Three Most Common Traps In Project Management

Eric Jacobsen Blog

In Susanne Madsen’s book, The Power Of Project Leadership , she recommends that you do not fall prey to these three most common traps in project management: Managing tasks, events and processes at the expense of leading people. Being reactive and focusing on the urgent rather than the important. Believing you have to know it all and doing it all instead of looking to the team for solutions and innovative ideas. Thank you to the book's publisher for sending me a copy of the book.

Becoming The Best

Eric Jacobsen Blog

My favorite takeaways from the book, Becoming The Best , by Harry M. Jansen Kraemer, Jr., are: Your best self is not about perfection (an impossible and, therefore, futile goal). It is about becoming consistently disciplined and focused, making sure you challenge yourself to truly be your best self—instead of becoming complacent, convinced that you have arrived. No matter how good you are, you can always be better. Being your best self is a lifelong commitment.
