Humans are a marvel of adaptive ability. But, it is all too easy to unnecessarily hobble ourselves whenever we unconsciously adopt inappropriately limiting frames of reference. Developing the skill of shifting one’s frames of reference in the project environment can transform a project’s fuzziness around work into more meaningful outcomes for our work product, and ultimately, for our customers, even when those around us are unable to or chose not to shift their own personal frames.
Mastering Project Work was written to help you become more aware of the frames you use in your own project environments, improve your ability to choose more meaningful frames for yourself, and help you to help others find more useful frames for their parts of your collaborative efforts. This course will introduce you to the concept of meaningful coherence and the power of perspective as you approach completing project work.
Mastering Project Work will help you to:
- Discover the impact of incoherence on project work and how differing frames of reference can undermine success…and how changing perspective can overcome it.
- Understand importance of transcending the master/slave frame of thinking in relation to approaching your project work, both for yourself and your team.
- Learn the true leverage points in project work and how they can be utilized toward successful outcomes.
- Develop a more productive mindset and frame that will help you and your project communities to thrive and succeed toward their full potentials.
Sample Topics: Leadership, Purpose, Responsibility, Decision-making, Creativity, Flexibility, Persistence, Organization and Customer Satisfaction, Coherence, Excellence, Integrity, Courage, Resilience, Priorities, Success.
