important as more women. Astronauts travel to space. Well, it's that time retired astronaut Nicole Stott spent more than 100 days in orbit. I really like that they're going on with this way, because I think there's just in general, you know, understanding that there have been some challenges with. You know the toilets with their current design, but also that it says, Hey, we acknowledge that this demographic is part of the astronaut corps. Now it's kind of sad. The toilet to do that, right? NASA's issues with equipment for women is no secret. A historic all female spacewalk was delayed last year when the agency didn't have the correct sized space suits. NASA will take the toilet design changes and apply them to the development of other new tack like spacesuits to focus on anatomical differences. I think it's telling that that's just becoming As part of the initial design for what we want to do, and you know if we go further and further from a planet that would want to consider all of our crew mates in the way we design things, If all goes as planned. The new toilet will be installed later this month, and NASA is asking the astronauts to give it all they've got to stress test the system. For NPR News. I'm Brendan Byrne in Orlando.

NASA To Send A New Toilet To International Space Station

"Space station can be challenging. Even simple tasks here on Earth are much more difficult in orbit like going to the bathroom. But that's about to get a little easier, especially for the growing number of women. Astronauts from member station W. M. Fi, Brendan Byrne reports. NASA is sending a new toilet to the SS.

"project manager" Discussed on Between the Slides

"But how is the team doing especially these days we need to check on each other and see how everyone's doing who's totally stressed out. I know I'm feeling the stress. I'm sure a lot of you are dog. Well, so let's check on each other. Not just you know, what a smile and well it's another day. That's a sign right. So let's keep doing that. Number two is the business owner. So to me that's kind of our public. She has you say for the project teams. Those are the folks that we're doing the project for to improve a process put a new product in place device that cetera the cops stuff equivalent to me and number three, especially in the it field is a confirmation security. They're going to proactively keep us safe, you know from intrusion on our networks or systems. They're going to advise us on the best way to set up accounts all those kinds of things. So little folks took the IT project manager, but you could apply that you know, what's an equivalent of a security type force or structure the fourth form equivalent to the fire stuff is our QA and testing. So these are the folks that are going to get snow. What's hazardous in the way. We designed a system or workflow. They're going to test it out for us. Help us break it help us fix it those kind of things Public Works and utilities equivalent to me in the information technology. Your project world is our networking folks are our platform services or servers folks the folks that do Hardware power those kind of things right without them. We can't send data internally or externally we can't host data just a huge Factor run systems folks can't work. They don't have their Hardware or power. Obviously, that's kind of a big one and a pretty direct equivalent. I think to the number six categories of problems or issues or anything that lower-middle Miller talks about from the agency administrator standpoint on the incident command side on the project side is your sponsors in your steering committee, right? So there's going to be guidance or there is guidance from the organization and from them that something is going to come up or be related to at some point in the project having to walk through some of those categories. Let's get specific with some of these objectives. And again as Larry said I've said this is your system make it work for you. There's no cookie-cutter solution to this and all the other guides are just that their guides to give you information. Your experience will do that and then you can sure those up so exact Of an object an objective that has to do with the responders is provide for the safety Health welfare and security of responders. I've seen that probably almost word-for-word on many incident Action plans for a project. It could be we're going to form multi-discipline team to perform the duties of this project throughout the project lifecycle wasn't like that right super basic but it focuses on our people and instead of safety off, you know, we could almost do the same thing in a project aspect right provide for the safety Health and Welfare. If you're doing a construction project that's pretty relevant to a project first thing we should do is make sure everybody's safe on site right that's off that I think makes total sense. Then we look at similar for kind of a second example for the public-facing very similar right provide for the same kind of stuff safety Health welfare for them..

"project manager" Discussed on People, Process, Progress

"In this episode, we're going to talk about how whether you're an incident commander planning section chief operations section chief or on the project side, your sponsor, a project manager. How can we look at our processes as we like to do here, simplify them tease out what we need and just talk through this concept. This post concept from the National Incident Management System, which is the guide, right? It's not a prescribed thing, but it's the guide that contains the incident command system and other information that when I was an incident management team or doing public health emergency coordination or or response for the state. And then even healthcare and some of the concepts of is project managers that we've talked about here. It is the kind of guy, the national incident management system than that encompasses all those kind of things. It's Kinda like the project management body of knowledge. But for Incident Command System Public Safety Public Health, folks that do that kind of response. So. I'm going to go through each of the letters in the acronym posts we'll talk about first the priority and we'll talk about I the incident management public safety aspect with some guidance from Larry and some of my two cents, and then the project management aspect because this document from Larry, which is outstanding, right it's a way to have some objectives ready to go. Because that's quite a challenge for people right whether you're an experience that commander or a new one is said these objectives that set the tone for the whole team for the whole operation or for a project? Right. If I'm a PM or sponsor, you know according to the book, the sponsor supposed to make the objectives but. And those kind of thing. So how do we do that? So leary's guidance. Guidance. He just reiterates in this document but if you've been in public safety ever and you've been exposed to that the incident command system, it's life safety. Incident Stabilization and property conservation. Right. So the first thing we need to do for priorities is save lives whether it stop a bad guy that shooting people stop the bleeding from a person whatever it is we're focused on life safety, get put the fire out those kind of things. Incident stabilization stopped the fire spread, stop the the bleeding against kind of a ws there but basically make the make the incident or their response or even the. Event if you're using this for that, not get worse and then property conservation and environment. Right is a big thing is we don't WanNa bus up someone's whole house and overhaul, which is where we make sure that the fire hasn't spread after a fire. If we only have it contained in the kitchen and it's not in the living room, we're not going to bust out walls at random places. So those kinds of things and for a Project, similarly, there's there's kind of these big three and then the extra extra fourth one. So there is scope right? What is within the boundaries of what we're doing for this project so priority, wise for project. What's the scope What's the schedule right? We got to have some kind of schedule whether you're doing a waterfall this then that whether you're agile kind of doing sprints a week or two time, how are you going to do? That and then the cost right money because nobody has endless amounts of it most nobody there's some folks that seemed like they do these days and then an additional one is quality, right? So we can have no scope creep we can be on schedule we can be under budget or quality can be super poor. So the priority of the project should include quality, and so we'll get into kind of some of those how that works but. You know pretty good correlation different focus, right between public safety incident management focus on that life safety on that response stabilizing things not letting them get worse on conserving property but you're doing similar work like that in a project. So you may not be directly you know putting pressure on a wound. Literal blood coming from somebody but you could be putting a virtual dressing. That is stopping loss of productivity through improving process as a project. Right. So there's some some correlation there. So let's look at the objectives we've we've talked about objectives. If you're in project management, you've been an incident management objectives are a critical part of it. I'm a huge fan of them on the foundation of four, the first step, and that is to develop smart objectives. Same exact thing for the public safety model so that Oh, and post is objective. Of course, they should be smart and we get some great guidance from Larry here too because he says. From his experience in what he's seen with some exceptions is states there's about six categories that all hazards, incidents, problems, issues, limitations with a few exceptions could fall into, and so those are and these will lead into development or help us develop objectives. These are responders, right taking care of our people. So that is always the number one priority is our responders. The next priority number two is the public. So we're keeping our people safe. We're looking out for the public that's who were here for to respond in the incident command us some public safety, and then there is cop stuff right civil or get the bad guys. Those kind of things number four then there's fire stuff to removing hazards. Has Cereal hazardous environments, those kind of things keeping a safe from that number five public works stuff. So infrastructure utilities, those kind of public works, public utilities, and then there are number six, the agency administrator stakeholder political issues. So there's overarching things we're going to have fiscal responsibility throughout the operational period, those kind of things. So from Larry Miller. Responders the public cop stuff, fire stuff, public works, public utility stuff, and those leadership..

