Several years ago, while I was presenting for a very challenging client in Chicago, IL, a man with a tremendously addictive smile sat in the back of the room.  At the end of the day, he approached me with great enthusiasm for a successfully facilitated day I had just delivered.  A connection was made...and in this episode, I reconnect with Andy Kaufman, PMP to discuss the art and opportunity of successfully managing projects.

If you think project management is boring...This episode is going to change your mind about projects and project managers.  It is JAM PACKED with solid ideas anyone can use to become more effective at almost anything you do!

In this high-energy episode, we discuss many aspects of projects including:

  • Why you SHOULD talk about risks...and how often,
  • Using the "Two Week Rule" for checkpoints,
  • How projects are influenced by the psychology of pursuasion,
  • Navigating the "Planning Fallacy",
  • Book recommendations and
  • Much, much more....

Andy regularly works with project managers and project teams to maximize their impact during all phases of projects. He is host of the People and Projects Podcast and developer of e-Learning courses for various aspects of projects, including the basics almost ANYONE can benefit from learning.

There's an old adage which offers a subtle reminder of just how easy it is to "walk past a dollar to pick up a dime".  If you do not know what your time is worth, this is especially easy to do...all the while thinking you are doing something smart to protect what you've already earned.  

In this episode, Cooksey sheds some light on this simple (and often costly) mistake, and shares FIVE easy to implement rules to establish value on your time, and leverage it to make more income NOW.
