President's message - May 2023



Hello NCPMI!

One of the main objectives from the board is to provide value to our membership. We strive to do that by creating opportunities for career and professional development along with networking opportunities with your fellow members. If you were in attendance at the last chapter meeting, you saw this first hand. There were headshots being taken by a wonderful photographer (Lindsay Aikman), paid for by the chapter as a service to our membership, and after time for networking with our peers we were treated to a fantastic presentation by a local speaker, Lt. Col Mike Erwin. Events that provide this kind of value to you are our goal, and we hope to continue doing this with the various programs and events we schedule going forward.
In addition to the chapter meeting, NCPMI has a number of programs that we hope provide value to you, our membership. Among those are the following:
  • Communities of Practice - check the calendar! (link)
  • Certification courses - PMP-ACP in September, PMP in October
  • Social good events - Food bank Sat May 20th 
  • Career Development - Annual Conference Aug 29th at NC State
  • NextGen - contact if you are interested in leading this passionate team!
  • Veterans - contact for information
If you're interested in learning about our programs, I encourage you to attend a monthly Membership Orientation session. These are virtual and are a great place to network in a small group and ask questions about the chapter. The next one is May 8th. (registration link)
In addition, NCPMI participates in the Club 500 program with PMI. This program offers an initial membership to those in our community that are interested in determining if the chapter meets their professional needs. If you, or someone you know, is interested, I'm happy to chat to see if we're a fit!
NCPMI is here to support your professional needs. The board, the extended board, and all of our many volunteers are working tirelessly to provide more and more of these opportunities to you, both in-person and virtual. We hope that you'll join us at an upcoming event soon!

Chapter Meeting – September 2023: Effective Team Coaching Strategies for Project Managers

09-21-2023 5:30 pm -7:00 pm
Chapter Meeting – September 2023: Effective Team Coaching Strategies for Project Managers

This is an In-Person Event ONLY unless otherwise posted

Non-Members $25, Members $10, Volunteers $0.   No refunds for No Show / Cancellations.

Attend this event for your chance to win a signed copy of Be a Project Motivator: Unlock the Secrets of Strengths-Based Project Management Or 1-hour coaching session (value $249) to one of the attendees. The session will include the opportunity to take the Multidimensional Inventory of Personal Intelligence assessment from Adaptimist Insights (value $75)


The best leaders using coaching – the art of deep listening and powerful questions - to guide their teams forward. With coaching, project leaders can overcome some of the common pitfalls of a project for example, lack of motivation, idea resistance, poor communication, encouraging everyone to speak up, creating psychological safety.

Ruth Pearce, in collaboration with Berrett-Koehler Publishing, in 2018 published a book about turning project managers into project motivators. Based on Ruth's experience with the use of character strengths and coaching, various recommendations were made through the story of Maggie a program manager in a troubled team.

At the same time, Ruth started looking at the levels of social intelligence in project professionals compared with their non-PM colleagues. What she discovered was that social intelligence seems to be disappointingly low! And as social intelligence is part of the glue that holds a team together, this can be a problem.

There are ways to build social intelligence and to partner with people who have a higher propensity for it. Another approach is to develop coaching skills to bring out the best in the team. We can coach individuals, groups, and teams, and the in this session we will explore all three.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain what coaching is and how it is a helpful skill for a leader.
  • Experience coaching approaches firsthand.
  • Develop strategies for coaching in typical project scenarios.
  • Identify ways to coach through challenges.
  • Identify when coaching does not work.

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
