"Standing On The Shoulders of Giants Through Collaboration"
  • Billie Johnson CBAP®, CBA®,PMI-PBA, CSM

    Information and Registration

    Ninety percent of organizations claim to be tackling issues so wickedly complex that they need teams to solve them.  It is difficult to find anyone that would declare that collaboration lacks value to an organization as that response would be deemed unpopular in most organizations today, however what does it mean to “do collaboration”?  Everyone in your organization likely has different ideas about “being collaborative.  This means differing expectations and misunderstandings, resulting in less than optimal experiences.  AND what if collaboration has not been a priority in organizations?  You can be a more valuable resource in your organization by improving collaboration.

    This presentation will address the following points:
  • Overview of benefits of collaboration to debunk the idea of a lone geniuses, but rather the genius is typically standing on the shoulders of giants.
  • Meet the downside of collaboration and arm ourselves against the challenges that will be encountered planning and facilitating collaborative sessions.
  • Actions you can implement to develop a contagious collaborative mindset.

    Learning Objectives:
  • Identify how to make collaboration a priority in your organization
  • Learn how to improve team collaboration as an influencer
  • Understand the downside of collaboration and mitigate collaboration challenges
  • Location: WEBINAR EVENT

    Program: "Elements of Risk Management: Insights and Ideas from Prospect Theory and Psychology"
  • Rashid N. Kapadia, PMP

    Information and Registration

    In this talk, Rashid will look at some significant failures in business, international affairs, industry, and finance (Enron, 2008 Financial Crisis, Eisenhower U-2 crisis, Plane Crashes, Cuban Missile Crisis) and argue that these were also failures of risk management.    Rashid will then offer some approaches and new language from Prospect theory and Psychology (the domain of gains, the domain of losses, inattentional blindness, motivated blindness, slippery slope) to better understand and prepare for similar events. He will discuss some of the work of “Decision Making” expert Max Bazerman about the Power of Noticing.  He will discuss some of the work of “Risk & Intuition” expert Gerd Gigerenzer about Intuition and Heuristics. He will also offer solutions from business expert Jim Collins to help leaders, and managers to manage risk better. He will close with an unusual argument that Risk Management is also an Unending Campaign and that it would be most worthwhile for leaders and risk managers to acquire skills in persuasion, (convince, charm, cajole) campaigning, and public speaking.

Whether you are looking to make more money in your current role or to climb the corporate ladder, I will show you how to do it and more importantly, how to avoid the pitfalls along the way. In this candid conversation I will discuss the characteristics of high performers, the secrets of hacking the salary planning process and how to dodge to curse of the Peter Principle.
