success is based on what you do with knowledge
In postmortems that follow failed projects, a few usual suspects tend to reveal themselves over and over again: unclear goals, poor communication, and lack of alignment. Dig deeper into these big-bucket categories, however, and you’ll find that project failure almost always comes down to one thing - a lack of overarching vision. While #projectmanagement tools are good, even great, at taking a linear approach to tracking projects from inception to completion, most don’t offer an adequate way to keep critical information, ideas, and relationships in front of everyone’s eyes.

interesting
in humans -some can spot a fake miles away - so funny
This approach may work for short term interactions but I doubt it is sustainable for a full day without repeated sessions of pumping up one's self to appear more than enough. This could be tiring .

Let's say you delivered a phenomenal presentation and you ask the attendees to post comments on social media.

Do you get upset/disappointed if they ignore your requests for social proof. Do you disengage with them?



What are some of the reasons people would sing your praises during the class but are reluctant to share that good time with their social media network?



One comment I heard is "I don't want my team to know I needed a coach", "I don't want my manager to know I could not do this on my own".



The risk of failure is very high on the PMP Exam if you do not adopt the right approach and the right intensity towards studying and learning. This is not to be taken lightly.



How do you validate or eliminate the comments made for not providing timely references and endorsements? Do you disengage with these individuals?

Yesterday I delivered a free class for the PMP.

I realized ...

I am the secret sauce to the whole HPMC PMP training program

The coaching and motivation and connect-the-dot-solutions I bring to the learning experience is what project managers really want and need.

sometimes things can be so simple that we miss the big picture. Studying for your PMP -- Know someone who is struggling to pull it all together life does not have to be that hard. We are able to help you with PMP & ACP prep ...but you need to wave your hand --stand up - be acknowledged.
