Be a Project Motivator: Social Intelligence and perspective for Project Managers
with Ruth Pearce

Ask a group of project managers what they think about Social Intelligence and they will roll their eyes and laugh. The combination of social awareness and social facility is something that many project managers consider both important and rare. And survey data backs up that impression. Social Intelligence improves communication and rapport, and project managers as a group tend to have lower social intelligence than those around them. They also seem to have lower perspective – at the same time the good news is that we are high in prudence

How does lower social intelligence and perspective reduce our effectiveness as project managers? How does prudence increase effectiveness?

So how can we boost our social intelligence and improve perspective and in turn boost our effectiveness as project managers to help our organizations be more successful? Adopting the principle of playing to strengths is a big first step. Being aware of natural human biases is another.

This webinar introduces the concept of Strengths-Based Project Management (SBPM) and will leave participants with readily applicable practices that increase social intelligence and build personal and team motivation and engagement right out of the gate! It will increase awareness of biases that influence our decision making.

Speaker Bio:
Ruth PearceRuth Pearce is CEO of Project Motivator, an author and speaker, and a practicing project manager. Her 25 years’ experience is in a variety of industries including financial services, state government and non-profits. Ruth has spent her career learning and experimenting with engaging teams to make them happier and more productive and has published a book for project managers about team motivation.

She is an energetic and engaging speaker with a track record of bringing the new science of positive psychology to the world of project management. She believes that the role of the project manager is changing and becoming more pivotal as organizations become more and more project based. A big part of that change is that it is no longer someone else’s challenge to build engagement and motivation. Project managers have the chance to change employee experiences in the workplace and to build better organizations for the future.

In November 2018, her book Be a Project Motivator: Unlock the Secret of Strengths-Based Project Management was published by Berrett-Koehler. In 2018, she also co-authored Coaching Perspectives VIII with the Center for Coaching Certification.
