The Guerrilla Project Management Podcast

Samad Aidane, Creator of the Guerrilla Project Management PodcastRecently I had the absolute thrill of being a guest on Samad Aidane’s Guerrilla Project Management Podcast. First of all, I’d like to say that Samad is one of the warmest and most welcoming people I have met on social media, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be connected to him.

Samad took great pains to make me feel comfortable as I was a little nervous about the whole thing. Sometimes I feel I sound like a valley girl on helium when I hear my voice played back to me. Samad’s kind demeanour put my fears to rest and he gave me lots of opportunities for breaks and retakes if I wanted them. (Mostly we just plowed through…I felt very relaxed.)

Samad asked me some very pointed questions, and I was amazed how thorough he was in preparing them. He’d clearly read all my posts and asked me questions I really had to stop and think about. All-in-all it was a genuinely fabulous experience!

Head over to The Guerrilla Project Management Podcast and have a listen to our interview together.

While you’re there, subscribe to his podcast and download his other episodes. He has great material and is very well researched.
Why do you think we are so uncomfortable discussing the critical role that emotions play in everything we do on projects and in the workplace in general? --Samad Aidane

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.

    Hi Geoff
    Your post made me laugh because I did a podcast for the first time last week too and had exactly the same thoughts going on too and was a bit nervous 🙂 I'll download and have a listen to you both

    I listened to it last night whilst cooking dinner, if I said “absolutely!” anymore times I think I should be taken out back and shot! I guess we're the harshest critics :). Tonight you'll be starring in my kitchen!

  • HAHA I'm so thrilled Samad and I will be starring in your kitchen! 🙂 It was great fun to do and I'm glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
