project management coaching
We offer coaching on the job to Project Managers who want to feel confident, accomplished, and well-prepared.
As people who have been there before, we can discuss problems, brainstorm ideas, and give supportive feedback.
You have the ultimate authority over your decisions, but we can guide you with expert opinion as work through issues yourself and create solutions that work for you.
Project management is a powerful approach to improving an organization's effectiveness. Unfortunately, there is a “gap” between the time that one reads a project management book (or attends a workshop) and the time when one tries to apply that new information to their work. That “gap” is best filled by project management coaching. It is necessary for a new approach to the project manager role: You need to conjugate project management experience with a coaching perspective to correctly develop the project manager in his or her profession. The project governance that “provides a comprehensive, consistent method for controlling the project and ensuring the success itself” is not possible without an object-oriented approach.
Project management coaching should adopt what is actually just a form of learning the basics, which under ordinary circumstances occurs during the period of life known as the “critical period” (Lorenz, 1949), when one is biologically predisposed to that type of learning. Use of “imprinting” as defined by Konrad Lorenz then enhances the capacity of project managers through their awareness and understanding of their potential in the management of the project. (Lorenz, 1949).
During the last 10 years, coaching has become an effective process in helping clients reach their goals and improve their performance.
What is Coaching?
Coaching is the process of helping people and teams to perform to the best of their abilities. It involves drawing out people's strengths, helping people to bypass personal barriers and limits in order to achieve their personal best, and facilitating their ability to function more effectively as members of a team.
Why Coaching is so important in Project Management?
Coaching is so important in project management because the project manager must fill several roles in the completion of a project. First of all, the project manager must fill the role of an integrator: he or she is often the only person who is able to view both the project and the way it fits the overall plan for the organization. The project manager must also explain and integrate the project with members outside the project team who may or may not be within the organization.
Benefit of Project Management Coaching?
To be an integrator with all of the project stakeholders, an effective project manager needs to develop several capabilities (Withmore, 2009). In our experience, the main benefits of the project management coaching are:
Improvement of current competences
Better communication and negotiation skills
Greater mental flexibility and problem-solving capability
Better relationship with all the project stakeholders
During the first coaching session, the coach explores the project manager's capabilities, identifying the present state and the desired state (the goals of the coaching process).
We provide coaching sessions for stakeholders participating in a project. This includes, but not limited to, project practitionners, consultants, students, sponsors, stakeholders, and vendors who:
Are responsible or accountable for delivering project outcomes
Work on project full or part time
Work in portfolio, program, or project management offices (PMOs)
Are involved in project sponsorship, product ownership, product management, executive leadership, or project governance
Are involved with portfolio or program management
Provide resources for project work
Focus on value delivery for portfolios, programs, and projects
Study project management
Are involved in any aspect of the project value delivery chain