Job hunting tips for cybersecurity professionals

"I WANNA jump from you know your your career to sort of general talk of career because obviously we have you know a career. Person Who's WHO's WHO's on podcast is is giving you know cybersecurity career advice and so forth. So I WANNA start with the big question that's you know keeps coming up on every podcast I'm sure you've asked head asked before but what are your thoughts on these so called cybersecurity skills gap or shortage? The is a conundrum. So like I said, I have degree not gonna mix I. Really Big. It's fine the bigger and I'm sitting gone it. If you really have cyber security skill gap, why is it so difficult at times higher somebody. So the first thing that I would ask is this, what is your definition of a cybersecurity professional when you're talking about a skills gap? If I have a seller who was selling services better cybersecurity special what about a project manager? Who is an IT project manager who is now working for a project that I'm dealing with installing June radar our sin at is that a savage professional or we talk about people that I like to say her keyboard eaters somebody doing the volmer ability scan. So staring eyes on glass or so that is doing pen testing or read. Those cyberspace? We need to figure it out and I recently saw a threat on leap. Dan. In a guy made really like point he goes, Hey, listen for short three million jobs one percent of the population of the United States and statistically speaking Nelson probably a hundred and fifty million professionals. So really. Two percent of the population are GONNA be in information security. Short much I really buy. So for same statistics everywhere that are just lies down licenses except I do not believe we have skills gap of three million people in cybersecurity with that. said I absolutely believe we have a skills gap. In what I consider the true cybersecurity keyboard beater the vulnerability near here. The is on last the ship somebody's comedy from Asia in hitting my system they should and then I have to escalate it threat hunting astronaut. Yeah I, think we need to understand what are we talking about wit cybersecurity nationals, but there is a gap in certain areas. Yeah and you know I think that's one of the things that we've discussed also that I've learned just by doing this podcast is that there's the cyber security is such a vast range of job types, job opportunities, and especially skills and backgrounds. You know there's so many jobs that we've talked about like risk assessment or. You know you know threat modeling or things like that. That don't need any real keyboard beating experience necessarily if your problems oliver if you can you know explain things to the client. Well, if you're good writer like you're you can get into the industry and so I think maybe there's also a perceptual issue people say, well, at loved jump over to cybersecurity but I don't I don't know how to do all that computer stuff but there's there's so many jobs that are not don't have anything to do with that aspect of it. I I had a lady reach out to me She's in Canada. She is an accountant auditor and she wants to get over to cyber. My wife actually does cyber security is well, she's on the compliance side and so interesting dinnertime compensation about her day were, and I told this this Canadian lady, it's easy topping over it's like if you were to fixing. Will work for Toyota. An audit is you know what compliance is. Now about ISO twenty, seven, O one in. Our region is yeah, right. So. Don't think it is great Great Point. Christopher audience don't think because you're doing something today that it doesn't correlate to Cyber Security Rahm. Yeah I had a a guy out here yesterday detailing my car is really nice. Very personable acid one you can get cybersecurity he likes meat while he's good with hands you know inspected lacking I need to know a little bit more about it, but I can certainly find places for him to go help work in the help desk. A great place to start because you see everything find out what's what's your favorite candy and the Columbus Door

Contractor vs. Employee, What's The Difference

"We begin with Zach Zach with the show. How can I serve you today Sir Hi Josh thanks so much for taking my call Before you started in my question, I'll just give you a brief background on my situation So I work as a as a project manager and for the last couple of years, I've been contracting through a contract firm So I was laid off a couple of months ago obviously to the coronavirus but luckily, I was able to land a new position yesterday. In the process of searching for jobs, I. Several shooters. But one recruiter I brought up the option of receiving my income through my own. LLC. So the way I the way I see it. Essentially, my options would be to work as a W. Two employees. So where I would get an hourly rate from the contract firm I could get paid through the LLC So. L LLC would be the employer who hires me would be paying me through that firm at contract firm. this option would pay as I. Understand it about three to ten dollars an hour This is an hourly rate. So and then the last option, which is something I've been wanting to do but I want to hear your thoughts on this is you kind of cut out that middleman completely stand up my own LLC and maybe pay like a finders fee to a recruiting company. So I'm just hoping you could discuss some of the pros and cons of these options and Let me don't you think It's a good question. The first thing to begin with that you have to start with is, are you a contractor or are you an employee? This is an area where the IRS has started to become much tighter in recent years and it's an area that's under dispute I. Guess Most famously when California recently passed new legislation affecting contractors and making it even harder to be a crunch actor in that state where you saw. Uber and the various ridesharing services and affected by that where they're trying to classify the contractors as employees, and that is leading to major problems. But the IRS regulations on the subject are fairly clear, and if you'll begin with those those regulations, then you'll get an idea of which path is best to go. So if I just use these words without actually defining them if I just simply use these words of employee and contractor, are you an employee or are you a contractor? So that that's the thing I could be. I well Dr Yeah whether I get paid to it w two I'm still contracting. Contract firm respect me up with the employer that that needs the work done. Okay. So in this situation, the company hiring company is going to hire a contract firm and either you will be an employee of that contract form firm or the employing company will hire own contracting firm. I I believe. So I, think what you're saying that second part is they would be I would have my own LLC and then A little confusing. But like that the contract I kinda the Middle Man. So regardless of buying paid through W. Two or paid through like ten ninety, nine, independent contractor it would go through the contract farm. So in your situation. In your situation, this may work out fine for you to do be deciding this. But in my experience answering this question much of the time when I'm asked this question, the answer is simple. You simply go and ask what is the IRS say about whether you're a contractor or an employee, and let's follow that and I'm going to give you how the irs defines that and then move onto answering your specific question. But the IRS uses three distinct categories to create a set of facts that will lean in one direction or another in those three categories are behavioral control, financial control and the relationship between the worker and the employing company. Behavioral control a worker is an employee. When the business has the right to direct and control the work performed by the worker even if that right is not exercised and that is probably the most significant one by the way, why is this important because there are significant penalties for the hiring company if they miss classify somebody as a contractor who is actually an employee and so the biggest danger is not for you as the. Worker it's actually for the company, but if the were if the company has the right to control the work performed by the worker, then you are an employee behavioral control categories are the type of instructions given such as when and where to work what tools to use or where to purchase supplies and services receiving the types of instruction in these examples may indicate that a worker is an employee. Degree of instruction more detailed instructions may indicate that the worker is an employee less dealed instruct detailed instructions indicate less control indicating that the worker is more likely to be an independent contractor.

