5 Reasons to Care about Project Communication

Project managers spend 90 percent of their time on communication related activities; yet communication is reported to be the No. 1 problem on projects.

Consider the following example: While planning one of my projects, my core project team assessed our sponsor, “William”, to have high influence but low interest in our project. William would routinely arrive late to meetings, be distracted by his phone, and leave early saying he had more important meetings to attend. When he was present, his gloomy attitude affected the rest of the team. They did not want to speak up in front of him fearing that they may have to face his disdain.

Be a Catalyst for Change

I want to introduce myself in my first blog on Converging 360. As leader of the Project Management Area of practice for RMC Learning Solutions, I wear many hats within our organization. In addition to being a trainer, I am a speaker and presenter, subject matter expert, and curriculum developer. And as of today … I am also a Converging 360 blogger!

First of all, let me say that I am truly blessed. I was hired and mentored by Rita Mulcahy, and had the honor of working with her for 18 months.

We all have our own take on what makes a good leader, shaped by our education, work, participation on teams and in organizations, our personal relationships, even our parenting.
