Guest Information

Episode Description

Rick will interview Colin Ellis to talk about why project management has to change. It has to embrace all that is new and that works and discard all that is old and broken. It needs to challenge the current doctrines, structures, processes and people that are holding it back. What’s required is something that builds on what works well whilst establishing a different mindset and skill set that’s fit for the future of work. Delivery people that role model emotional maturity, build organisational agility and continually improve the way things are delivered to ensure that the organisation consistently achieves its goals.

The Work/Life Balance

The Work/Life Balance

Friday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

Our program is designed for many types of individuals. Executives gain valuable insight into some of the largest issues facing their business. Employees learn how to influence without power. Team members learn how to associate and get along better with their teams. Even non-business people will learn many things about themselves and how they view life so that they can adjust the areas that need adjusting. Each week we cover goals and goal setting and learn how to break down large problems into small achievable wins. We also share tips on managing people without the normal tools of an HR manager. I hope you gain a powerful perspective while enjoying the show. Our topics are much like the career of a project manager: wide ranging with unlimited potential. The Work/Life Balance is broadcast live every Friday at 2 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
