The Critical Importance of a Work Spouse
Hans Eckman, Principal Research Director, Info-Tech Research Group

Life is complicated, confusing, and downright challenging. Although we can learn from our mistakes, we have guides who can help us through our trials and tribulations, and save us countless hours and mistakes along the way. Together, we’ll clarify the role coaches and mentors play in our development.  Even more importantly, I’m going to make a case for why everyone needs at least one work spouse if their life.  This isn’t an affair or workplace romance, but rather a unique relationship in the mentor/coach realm that delivers far more value.

Project Leadership and Organizational Leadership are NOT the Same Thing
David Barrett, President, Solutions Network Ltd.

All project managers are leaders, but our type of leadership is not easy.  We get thrown (or eased) into an environment that is fast moving, typically stressful, ever changing and continually challenging.  Oh, and we have no real authority!  Let’s talk about the ways we can better project leaders.
