According to the PMBOK 5thedition, up to 90% of a project manager’s time is spent communicating and managing stakeholders.


No matter how long the list of qualifications and certifications a project manager may have, without strong relationship management skills, the ability to engage, influence, bargain with, “sell”, persuade and adapt their communication to suit an individual, a group and/or a situation, they are at the mercy of their stakeholders’ wishes and whims.


The New Project Manager Mindset – Magnifying Impactis for leaders, programme and project managers who struggle with some aspect of engagement, communication and influence.


This presentation (and the workshop it represents) deals with the stuff we didn’t learn in the courses we took to become a leader and/or project manager, such as:

·Growing and nurturing team members

·Making decisions, fast, with little or no information

·Managing culture / interpersonal clashes

·‘Shaking up’ lagging, de-motivated or over-committed teams and individuals

·Leading and inspiring in the midst of uncertainty and ambiguity

·Understanding and overcoming resistance to change

·Presence, mindfulness and accessing the intuitive mind when all else fails

·Handling the big picture and the detail simultaneously

·Influencing and impacting those we engage with - upwards, downwards and sideways

Gill Baronetti
Project Manager (PMP), Certified Coach, Trainer and Facilitator

As a project manager (PMP) with 16+ years’ experience in the IT environment, Gill understands well the level of engagement needed to influence the people / system complexity of IT projects. Early on in her career she came to the realisation that project success is never purely reliant on a person’s technical skills. Far more important are their “softer” skills – i.e. their level of self-awareness, their understanding of others, and their ability to manage and influence their stakeholders.This understanding led her to a path of study around the human mind and how we operate. In 2006 she became an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Practitioner, followed by a Certified Coach in 2007. Since then, she has been coaching, facilitating and training IT professionals, leaders and project managers in the art and skill of influence, leadership and stakeholder engagement.

Over the past 4 years, she has also grown her skills inAgile, has undergone extensive training, both in South Africa and the US, and is now an Agile Trainer, Coach and Certified Scrum Product Owner.

Through her studies in NLP and neuroscience, behavioural psychology and coaching as a profession, she continues to serve in the project management space, coaching, mentoring and training project and programme managers, IT leaders and often entire project teams.
