      The Project Management Professional (PMP) designation is a prestigious designation for Project Managers. For 2020, the PMP exams have been revised to keep up with new technological & managerial practices. There is even now a focus on people, where best practices include team building using grateful leadership principles.

      From IIL blogThis excellent article shares 5 leadership major pitfalls to avoid
      https://blog.iil.com/the-5-donts-of-project-management/

      I have seen some major “do nots” throughout a 27-year career in project management and it is only in hindsight that these became my lessons for the future.

      1. Don’t get stuck in the weeds (too much detail or micro-managing)
      2. Don’t take a short corner route for your own gain (do best for your company & team overall)
      3. Don’t keep problems to yourself (get help on very difficult issues)
      4. Don’t be afraid to challenge those around you (stretch team members & inspire them to grow)
      5. Don’t hide behind your desk (manage by “walking around” & encourage team

      From IIL Blogs — This excellent article from the IIL blogs shares an excellent Q&A series on “leading with Joy” as you work with employees, customers, vendors, and other stakeholders of the organization.  “Leading with Joy” uses a theme of a positive attitude, acknowledgment of others, and grateful leadership principals.  It is applicable to business, IT, or any other management approach 🙂

      From IIL blog — This excellent article shares the value of simplification to improve communication, focus, and cost savings.  This is a great concept for grateful leadership & project management needs

      https://blog.iil.com/lisa-bodell-on-simplification-and-innovation/

      Should it always be so simple? What if the situation is really complex?  It should be as simple AS POSSIBLE. We use an acronym called M-U-R-A:

      1. Minimal – Making something as minimal as possible is the one part of the definition everyone always knows. You can get more value from your company or employees by being more focused, more nimble. If we can get in the mindset that less equals value, that’s the very first step. But this is where most people stop; there is more to simplicity than just minimizing.

      2. Understandable – Another element of simplification is to ensure something is as understandable as possible. This is about clarity — no acronyms, no jargon, no big words to sound important. Being ‘understandable’ means getting to the heart of what you mean quickly.

      3. Repeatable – Next: simplicity involves being as repeatable as possible. This is about effectiveness through consistency — avoiding one-off efforts or customizing everything you do. We want to avoid reinventing the wheel each time we do something –this helps us save time, share learning, and ensure we’re repeating best practices.

      4. Accessible – Finally, simplicity is about making things as accessible AS POSSIBLE. This involves being more transparent and open to a wider audience to accomplish more things in an easier way

      From IIL blogs – There are some indirect concepts of grateful leadership found in latest IIL blog article — as one must do MORE than satisfy the customer & it sometimes requires grateful leadership concepts in getting team highly motivated & all parties partnering & working in harmony together 🙂

      https://blog.iil.com/customer-satisfaction-is-a-myth/

      QUOTE – Of course, there are those who are willing to accept a “satisfactory” experience if the price is low enough. That’s why, despite all the whining and complaining people do regarding air travel, for example, discount airlines make tons of money packing planes to the gills. Heck, even the major airlines offer “cheap seats” if you’re willing to cram yourself into a small seat, sit way in the back, and have to pay for a beverage.

      Over the years I’ve noticed that clients really don’t want to be “satisfied.” Why? Because achieving satisfaction is just meeting the requirements. And even though that’s the traditional definition of quality, it’s a pretty low bar these days. Clients want to be wowed, delighted, or even astonished. They want, and expect, us to go above and beyond given the level of investment in, and the importance of, their projects.

      From IIL blogs – The Center for Grateful Leadership is a site devoted to improving management practices from the older line management & authoritarian theme where employees are expected to do their jobs & there is often limited encouragement or rewards for superlative team or individual efforts.  The CGL framework is more of a team building style where employees are recognized, coached, and encouraged in a modern leadership style.