"Get on with another great episode of the People Process Progress podcast in three two. One. This is episode forty, five, take the purple pill and this is from or based off article I wrote a bit ago actually last year almost a year ago called take the purpose Lincoln if you haven't had a chance to connect with me, there do so but what it relates to and have had discussions recently both with mercy managers with budding project managers professionals and have mentioned it here on the on the podcast before about the difference between the project manager professional exam and being a project manager in real life, right? They're not one in the same. So for me, this came about because I'm part of professional project managers group on facebook and about a year ago, someone had posted that they pass their PMT exam. So great for them right? It shows I putting time toward professional credential. I studied I learned the formulas. I sat in the super stressful testing room with all eyes on you and and now a year later, they're doing online PMP exams, which is interesting. So someone's watching you on a camera. It's a whole thing. So it means a lot right. So getting that credentials huge. But I thought you know to me, that's not the same as the road right to the contrast of the project management body of knowledge concepts. And, their application, the world world or different, and by that mean. So the you know I'm a PMP in for me. My first thought was of the Matrix between these two differences in realities or reality and this. Conceptual and some of those concepts for sure used in the world but the conceptual project management body of knowledge or pinball or PM standards in the world. So the scene where you know in the Matrix where morpheus is giving the Oh the choice you can choose this blue pill and you'll return to life normal life with pre standards that kind of stuff kind of like the. Project Management Body of knowledge and the exam, or you can take this red pill and will open your eyes to what's happening in the real world which I think if you're new to project management in Your Avenue Your Gateway is the PMP exam. That's kind of what you're going to get. You're going to, you know take this real world project management job pill and be like wait a minute we're not using all these. T and we're not doing all these formulas all the time and the sponsor didn't come to me with the charter. What the heck that stuff that you're gonNA run into, which is fine. That's part of adjusting and being thing so. He again that Blue Pill is the project management body of knowledge. The PEP exam questions very structured little wiggle room. You GotTa really get those right get the scenario. Perfect to get the answers right with you understand the right statements and expectations whereas the red pill is find it organizations. You know what do or don't apply how they do or don't work so I think you can't have too much of either. Right the blue pills is going to leave you to unwavering and too structured. Kinda like when covert started hitting and maybe people tried to hold onto standards too much and say, no, we have to do this when you're in a time that's so fluid and so dynamic or the red pills with no structures too dangerous and counter-productive view just winging it. So combine the red and the blue pills make your own purple pill that's a blend of the concepts, the tools and techniques from the project. Management Body of knowledge, but also practical dynamic project management that fits your given environment. So very short episode here I just want folks to consider how do I blend these two things do a more expansive episode in the future. This is just a quick thought nearing the end of the week here that when you break into project management or if if you're in emergency management, which is some of the discussions we've had lately. On link dead and other places use the knowledge you get from the books to help build your practical application and then use what works in your environment plus not everybody in your environment is going to be really into project management. Right so that's another one of your jobs whether you're emergency manager. An incident manager or project manager is to help integrate people into the process into what project management is, and if you're trying to build that up from scratch, you can't hammer them with while the book says this. And we have to do this. You gotta be able to balance it just like when I was a planning section chief. If I tried to walk people through everything single step every single form, every single action of the planning process and the all hazards planning process on a dynamic incident on the scene you're gonNA fail people are GonNa look at you like you're crazy not going to be helpful. So take that purple blend the book stuff blend the Roh world stuff. Do your best stay safe wash those hands. Godspeed..

Mars Is The Place To Go This Summer

"Okay Joe Palca. We are talking missions to Mars. Let's start with the United Arab Emirates which launched its probe two weeks ago. As you said, this is the country's first mission to Mars Yup and the probe is called hope and it will arrive in twenty twenty, one and twenty twenty one is a big year for the U. E. as I'm sure you know Emily Kwong I do not Joe Palca, but you're going to tell me why, yes, I am a because it's the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the UAE which was established in nineteen seventy one. So the morality leadership was eager to do something. Something to celebrate and a mission to Mars seemed like a great idea, Joe, that is a pretty splashy birthday present. Yes. That's what I was hoping for my fiftieth birthday, but I didn't get it. But seriously, that's just one of the reasons that they were going to Mars, it's partly to celebrate, but I talked Sarah Murray the deputy project manager and science lead for the emerets Mars mission. The purpose was not only to get to Mars by twenty twenty one and have vowed scientific. Data coming out of the mission that is unique nature and no other mission has captured before. But more importantly, it was about developing the capabilities and capacity of engineers in the country. Interesting. Yeah. Sarah says that the country's leaders wanted the you A. to develop a more of a knowledge-based economy and building a Mars probe provided a focus for expanding the country's technological capabilities. Okay. So Sarah mentioned the unique nature of this mission. Joe Tell me about the probe and what it is designed to do. It's about the size of a small car in weighs about a ton and a half, and it has these solar panels that look like wings essentially an and when they're spread out, it's about twenty four feet wide and when it goes to, Mars it will go into a really unusual elliptical orbit that will take essentially over every point on Mars. Once a week, it's providing us with full understanding of the changes, the weather of, Mars. Throughout an entire Martian day and throughout all the seasons of Morris throughout an entire Martian year, which lasts roughly two earth years. Wow. So they're really trying to get a comprehensive picture of the Martian atmosphere right and it's not just over time. Here's David Brain. He's part of a team of scientists at the University of Colorado Boulder collaborating on the emerets Mars mission. The three instruments that are on the space craft will help us measure the atmosphere of Mars from the surface, all the way to space. which has really been done before with other missions and that's very cool. All right. Joe, I know that China's mission to Mars has been a bit shrouded in secrecy. Here's what we know that it's name is teen win one which means questions to heaven. But one of the most notable things about it is that it includes an orbiter, a lander Andrew Rover. So a spacecraft that orbits the planet can land on it and move across the surface. Right? Well, it's really it's got three parts. It's all pushed together for the trip there, but then they separate. The orbiter of course stays in orbit and does remote sensing of the planet, and also will serve as a radio relay station for the mission on the surface, and then they'll these two things together, Land Rover, and then the rover will drive down a ramp and explore around the landing site. So it's an interesting mission, and I think it's a little hard to say China is not obviously in the same category as. As NASA terms of look what we did look over here, look do this we you know there there are a little more circumspect about how they do their missions. But the scientists I've talked to say this is a very serious interesting probe and it puts China in a really interesting position because only one country has successfully landed and roved round on Mars. Can you guess which country that is Russia? Now it's a It's the U S. of course, Russia did actually land a probe. It's a question of whether to call it a success or not because it only sends signals back for a few seconds. So technical success, I guess but not a very interesting mission.

