E20 Naomi Caietti from Naomi Caietti Consulting and Raoul Encinas from PhosLabs
In this special episode of Project Management Office Hours Joe Pusz, PMO Joe, and his guests Naomi Caietti and Raoul Encinas discuss Leadership and how to be a better Project Manager by improving your Leadership skills.
Naomi shares the details of her new book, Transform Your Project Leadership! She discusses the 10 key leadership competencies – Brainstorming, Coaching and Mentoring, Conflict Management, Emotional Intelligence, Influencing, Interpersonal Skills, Listening, Negotiating, Problem Solving, and Team Building. We dig into these competencies and how they are beneficial to you, the Project Manager, to grow and advance your career. We also hear from Naomi some of her experiences as a consultant to capture her thoughts on the benefits of improving your leadership skills.
Raoul steps us through his experiences as an Executive Coach and utilizing Leadership exercises/techniques to assist clients on their Leadership Journey. Knowing we are not all at the same spot in our career, Raoul shares different starting points for improving leadership for a new Project Manager or a more season PM professional as well as for a PMO leader. A key for both Raoul and Naomi is to recognize that becoming a Project Management leader goes beyond just improving your technical skills. We must dedicate time to improving soft skills and leadership skills to advance our careers.

ABOUT PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE HOURS SERIES
Project Management Office Hours is intended to provide Project Management professionals a place to drop in and discuss Success Stories, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned. Project Management Consultant Joy Gumz has shared with us, “Operations keep the lights on, strategy provides the light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.”
Each of us has a unique story to tell, but collectively we share a message that organizations who embrace Project Management Best Practices perform better than those which don’t. Organizations which align Projects to Strategy perform better. Organizations with Engage Executive Sponsors deliver better results. Organizations which measure Project Management performance outperform those which don’t.
During our Project Management Office Hours, we hear directly from Industry leaders how to make an impact in our profession. How we, collectively, will Advance Project Management Best Practices, One Listener at a time!
