Monthly Chapter Dinner Meeting
Time: 6 PM
Behaviors, Listening, and Values
Speaker: Dave Davis
Dave Davis, PMP, PgMP, & PBA, is one of our featured speakers! Dave Davis is a practitioner of project and program management and a recognized professional in the field of helping businesses implement change. Dave has over 30 years’ experience in private enterprise as a trainer, manager, project manager, program manager, business analyst, and knowledge manager. Dave is currently a Senior Program Manager for Ohio Healthcare implementing an ePMO and managing Merger & Acquisition projects. He is also chairman of the Judy Hug annual Christmas Event and an active member of several other service organizations including: Mobile Meals, ALS Walk, S.A.V.E., and Nightingale's Harvest. As a person who portrays Santa Claus every Christmas season, Dave finds it important to ‘live the role’. Santa is expected to determine who is naughty or nice. This determination is made by comparing actual behavior against various values, virtues, and vices and a decision is made. This session discusses these behaviors and how they mesh with project management leadership, as well as the requirement of activity listening to wishes of young and old in various situations. A creative approach to a serious subject. Instead of focusing on Santa as a project manager or a leader, Dave has decided to focus on how values, virtues, and vices affect us on a personal and professional level on a daily basis. What are your personal values and your organizational values? What do you consider a virtue and a vice? In this presentation, Dave will explore these questions and provide examples of each within a professional context. Dave will share the ‘family values’ of an organization he was a part of and how team behavior was affected by leaders living the values. There will also be a discussion regarding virtues of being a leader / team mate and exercising soft skills within an organization. Finally, Dave will examine the vices that project managers may fall into due to the pressures of doing the job.