"project manager" Discussed on Between the Slides

"You want to incorporate their ideas particular project manager. That's not a good thing at all so I don't subscribe to that piece, but again part of these definitions are kind of a pure. You tested this. Here's what that equals. oftentimes you've had that and certainly either tons in my life where I was too bullheaded. And I've learned from it. Now particularly the project manager, the certainly not the subject matter expert in everything, or or you know a lot of things you just can't think you're the only one that can make the decisions, and sometimes that involves. Can you know uncomfortable decisions with other folks? But that's again part of being a project manager. Right another part of the statements. Are. Part of the self assured statement or or definition and outline is that quote, but you alone have the authority to to form conclusions, make decisions and act. For project managers. Obviously you know to me the first thing I thought of was that quote from. A statement from the movie top gun negative ghostwriter. The pattern is full when you want to buzz the tower. I could just wrong right so. It was a selfish PM. It does come with decision making authority sometimes, but I think we are not the one that can or should actor decide alone right? We get information and guidance from all our subject matter, experts, technical experts, leadership, and so all that's formulated for us to put together and queue up in big decisions now. Does that mean if you're at a critical go? No, Go, you know you have authorization from leadership. You know you have the right information. And maybe your team has pause and. And waiting for that assurance, and you say what I'll take the heat. Let's go absolutely, but when the statements when there's like always, are you alone? I? Think some of the self assured is is just too over the top, and so that's one thing I would caution with, and that's part of the assessment to is. Hey, you may have this trait, but be aware of this kind of thing, and so for me. Definitely don't as a PM make decisions on your own as as standard right. So, that's Kinda the precursor that is in the section about self-assurance in the book, and then I mentioned these ten actions for you know they recommend so if you're if you're assessed, it's over short in every every one of the strengths does this, but if you're assessed, what this hero, ten actions that you should take, and so what I'm GonNa. Do is talk about the official. Official, Clifton Action and then we'll give you my two cents on what I think or my interpretation on how project managers could interpret that and maybe put that into action, so the first first Clifton Strength Action for self-assured folks is here's the official thing quote. Look for startup situations for which no rule book exists. You will be your best when you're asked to make decisions end quote. Very good right, be ready for that for me. As a PM I think this could be look for and find comfort in situations where you can guide yourself and your project team through uncharted waters right so as a project manager. You don't be afraid of the project. You haven't done before certainly with Kobe Nineteen Gosh. We've all pivoted like crazy right. Hey, we're GONNA. Have you held this department? You'RE GONNA. have to think fast. You're going to have to change. That just develops better and I think you. Startup situations, no world book making the decisions. If you're self-assured, you're comfortable there. If you're newer in the profession that this will come experience, but even if you're brand new, just either got your PMP. Which again is the Syrup? But you getting officially kind of into the business? Be Confident in yourself, right? You're there to do good admit you don't know everything, but be comfortable in these situations whether it's no rulebook. Strength, number, two or action to just for self-assured folks, and I suggest is a little bit. PM's is to seek roles in which you convince people to see your point of view, so this is again where it gets into your so self assured you want to drive people a certain direction for me as a project manager for the second action, I would really think that for my statement. It's to seek leadership roles where your confidence can help. Help your team and other succeed right so you're still looking for roles, but not to convince other people to say hey, you need to switch to my point of view. You're saying hey. I am happy to lead that team I'm happy to lead this organization, or whatever, but I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA. Lift you all up. I'm going to help the team right because that's that's what we do. We facilitate processing. We support the team. IS PROJECT MANAGERS? self-assurance Clifton Action Clinton's strength action three. Let yourself confident show. It can be contagious and will help the people around you grow. Honestly for this one from from my action, three for project managers interpreted same as the second one right why? Why make a different I think if you're seeking leadership roles if your confidence is high if you're helping others succeed. then. You're letting yourself confident. Show in some of this has shown an example that I've done or seen other folks. Is You have what's called? Command presence, you know head up shoulders back WANNA Jordan. Tenants for life and It's just a good thing to do. It displays I'm confident without being arrogant or cocky, and it builds other people right if you're if you're looking down if you're there on your phone all the time, or you're just really not engage the tempo of the team, even over video web cameras now through zoom or Skype, or whatever people can tell, so sit up straight, be engaged. Be Confident. Jump in, and you know lead. There seems like all of you out. There are already. So let's go through Clifton Strength Action and before quote, realize that sometimes you will find it hard to put your certainty in or intuition into words, possibly leading others to see you self righteous. While that's directly kind of that line between so self assured and self righteous, and and for me, though as a project manager, this action I would say maintain your confidence as a project manager, but remember the mantra, no Egos, no silos, and let your subject matter, Experts Guide the Hal of the project, right. I said No. He goes no silos on the old between slides podcast, certainly on this podcast and in life when I, taught incident, command and And and on project teams in true right so you know, make sure that you're always always out there. Showing your confidence, but you're always recognizing no egos starts with you know. Egos starts with your team, and certainly no silos and communication. That's it. That's a huge thing, so you want to avoid being seen as they say as self righteous just because you want to get your point across. That's not really going to help anybody. There I don't think. Clifton strive action number five for self assurance. Is? Your independence streak can leave you standing alone, right? There's another there's another danger. You're so self assured, and you want to do it on your own that you may leave your team behind or. Alienate yourself and that's so good, and so for me. That's the bill your project team into a coalition and again remembering back to number four no egos, no silos is a huge deal and very helpful. Clifton strength number six out of ten again. This is from the shelf assurance section in the strengths finder two point Oh. This is this is on page. One fifty seven were self-assurance is if you happen, already have the book or going to get the book. so again advised getting that also requesting you maybe subscribe to this checkout, people process, progress, dot, com, and just updated the websites. Websites, you can listen to all the episodes on the player. need to add some of the most recent episodes, but the format is there, so it should be handy again. Reach out to me at people. Process progress that Jamal Dot Com. Let's go to action number six from the book. It says partner with someone was stronger, strategic, deliberative or futuristic talents right so this is where. Clinton Strang. Say Hey of you've been assessed with self-assurance. That's awesome. You need to kind of balance that or supplement or partner what these other folks that have strategic view that.

