Speaker: Byron Parson, PMP
Managing Your Leadership Power, Part 2
No registration required!

speaker parson byronOver the years Byron has advised professionals across the U.S. as well as internationally. Whether the topic is career, relationships, or personal development, a common obstacle has been self-management. Breakthroughs were realized in all areas when the proper perspective was gained and a reality-based identity was embraced.

PMI presents 5 types of power:

  1. Formal or Legitimate Power
  2. Reward Power
  3. Punishment Power
  4. Expert Power
  5. Referent Power

One's self-management (perspective and identity) either enhances or detracts from the influence inherent in any of the 5 forms of power.

Self-management is essential in Byron's interactions with senior management and challenging stakeholders on projects at Health Advocates. For many project managers perspective and identity explains their professional progress or stagnation.

Many of the concepts addressed above are discussed further in Byron's book, "Walk This Way: The Spirit-led Life", available on Amazon.com and ByronParson.com.

About the Speaker

Together we establish strategic plans and objectives for individual departments as well as company-wide projects. Byron is responsible for the management of a portfolio of projects undertaken by the firm.

In concert with senior operational leaders, optimize workflows and procedures, develop algorithms to enhance business decisions, and automate manual data extraction and integration activities. Together we align projects with corporate strategy and prioritize initiatives according to quantitative value.
