Papercut in the Blogosphere Redux

I want to give a big thanks to two people who have written about Papercut this week.

Jo-Ann SweeneyOnce again, Jo Ann Sweeney, of Commsabilities, quoted me in her article, Building relationships of trust – the no.2 skill for project managers. When we spoke on the phone she caught me saying, “trust is the grease that eases projects, its super fragile. When trust exists certain behaviours develop, people think a little bit smarter, it gives you an edge.”

She’s spent a good amount of time interviewing some very talented project managers around the world. It’s a real honour to be listed among these seasoned pros. Why not give her article a read and see what the others had to say?

Corporate Geek - Ciprian RusenCiprian Rusen of Corporate Geek picked up mention of my ebook in his article “The Best of the Web for Corporate Geeks – July 2010“. The biggest honour here was he listed the ebook among writings by project management luminaries Pawel Brodzinski and Judith Umlas, and a TED talk by Chip Conley. What an honour!

Thank you, Jo Ann and Ciprian! I was thrilled to read your material, and your words were very kind!

I’m a professor of project management at the college where I work. My students continually amaze me with their insights, passion and all-around awesomeness. I figure they deserve access to more answers than I can give them by myself. This site is for them.