"project manager" Discussed on Between the Slides

"Please silence your cell phones hold our sidebar conversations to a minimum, and we will get into this episode of the people. Process Progress podcasts in three two one. Everyone welcome back to the people process progress podcasts particularly to this episode forty one the Clifton strengths and importance of self-assurance for project managers. May Be, wondering what are Clifton strengths again well, they are strengths that were identified by Don Clifton. Who is a the father? It says on the book here of psychology and the inventor of the Clifton Shrinks There's thirty four of these strengths that folks can look at. There's an assessment that comes with the book. The book is called Strengths Finder two point. Oh, it's from Gallup also Tom Rath and it's called. Discover your Clifton strengths It's actually pulled it off the shelf. It's my wife's book. It's very good. It has some very realistic. Feedback in here, and the focus really is on in this book is to not just focus on areas for improvement. In fact, it's it's kind of the opposite is to assess yourself and look at what are you good at and not ignore any weaknesses or any areas that you could shore up a little bit, but build on your strengths instead of just focusing on stuff to improve and by building your strengths than you can. Can. Pull yourself up your teammates up organization up, so it's a pretty cool concept. Check it out again. Its strengths finder two point. Oh, from Gallup. It comes with an online tasks. You can also go to the website. Clifton strengths and link in the show notes and pay. I think it's like fifty bucks for an assessment. I haven't done the assessment yet, so I'll plan to do that and then I'll come back. So what I did, and I'm going to try and keep just like mentioned in episode forty. What those foundational five things to starting a podcast I'm going to give those five things for this episode Aga through with the objectives, and in particular these with each of the strengths that you are identified with and for me without taking the assessment I identified with the Self. Self Assurance at strength, so I'm pretty self assured self confident. I have had that being advantaged sometimes had that be a disadvantage. Some Times where I was overconfident, cocky or something, and I'm sure other folks out there have to so what I'm GonNa do is parallel. What Clifton strengths book mentions are good things or things to consider rather if you have these this. This trade the self-assurance, and then what can we as project managers do or adapt these because I, don't I don't see a one to one in everything here I'll explain wise. We go through but but certainly great guidance and I think self assurance as a project manager is critical. He know when you're someone that's called in to help. Bring together folks that maybe. Maybe strangers your strangers to them. You haven't met before, and now you're dealing with lots of money. Lots of people lots of stuff salaries, etc, you gotTa have some self assurance, and so hopefully through this episode we can share this experience of looking at critic. Clifton strengths and how we can kind of morph those a little bit specifically for project managers. So like we like to do with these foundational five things. Let's talk about what the why is or the mission for this episode, so it's to me thinking about it to empower current future project managers to understand that while, and this is a quote from the book from the Clifton Shrinks Book. We cannot be anything we want to be. We can be. who we already are, and so that's paraphrase from strength. Finder two point Oh page nine. And I think it's great, you know and it's true because both for America for people. A lot of times folks here or told her the ones telling you can be anything you want as long as you work hard, and that's not necessarily true right. I was never going to be in the NFL. If I had put a lot more into it or other sports or something I don't know that I had the natural ability combined with the. Here some may say wow, that's just a quarter of attitude, but I think there's a lot of reality in that quote again from page nine that you can't necessarily be anything but. You can focus on your strengths and be a lot more than you're already. Aren't GonNa Paraphrase? It's changed a little bit, but I think that's a great thing and I think that's you know something that looking at the strengths and talking through to you particularly self-assurance, which is one of the thirty four strengths in the book. For project managers is something. That's really good, so my objective episodes provide brief synopsis of the Strengths Farner two point Oh book which I kind of did a little bit, and then more so really get into it to provide listeners I end myself because I always learn something on sitting here, talking to the microphone or somebody else for sure, provide the listener with my viewpoint on being self assured, but team oriented project manager. Right in. That's where we'll get into some of the conflicts I. have with again. These are straight definitions of what a self-assured person would have their traits or not necessarily always the best way to implement it, but just kind of a personality screen. But. We'll discuss. Are these these ten ideas for action that each drink has? If that's what you're assessed with these three suggestions, if you find yourself working with others that have the same strenghts you. To assured folks that want to be in charge of do things don't always get along together, but there's some great strategies both in this book, and then hopefully in this episode that I talk about for project managers. So. Before. We get into that. What is self-assurance will according to the strengths book itself confidence, right you. You have confidence in yourself and your abilities, and your knowledge in how you can bring people together how you can talk to folks as a project manager, and that's a good way to approach things, both humbly but confident. I think right, and so you know part of that defining statement that I agree with an identify with. It's in the book that that's the kind of preface to the paragraphs before they get into those ten steps for self assurances. In the for someone that has assurance so if you take the assessment, you get with it or you just identify with like I. Did Pre assessment again? I'll do that and see what the official feedback is. Is that quote in the deepest part of you? You have faith in your strengths. You know that you are able able to take able to meet new challenges able to stake. Stake claims and most important able to deliver, so think about that as a project manager, we manage risks except rest. Mitigate all that kind of stuff all the time, right? Every new project is a challenge I would say We can state claims as project managers. Yes, we've completed these tasks. Yes, we've met this milestone. And certainly we have to be able to deliver raft. Deliver our. Our team our tasks you know to leadership to business owners, and all those kind of things, so I think that's a great statement. here's part of the statement that I disagree with and again I'm not a psychologist, but just as a professional Just me Here's something that I don't necessarily agree with and sit, and I'll give you the comment afterwards, so quote and because. Because no one sees exactly what you see. You know that no one can make your decisions for you. No one can tell you what to think they can guide. They can suggests so I think that is where self-assurance can cross the line into era gance. Right if you're self assured, but you don't want to hear from other people..

