Micromanaging a project team is akin to managing each task or deliverable with extreme control.

This suffocating management style is likely to put a damper on creativity and inhibit individual growth. There are many reasons why this happens, but in general, it is not a healthy situation for the project manager, employee or team.

As a program manager, you want to help project managers improve their performance without stepping on their toes or stepping into their projects. As a project manager, you are keen on making the project a success while balancing the needs of the team, the sponsors, and the organization as a whole.

Learning objectives include:

  • Identify at least 3 behaviors that look like micro managing
  • Review 7 specific tips that a project manager can use to reduce the need for excessive control
  • Share some ideas to help combat a micro manager

So, what should you be focused on
While others are tackling the work of the project?

In this webinar, you will learn how to take the basic concepts for how not to micro manage and apply it to a project manager’s world.

In her current role as the Program Director for the Massachusetts Medical Society’s (MMS) Corporate IT Program Office, Bonnie is responsible for coordinating the efforts of project teams, overseeing the implementation of project standards, managing the corporate IT strategic plan, and leading the program to re-engineer the membership platform for MMS.

Lead Through Change!

The marketplace is changing, and the way you lead must change too

You can’t expect your people to change if the leaders are not willing to go first.

To drive change, you must help your people understand the changing marketplace, the strategy to address that change, and the important role each plays in delivering that strategy.

This typically requires new thinking, new behaviors, and new processes. If you aren’t modeling those changes then you can’t expect your people to do it.

Create Engagement First – Change Second.

During this fun and engaging webinar, Gary Magenta, Senior Vice President at Root Inc., a strategy execution consulting company, identifies how today’s best organizations are successfully navigating through change, while offering insights that have helped leaders successfully drive change initiatives.

This webinar highlights ways to engage your employees in your strategy and change process – showing how powerful visual images, storytelling, and facilitated conversation can create excitement, buy-in, and accountability for change.

An ROH?
(Return On Happiness)

How can we achieve the same ROH (Return on Happiness) that other organizations experience?

Research featured in Harvard Business Review show improvements in happiness and well being associated with positive outcomes in employee engagement (up to 10x more engaged) and higher levels of sales (37% average increase across multiple studies).

Social support was shown to improve not only levels of employee satisfaction – but also lead to improvements in customer loyalty and industry service metrics.

We have learned that re-training our brains to become more positive, more adaptive and more resilient in order to gain a competitive advantage at work is not only possible, it is essential in rapidly changing environments.

While there are many exciting possibilities on the horizon to assist organizations in creating a new, happy culture for their employees, the most promising approach is to focus in on how we do business each day.

By targeting our most important work routines and embedding more positivity into them, we move beyond “talking about happiness” and into making it a generative, powerful force at work.

In this third of a 3-part webinar series on The Happiness Advantage at Work, Devin Hughes, Chief Inspiration Officer at International Thought Leader Network (training and research partner with Harvard happiness researcher and internationally best-selling author Shawn Achor), talks to Mark Eggerding, Vice President at US Foods, about the daily practices and work routines necessary for organizations and their managers to lead positive change.

You’ll learn:

  • The leader’s role in defining happiness as a business strategy
  • What visible actions can be taken can successfully address damaging social scripts and the re-writing of new one’s aligned with positive work environments and business outcomes
  • How to embed individual and organizational work routines with positive practices to create positive emotional experiences at work
  • How to create space, structure and necessary time commitments for happiness to live, especially for new teams

Bonus: The first 100 participants requesting will receive a new release copy of Broadcasting Happiness by Michelle Gielan, Founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research, and an expert on the science of positive communication and how to use it to fuel success.
