Speaker: Joe Perzel has been leading projects of all sizes and managing staffs since 1982 in both a corporate and vendor capacity. He has a background in multiple industries including healthcare, insurance, finance, government, non-profit, K12 and higher education, audit and compliance, manufacturing and agri-business. Presently Joe is Partner JPerzel Inc. as well as Program Manager at Surescripts LLC. He has also held leadership positions at Thomson Reuters, MN Workers Compensation Insurers Agency, Cargill and International Multifoods.

Joe has been presenting since 2002 on topics ranging from project management, leadership, career management and entrepreneurship. Most recently he has presented at PMI-MN (Twin Cities, Lacrosse, St Cloud, Bismarck, Mankato), PMI International, PMI Atlanta, MN State Symposium, St Cloud State University, the University of St Thomas and will be the keynote at the Rochester CTC Leadership conference in March 2017.  

Description: Successful delivery of any project requires you to communicate with, manage and influence people at all levels, both inside and outside your organization. Yet they all speak different “languages”. And worse yet there isn’t a roadmap, translation guide or hint sheet to tell you how to relate to each so that you can be successful.

This presentation will discuss how to identify your target audience, determine the communication styles and methods that works best for them and how to adapt your message, motivations methods and your style for optimum success. We will also discuss how to build a relationship with your sponsor and leverage your influence with them to set your project up for success.

The major points to be covered include:

  • Defining what a Chameleon is in the project world and why it is important
  • Defining and discussing the various target audiences and the keys to success for working with each
  • The skills and dos/don’ts a project manager will need to be a Chameleon and the typical roadblocks
  • Examples you can use immediately to become more effective

Learn how to recognize and adapt to everyone in your project world to optimize your leadership and messaging for project success.
