PMI’s Ethics in Project Management Community of Practice with Giusi Meloni, PMP
« The Leader in the mirror: Trust, Dilemmas and Risks in Project Leadership »
29 October • 17:00 CET/France
There are people who are recognized as “born leaders”, others who stumble into leadership and others who become leaders because of their position. All leaders however are leaders because other people are willing to follow them, people who share theirs ideas and values and commit to their vision, their projects, and their decisions. People who trust them. Trust, or the absence of it, becomes particularly evident when the Project Leader must guide the team to face the unknown, to recognize their fears and/or their hopes and make a decision. Trust itself might hide an element of uncertainty and, at the same time, it creates an obligation. When defining uncertainty, leading by example will be more important than ever and shared values must be upheld to unleash the full power of trust, uncovering potential ethics dilemmas along side with threats and opportunities.
This presentation will explore the impact of ethics in generating and sustaining trust in the project “moments of truth” with particular reference to project risk management.
