Are you Ready to Lead Your Next Project? With Loredana Abramo

Leadership is a responsibility and a privilege. But are you ready to lead your next project? I spoke with Project Manager, Loredana Abramo about Readiness to Lead and how project managers can stay relevant.

This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

Are you Ready to Lead?

Loredana Abramo

Loredana Abramo has lived and worked on 4 continents across 30 years of Project and Program Management, and corporate program office experience. She is now an adjunct professor for online Project Management courses at Boston University Metropolitan College.

Loredana is committed to sharing her experience in project management, and has written and presented multiple papers. She contributed to a recent book, the ‘Handbook of Responsible Project Management’.

She is also a regular speaker on Project Management competency development and co-authored the excellent ‘Bridging the Competency Gap’ with Rich Maltzman, with whom I’ve also recorded conversations.

And it’s her expertise in competency development that is the reason why I wanted to speak with her about Readiness to Lead.

Readiness to Lead

I asked Loredana:

  1. What do you mean when you speak about ‘readiness to lead’?
  2. What do we need to learn before, during, and after leading a project?
  3. With the change and turbulence of project environments, how can we stay relevant?
  4. How can we each develop our own personal strategy for continued learning?
  5. How can PMs leverage their peers to create mutually beneficial knowledge-sharing habits?

What Kit does a Project Manager Need?

I asked Project Managers in a couple of forums what material things you need to have, to do your job as a Project Manager. They responded magnificently. I compiled their answers into a Kit list. I added my own.