Like I think it's the latter compromises Ki- like compromise happens. It's the key to successful marriage to successful. You Know Parenthood you know you have to give and take. You have to be willing to stand up. Sometimes you have to be willing to give some times and as a project manager same thing so that thing about contract negotiations that's a back and forth, and can you get to a point where everybody air quote Kinda winds sure, but somebody gives a little more than they actually want to. At some point, and that's my point, so. I certainly didn't come up with perfect is the enemy of good but I love ct particularly believe in perfect the enemy of good or remembering that when their time is of the essence. When you're working from a contingency plan, we have less money fewer people. You're proved the scope. especially cove in nineteen I. Actually had someone else say that with on the team that I was on the program I was working in and I was so glad they said Could you start iterating and trying to keep doing this and doing this and doing? Doing this and you're like okay. At some point we keep having meetings and we keep doing stuff and at some point you got to pull the trigger. Hey, is it? Is it good enough to meet the solution now? And then we can put together a proper kind of more thought out more plan ahead, but dynamic plan down the road great. Let's do it so sometimes. Though you know we. We can't get lost in the process and think okay we. We have to do US administrative software. We have to do this or will this help the project? And, who's GonNa read that so I think consider that, too. So what is ineffective You know amount of communication of documentation of information to share to set up up front to share with stakeholders to get approved by your business owners by your sponsor you know we need the support from our leaders, and we have to lead team. Sometimes we have to go off script right, but it still along with those northstar objectives so while this may not be perfect. Perfect right now. If it's an adjustment because we had to hit, those contingency plans up. That's part of being a project managers having that discrepancy to be able to do it. If you don't organization you know, try and work that in his best. You can you know much of that is gonNA come from experience. It's also very important to keep leadership in the loop so again if you're if you're in a contingency scenario, your direct leader and on. Shouldn't be surprised when you say that. In a weekly meeting or a monthly meeting to steering committee, they should already know about it, and if you have some sort of eighty percent solution, you got it that you've you gotta get it approved by the state quarters right make sure you know it is, or do you best to communicate it in a timely manner, so there's no surprises. That's not fair to you to your teammates that you're representing on calls, certainly not to that leader so. We have taken that ownership. We have planned ahead, but we're staying flexible. We have identified issues and set those smart objectives. We are understanding that we cannot let perfect be the enemy of good because we are going to adapt seven patterns of highly efficient project managers I think we should always consider the WHO'd loop, so the Youtube and this parallel for cubby is seek first to understand then to be understood, it makes total sense and one hundred percent. hits on the print. Print principal application when communicating with your stakeholders, teammates and vendors I just liked the youtube tool. Because it's easy to remember right seek first to understand, and then be understood to me. Is Very communication focus which you know. He talks about in his book, and it makes sense right. If you're a good conversationalist, WanNa show someone you care. You'RE GONNA. Listen more than you're gonNA talk. You're going to be listening not just to respond to actually. Ask The question about what the person said I kind of touched on this, too when he did the. Episode Twenty Six of the show about crisis intervention team training, listening to someone lighting them talk without just saying you understand, or the should that is hugely important to escalate is also hugely important as a project manager. You're you're gonNa de-escalate stuff right as a project manager, but in this instance the you'd loop, and why think it applies in his a great pattern, the fifth pattern here to be more efficient as a project manager is one. It was developed by fighter pilot in the Korean War and you WANNA. WanNa talk about not having time to think when you have to have this system and you just do it so you don't know what the loop is. It's very popular and public safety in the military. It's been in some leadership. Things many actually 'cause it works y proposed so Yuda or ODA a stands for observe Orient. Decide, and act right. I mentioned it's it's methodology that successful Korean fighter pilot American, a fighter pilot in the Korean War came up with was way when he was. Fighting against other people flying jets trying to kill him How do I look and see what's see what's happening by observing Orient Myself? How do we decide what to do in an act? Right because you don't have time well. So how does a project manager do that? So when we we first join a project we may not have been involved early like in the initial requests for proposal or P or are fire. Fire for information, process or the intake process if you have one when we're not when we come in, then it pays to observe through hand off conversations with your leader with whoever assigned to the project or shortly thereafter your sponsor, your business owners, whoever is going to be key?.

"project manager" Discussed on People, Process, Progress

"Make Progress, right? That's the that's a big thing on the show, so the first thing is take ownership. Yes, just like Jacko Lincoln Life Bob and always say in their book extreme ownership. Ownership it works it helps. It shows that you care. It shows that you're not gonNA use the day statements, and as the project manager I've said this before and I agree. We don't really own any of the people that stuff that we bring together to complete projects right, but will we do. Owner should feel big ownership on his the process right and we should take responsibility for all the aspects of the projects, successes and failures, so we should when we do great own it and give praise where it belongs to our team when we have failures, and this is probably the hardest part. Of Not using those statements, and while they should have done this, and they didn't tell me and I didn't know and again you don't show up for the big meetings with people with leadership, not knowing stuff about your project or your program or whatever you're doing as the project manager you have to take that ownership has Jaakko and say extreme ownership. So even you know he's an. An example so as a project manager. You're not the one that fat fingers a code right you hit. The wrong button causes assistant across right unless you're in a really technical project management role in your also part of the team Kinda worn both hats. You're probably not doing that traditional project manager now. COULD WE CONSIDER AS PROJECT MANAGERS? I'm not the one that hit the key K. Could we consider though that we could have provided more clear direction or more time more resources for the analysts to? Maybe they weren't as rushed, and maybe then they wouldn't have made. The mistake could be right. Sometimes stuff just happens, but you know what always look at it from that thing okay. I own this I'm supporting the project I don't like to say it's my project when people say your. Your project and I get it. It's yours because you're assigned to it, but it's not really mind right. It's the process to get people together to make that progress together on a project, so just think about that. How can you take ownership in different aspects and it doesn't mean take all the blame, but how can you constantly do review so the first thing I think that's going to be? A really efficient pattern is I take ownership. You GotTa do that right? Always consider. What could I have done better to help my team mate in the team overall just every single time you know in throughout the life cycle the project, the second thing which Kinda Parallels Covey second habit is playing with the end in mind to me I say plan ahead, but be flexible right, and so cubbies make sense playing with the end of mine, but you know sometimes trying to cram all the planning. Upfront for project is like trying to use a crystal ball or magic eight ball, and for some things we do have to do that, you know. Know for construction, or we have to have like say you're building a house, a foundation and then the frame, and then the pipes. You know you have to do those things in order, but also be ready that if what if something happens and you know just be flexible enough to not be so stringent in while we said this two months ago. It has to be just like this now. That doesn't mean you're not gonNA. Have you know fight scope creep and use your committees and make those decisions it just means plan ahead, but be flexible and dare. I say air quote Agile Right That's a big thing especially if you're doing software. Development You know again, it's hard. If you live in that waterfall world, I know primarily idea and a half, and trying to get some some more agile action in there but you know we we need. The Foundation for the frame had talked about before but you know we have to be flexible, so if it doesn't go away perfectly. Okay, and then what now get into little bit later, but but stuff happens right. People get sick. They change jobs. Supply chains. Get stalled. covid nineteen anyone personal protective equipment. Right so magic that you had this plan. Even if it was so, you're doing incident, management or something. You had this whole plan now. You can't order things from another country now. You can't get meat from the supplier now. You can't get supplies for the project. You're supporting All of that real real time stuff happening, so you could have planned ahead to a T., but you have. Have to be flexible and think about you know. How do we lessen or mitigate these risks? What does that lead to? We've talked about it here before a contingency planning. Did you contingency plan or able to do it quickly on the fly, so remember we. We like to use that pace planning, so have your primary plan it sunny. We got all the people in the stuff. We need all the time and the money. And then considered alternate plan We have to go fifty to seventy five percent people money and we have to do it in less time. GotTa gotTa consider that alternate contingency plan. Okay, we lost our primary resource. Can we contract our expert? Read our analysts. That's going to do the work so now you're getting into. You can't necessarily replace or just You, know, go down in percentage. You're actually losing resources losing time. Okay, you know this regulation says it now has to be a month earlier, so you can't move those things and then emergency plans. What if someone completely leaves? What if there's a turtle reorganize? Just stuff that you you can plan for in the emergency plan piece. Really. This pace model is really focused on wildland firefighting. Firefighting public. Safety but it applies here in project management, too, because there are emergencies right in real life things happen. What if a pandemic hits your entire organization right so now? What if everyone has to work from home? We can't do this. People can't visit changes the whole thing so pace, planning, primary alternate contingency and emergency plans. That's part of the planning ahead, but BA flexible second..

