Project Managers: Get inspired by the dark force

This is a very compelling list by +Brandon Koeller on why Darth Vader is a great project manager. And no, you do not need to be star wars fan for this, having watched the movies does help though. ;))

From a certain perspective his mass murder, brutal oppression, and frequent deception to serve his own ends makes him seem like a pretty bad guy. But if you look past all that to his action, you will find a very capable and effective project manager.In the name of finding silver linings in dark clouds, I’d like to present the top 10 reasons why Darth Vader was an amazing project manager.

Added a great link from Florian Dömges via Facebook:

Google's Project Oxygen

"In early 2009, statisticians inside the Googleplex here embarked on a plan code-named Project Oxygen . Their mission was to devise something far more important to the future of Google Inc. than its next search algorithm or app: they wanted to build better bosses ."

In order of importance the 8 top behaviours of managers are:
. Be a good coach
. Empower your team and don’t micromanage
. Express interest in team members’ success and personal well-being
. Don’t be a sissy: Be productive and results-oriented
. Be a good communicator and listen to your team
. Help your employees with career development
. Have a clear vision and strategy for the team
. Have key technical skills so you can help advise the team
In addition they identified 3 key manager pitfalls :
. Have trouble making a transition to the team
. Lack a consistent approach to performance management and career development
. Spend too little time managing and communicating

Opposite Statues

Statues pose in the lobby of the awesome Opposite House hotel... The whole place is a giant piece of art with rich colors and strange designs. It was great during the daytime, but I figured that it would look even more interesting with the lights were controlled. I don't know much about interior lighting design, but I do appreciate it very much when it is done well...

Steven Macdessi - Project Manager
Introduction
Steven Macdessi: Project Manager : I have successfully completed the Practitioner’s Certificate in Mediation as conducted by the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia. The Practitioner’s Certificate in Mediation is presented by nationally accredited instructors and is conducted Australia-wide. The course offers a practice-oriented qualification in mediation and participants who successfully complete the assessment module may apply for accreditation under the National Mediator Accreditation Scheme through IAMA. With mediation being adopted widely across the commercial, legal, industry, education and government sectors, an understanding of the practical application of mediation techniques is an important and useful professional skill. Such skills addressed in the course include the dynamics of conflict and negotiation, the principles, stages and functions of mediation and the skills that make an effective mediator.  It also includes examination of current legal and ethical issues relevant to professional mediators. The course format includes a mix of lecture, discussion and practice. ~Steven Macdessi
