Project Managers often fear having to deal with difficult stakeholders. But there are plenty of approaches we can take. So, in this video, I discuss ideas with People and Projects Podcast host, Andy Kaufman.
This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy
Andy Kaufman works with organizations around the world helping them improve their ability to lead and deliver. This includes working with leaders at the United Nations and other global clients to teach and coach on topics related to project management and leadership.
Andy started his career as a software developer and was promoted into management for all the wrong reasons! He is the author of three books and host of the acclaimed People and Projects Podcast, which provides free PDUs through interviews and insights for his global listeners.
The title of his podcast tells us all about his approach – the equal importance of People and Projects.
That’s why I wanted to speak with him about dealing with difficult stakeholders.
Carefully curated video recommendations for you:
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.