"project manager" Discussed on People, Process, Progress

"And you can look back through previous episodes and I did one just on charter elements but you know it the process of doing that. You'RE GONNA have some early good conversations as a project manager it manager. It's also a good opportunity for you to think about okay. What what do I think could be really efficient? And if you're new or just ask ask other folks your your leaders your your boss other senior project managers if you've been around for. I think it's always good to come to the table. Not with an empty or chart or not with an empty proposal but say hey. Here's what I'm thinking. And then how can we sure this operate? So you're not starting from square one four we're going back to that tender and kindling and the fire peace so for the the tin killing the tender. Rather so you know you hell these kind of like pine needles or or leaves or something and you don't want to just throw them in there because we'll just fall apart you WanNa Kinda Ball them upright so it makes a nice kind of fuel source. That's a little more compact plus it stays together and then for the kindling. Nabil kind of that teepee above those so for me as a project right. We're we're looking at the charter. We're looking at doing our kickoff We've brought together leaders. We've we've communicated very much to kind of let them know. Hey here's the structure. We think could work with this project. It's been approved with this or they may already have one or start of one so you know when you're looking at that tender when that hand off from the sponsors and leaders They may already have some of that. May already be kind of put together if you will and building those relationships right so kind of as you would with the tender and squeeze it together and make sure it's strong and it's it's working together. He ended the same thing with your leaders. As you get together as the project manager to make sure that you both have understanding of expectations for each other of your role right. What's the hierarchy of what you're doing is it project is is that not. Everybody works for you or you don't work. Nobody worked for you all that kind of stuff and the similar for the kindling. So you build that teepee. It's a much stronger structure really building that strong relationship with your business owners because these are the folks that you're GonNa work with very often that are in the leadership position to make decisions for the project. Day to day in the only exceptions kind of would be and that's really dependent again on on the level agreement that you've had is if there's a big change in money or scope or Time right or the quality and so if if there's a proposed change or an accidental one comes up that's when you and the business center together will have to go back to the leadership there so looking at step five is to add to the base right. So we're GONNA keep adding sticks to keep building up the fire as we need to get it going to get it sustained and this to me when I think about projects as a project manager. We've had some good meetings. Now we've got you know the bones of charter or maybe even a full charter. We've made sure that we're squared away. In our communication with leadership with our business owners and our partnership is pretty strong. And so for me. We're going to start adding tasks right. We're going to start getting down to okay. This kind of resource generally would do these kinds of tasks for this kind of project and maybe even starting to get into right. We have named resources. Now we're looking at resource needs specifically were asking for these type of analysts or this type of expert and the resource managers will look at their people and see who's available and then assign it and of course that priority depends on You know for me in the healthcare space. There's a lot of regulatory or safety or some some of those things. Help help us drive the priority verse whereas this in line with the other however many projects right so that that actually kind of helps sometimes but it also can be something. It project manager needs to consider because we're going to go to a resource manager and say. Hey I need someone or some people and it's not like there are people are just doing nothing right so they may already be busy and then we come in with this high level safety regulatory thing and that's something we need to be sensitive of is we're going to ask for their folks and it's it's a it's a kind of an ask but when you have very critical things to the business or the organization or the department it's coming to ask that's waited right but that's a conversation and that's that's part of the duty of a project manager is hey this let's just level set. This is this just has to happen so we have to have somebody the other thing. We can try to our schedule a little bit more right so we've got a high level. Hopefully one kind of month by month rough estimate way early and then now we can start. Adding some of those estimated hours from that level of effort early aren't and You know talking to our resources more the resource managers and saying well. What are you really think? And kind of get more into it and you know just like a fire we add more kindling right or more would to the base and keep building up while in projects. Sometimes you know what it looks like at the beginning is almost never really never the same at the end meaning. Do we need more people to lose? People did the schedule get longer. Was it shorter. And so we're always monitoring the fires at burning well as it not do. We need to add oxygen to it like more people. We're going to be kind of agile. Which means we can do this piece of it. Then we'll evaluate it then we'll do another one or we sticking with the waterfall. Where even then? It's still dependent on the phase before it right so if if we haven't initiated well and I don't mean just all the documents in box checked right then we really ready to execute or monitor or do any of that kind of stuff so number six as light the fire right now. We've got all this stuff together we've got our kindling and our base and everything. It's you know striking a match leading it from the box of the pyramid from the bottom per you know again stuff guys need to know book. It's great so when the team is ready for me for projects that's when we're going to make sure we get approval right and we're GONNA execute so we're going to start building stuff. We're going to start changing the workflow or or adapting it or whatever. The project is focused again for it. It's you know we're going to build the software. We're going to work with the vendor to build the software based on specs that we give them or we're going to prepare the devices or a combination of all of that together right because you know some complex projects have a bit of all of that and then we're going to execute the work we're going to build and they were going to get ready to and then eventually go live. Which means we're going to put this new thing in place. We're going to improve on whatever process we had but it's the day where we say. Okay these new devices are out there. This new software is coming out and so there's a lot of preparation that we've done in preparing the site and building up the fire and having relationships and now it's time to light it at some point. We just have to go and IT'S A. It's a very stressful time for everybody. Because it's we've already put a lot of work in this point and now we're GONNA see it out in the environment which I've mentioned before if you've done projects out there or any other kind of task you know that you can test something on a few folks you can do it in the lab. But it's never the same until you actually start right so you can have the prettiest looking base with tinder and kindling. And it's ready to go when it's all dry and it takes like twenty matches to get it. Let right is as good as it looks. The fire doesn't start and if you've ever gone camping then you know that that could be a problem so number seven is to keep the fire going right so you gotta keep it. You get lit now you gotTa keep it going at least for awhile. Maybe we were GONNA cook. It's keeping you warm. You're going to build from the fire. Guidance from guys need no. I'm GonNa this is step number seven you're gonNA build a fire with larger pieces and add is necessary right pretty straightforward so. Let it. It's going to keep it going. You're going to keep adding to it and so for projects as a project manager. You're executing you live. You'RE GONNA be proactive in supporting. Your team's removing obstacles. If they have any maybe some areas didn't even realize the project was coming their way. So that's a gap right that circles back to communication what. How do we fix that gap other people that are obstacles? That don't WanNa do the new thing. The new process use the new product. Well that needs to be brought up with your business owner. What they were leaders We need to work through that. Because it's not. You know your projects team whose job it was to make the stuff you know the technical things devices together to sell this to everyone to use it. It's it's yours as a project manager with leadership to do that ahead of time as much as possible and when you run into obstacles to help facilitate discussions to say to let folks know the why of things right asked for more resources if you need him. So if you're fires. Dampening down you need more would right got get it in the woods. GotTa get it from the store if you buying those bundles. If you're on a project in your in your becoming kind of resource poor because you run out of stuff where people are out. Or changing your whatever's happening then you gotta ahead of time. Proactively can for expected things for unexpected. Get back to this resource managers and say. Hey you know this is slowing us down. This is the gap we have. And do the best you can and it may not even be your folks that may be the vendors so escalating with your primary reporting contact and then the leadership and their organ and all that kind of stuff and you got to keep up to date so party keeping the fire going of keeping the support for the project in the awareness and the buy in is letting leaders know. Here's how the go live is going. Here's how adoption is going. Here's or not going right. It's not going to go perfect. But here's the status of it. Let's stay up to date on our reports. Do the best we can and that aspect to that information also helps keep the fire going. So that if there's grumbling about this new product or process or something that leadership already knows about it and they can help their leadership meetings are in discussions or with what they see in support the project because they're in the now the last step of any fire but before that a step that you could take is subscribe to the podcast. Please reach out to me on People process progress at G. L. DOT com. There's a facebook page people process progress. And then there's people process progress dot com. So feel free to do that. So this last thing is putting out the fire right. We've we've used it. We're going to bed for the night. Were done with the campground. Whatever it is It's the old water. Mix it up. Water Mix it water right. Do that until. There's nothing semen. There's nothing ha there's no Kohl's As a former firefighter public safety guy in public health guy..

