Tom Crea of Blackhawk Consulting Group shared his "On Course, On Glide Path: Your Journey in Leadership Development" keynote with the Project Management Institute Champaign Valley Chapter (PMI-CV). PMI is the leading not-for-profit professional membership association for the project management profession.
"40% of first-time managers fail within the first 18 months"
A metaphor for leading effectively, "On Course, On Glide Path" is what every pilot wants to hear as they descend through the clouds. At your critical decision point, you either have the airfield in sight, or you climb and execute a missed approach. This continues until you are successful, or...you run out of gas.
On this eventful flight, project managers reviewed key leadership principles fundamental to their success, including:
1. Realizing self-awareness as a critical start point for leading effectively
2. Recognizing that building relationships is the key to effective communication
3. Compare and contrast leadership purposes
"Really liked the 'inspire others to lead and create leaders, not followers' message."
