How Motherhood Made Us Better Project Managers
Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the Mothers out there. At Echo Consulting, we are proud to have so many Mothers on the team. You may be surprised by this but raising children & managing projects in many aspects aren’t that different – you start with hopes & ambitions and plan for how you want to nurture them to achieve that vision. Mothers are often considered the “project managers” of a household as cited in Science Daily “almost 9 in 10 women answered they felt solely responsible for organizing schedules of the family”. Mothers set and communicate expectations, keep the team on task and on schedule, as well as provide stability and guidance in uncertain situations. But how has our experience as Mothers contributed and helped certain project management skillsets grow?
How to ask your manager “What is the Priority?” – (and get an answer!)
There are many more effective ways to proactively establish the priority of a task or project and position yourself, and your team, for success without using "what is the priority?" as a cop out. Invest the time to ask good questions and you are much more likely to get an answer that you can run with.
