Impact of Trust on Business Analysis


Online Webinar
Duration: 1 Hour Credits: 1 PDU Category A Free
Presented by: ASPE (REP 2161)

Billie Johnson CBAP leads a discussion of impact of Trust on Business Analysis. All would most likely agree that trust is certainly a game changer should the trust level be high or minimal. However contrary to what most people believe, trust is not some intangible quality that you either have or you don’t. Rather trust is an actionable asset that can be created much faster than you might think.

The discussion includes:

  • Economics of Trust
  • Clues for detecting missing trust
  • What causes contribute to a lack of trust in your projects today?
  • Impact of Mistrust
  • Building Trust (quickly)
  • Trust Crusher

Reference: The SPEED of Trust by Stephen Covey

The most successful project managers know how to build and maintain an environment in which people, teams, and projects flourish. Having strong project management processes in place is not enough.

In today’s fast-paced, complex and chaotic business environment, strong teamwork and collaboration can mean the difference between project failure and success.

While traditional performance management practices focus on fixing individual and team weaknesses, this presentation explores strengths-based strategies for increasing team performance, team member fulfillment and overall project results.

In this brief 45-minute webinar participants will gain new insights and practical positive strategies for increasing the performance and fulfillment of their project teams.

This interactive presentation will explore the five pillars of building positive project teams:

  1. Climate – creating positive energy to heighten creativity and innovation
  2. Relationships – building high quality connections that foster collaboration
  3. Engagement – ensuring the team is committed and motivated to do its best work
  4. Achievement – fostering a sense of individual and team success
  5. Meaning – building shared purpose and linkage to larger goals

Combining the practice of project management with the science of positive psychology, she works with individuals, leaders and teams to define and achieve strategic goals while maximizing teamwork and creating a positive workplace.

The elevator speech is your opportunity to promote your project, your team and yourself. Think of it as a sound bite – memorably spotlighting your uniqueness. Not just for the elevator, you use it whenever you are introducing yourself to a new contact. I’ve used mine in the supermarket, at Tim Horton’s and at trade shows 😉