I'M GONNA use this new form that we're starting to use and I'm going to try and fill out every single task or update or just really kind of refine your schedule refine your task details or less details. Whatever it is to make your project more efficient. We should be seeking responsibility and accepting responsibility. The second of the principals with the integrity value that to me speaks to the You know I've mentioned Jack. Llewellyn can y'all might be familiar with them that listen Extreme ownership right so as a leader no bad teams only bad leaders so if we are project managers. That are proactive. That want to be successful for ourselves for families for organizations for all those different reasons than we seek out chances to have responsibility. We should want to be the person that's chosen to go help other people when they're having issues. We should also openly accept responsibility when we fall short even if our teammates fall short right if it's if it's our team that we're facilitating facilitating process for and that. We're helping some of that. Responsibility lies on us and the last is said the example. No one's perfect. Sometimes you'll be cranky. Sometimes you'll be tired whether you had your coffee. You're not stayed up late. What's going on and especially now right. We're in this long drawn out time of remote work and even though I've been working remotely one hundred percent for almost a year. It's a lot to not be able to drive around as much or go different places and you know but set the example so you know a couple episodes ago. I I gave the examples of of good telework of you know. Put yourself in that mode of I'm GONNA get up. I'm going to exercise. I'M GONNA get dressed for the day. I'm GonNa have my breakfast going to work like I would if I was in the Office.

Because there are a lot of is on us as project. Managers both from our supervisors from their supervisors from organizational leaders from the members of the team. And that's fine. That's that's part of our Gig so the next piece. I wanted to touch on has to do with becoming a leader why people choose to be a leader. I'm GonNa read another statement and again I'M GONNA swap out terms so fire. Leaders bring order to chaos improve other people's lives and strengthened organizations leading in able us to leave a legacy for the leaders of the future so that they can take our places well prepared for the road ahead. These are the rewards of leadership there affects will be seen and felt long after our careers. And so why be a project manager right? Why do you choose to leave? Why do we lead because we want to make a difference? How do you bring or how have you brought order to chaos right if you come in to like? I have a few times both in my incident. Management Planning Section. Chief had but certainly as a project manager where people are ordering stuff. They're doing things all over the place in different processes in your ass. Hey Go home outlet. See what's happening. That is how we as project. Managers bring order to chaos. Start with the discussion. I've talked a lot and one hundred percent.

See what the organizational chart is A. Who's who see what resources are available or get some and communicate start there and all the other tools and methodologies and whatever else will come along with it you know it and you do see rewards from that. You'll see rewards from the order that you've brought to maybe a chaotic situation and you're reducing people stress and you're making the organization more efficient and you're helping save some money and you know that that is a great reward of being ineffective leader or project manager in this case right so that in that first part of the statement. I read about fire leaders. Bring order to chaos. We'll project managers bring order to chaos. That's a huge part of what we do or what we should be doing.

"Everybody Kevin Panel people process progress. podcast thanks so much for coming back. Wanted to share a reading of a poem that I adapted adapted from rudder kipling's if you haven't read that poem please do. It's a fantastic piece of writing about pushing through not taking taking into account other people's lies about you and pushing through and really becoming a mand put doing hard things and again you can go F- and you'll find it everywhere As I listened to that a reread it recently I was reminded of the struggles and the challenges that project managers face. And so I I took that poem and adapted it for project managers. So I'm going to read that for you. Here would love to hear your feedback. People process progress. Go DOT COM or on the facebook page age of the same name and here we go if you can remain calm when rhys become issues and your sponsor is looking to you to resolve them. If you can believe in yourself L. for others blame you but have contingencies in place to address that blame if you can stay dynamic when the timelines slips or escalate when needed but don't burn bridges or deflect frustration but not get frustrated yourself. Do take some credit but sure the winds across the team if you can strategize but not make one strategy your master sir. If you can manage tasks but not only be test-driven if you can prepare for project failure or cancellation and accept both of these hardships and and move on if you can abide by the report. You've just given warped into a different message than what was said or accept many weeks worth of planning be scuttled and take ownership ship and leadership to replant again if you can put all your resources towards a big Bengo live and stick your reputation on one implementation at a time and fail L. But learn and continue to try and do not complain to your team but rather them up if you can push through the early mornings and late nights long after the coffee has no effect it and stay dedicated to your people when you are emotionally exhausted except the drive that says to them we can if you can present to boardrooms full of people or walk with the C. Suite but also the boots on the ground if neither vendors nor co workers can hurt you if you can earn respect and help your team but not become a crutch if you can optimize optimize your meetings when together as a team. If you can streamline resources to complete your work yours is leadership and all that comes with it and which is more. You'll be a project manager my friend. Thank you everybody. That's my take on Rudyard kipling's if adapted for project managers might do one in the future for planning section section chief. I think it's again the originalism masterpiece so thank you so much for listening for a few minutes to adaptation hoop. y'All have a great weekend and Godspeed..
