How to Know What You Don't Know, an interview with author Michael Roberto
I hear it all the time when people describe themselves in a work setting: "I'm a good problem-solver!"
Are you a good problem-solver? I'm guessing you would say "Yes!"Well, guess what?
According to Michael Roberto, author of Know What You Don't Know
, maybe we're all focusing on the wrong thing. According to Michael, it's not about becoming better problem-solvers
. We need to be better problem finders
I had the opportunity to catch up with Michael by phone recently and look forward to sharing that discussion with you in this cast.To learn more about Michael, I invite you to check out his blog
. Also, don't miss Michael's other highly recommended book, Why Great Leaders Don't Take Yes for an Answer: Managing for Conflict and Consensus
.One way that project managers become better problem finders is through risk management.
Have you ever been trained on how to more effectively manage risks?
I have an e-learning module entitled What You Need to Know About Risk Management
. You can learn how to use risk management to become a better problem finder and earn two PDUs while you're at it.
