Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn … Fooey: the Project Management of Other People’s Stress
90% of what a Project Manager does every day is communicate.
However, communication is only a tool, and wielding it without understanding does more harm than good.
Unskillful communication causes confusion. Confusion causes stress. Stressed team members and contributors have reduced ability to deliver their expertise.
Be a coach! You work as a PM, but how about providing your PM skills pro-bono to a non-profit organization (NPO)? A Billion + Change (B+C): www.abillionpluschange.org/ Points of Light is a national program that strengthens the delivery and performance capacity of NPO's by connecting skills-based volunteers with the nonprofits that need them.
With a new twist, B+C is launching a “Coach2Action” pilot with select PMI chapters’ memberships. This “Virtual PM Coach” approach is being applied to help NPO's design early-stage projects to a higher level of maturity. PM's possess the necesssary tools to develop the NPO's projects; B+C invites us to coach the NPO's to an improved ability and to advance their projects using us as skilled, volunteer labor.
