project leadership drives future work

For many in the active workforce, project leadership drives future work.

As dramatic shifts in work behavior unfolded during the pandemic, one key insight popped out as truly meaningful.

Project leadership drives future work.

To help us explore the growing importance of project leadership, we turn to Rich Maltzman for guidance. He is a master lecturer of project management at Boston University’s Metropolitan College.

Rich is also one of the world’s leading authorities on project management, and, the co-author of two “green” project management books that help people and companies embrace the triple-bottom-line and positive social impacts.

In this episode, we explore the work of a project manager. We also discuss how project management skills empower people to be more intentional, regardless of the job title that they possess.

As we emerge from pandemic lockdown, project leadership will drive future work and enable people to own their express contributions to their team’s and organization’s success.
