Michael Sypsomos, the CEO of The Mentor Group was invited to speak at the PMI Conference held in Bahrain and Kuwait, on December 6th and 7th, 2017. The theme of the Conference was “Project Leadership Through Excellence and Innovation”.
Michael shared a practical recount of lessons learned from his personal adventures over the last 40 years, that he encountered through leading or coaching projects with his presentation “A Personal Journey of Project Leadership and Innovation Lessons”.
He shared priceless lessons that are neither taught in schools nor are part of the conventional Project Management training; these experiences did not only apply to organizing, planning and executing projects better, or develop fit-for-purpose Project Management Offices, but also were used to overcome difficult times and often used as survival strategies.
This presentation shared actual stories from his various leadership or coaching posts he has held with companies like CITGO Petroleum, ARAMCO, Chevron, and PTT among others, in the USA, Saudi Arabia and Thailand among other countries, that resulted in savings and other positive outcomes. These accounts range from finding creative ways to turn a negative organizational Project Management culture into a world class PMO, turning a good Project Management organization into an exceptional one, to how he coached the planning and execution of a project that was granted the Runner Up position in the prestigious PMI Project of The Year Award.
The audience walked away with many creative ideas that they will carry back to their projects and companies, and implement for immediate results.
