Personal Resilience in Project Managers – A Practical Example
Burnout Spirale englisch final

While I primarily wrote about resilience techniques in project and pre-project phases in my last blog, today I’d like to turn to personal resilience in project managers. As I’ve already mentioned, a study conducted by the GPM e.V., the German Project Management Association, in cooperation with the Centre for Disease Management (CFDM) in 2014, demonstrated that burnout symptoms occur considerably more frequently in project managers who were surveyed than in employees of other occupations. A total of 35% of surveyed employees reached the cut-off score for burnout, 40% felt burned out by their work, and more than 50% feel drained by their work at least once a month.

Competency models in leadership workshops – a project report from China

End of last year ti communication supported a mid-sized German enterprise group with the roll-out of their new performance management system at their China subsidiaries. Two trainings were facilitated by Dr Laurenz Awater, Chief Representative of ti communication in China, introducing a new competency model developed for the client’s global organization.
Competency models are an integral part of any strategy aimed at building a high performing organization. Competency models are an important instrument because they have proven to be helpful in

  • defining corporate identity and giving the organization overall direction
  • clarifying performance expectations by providing specific behavioral descriptions
  • making performance management a more effective process by transforming traditional performance review sessions into future-oriented development sessions
  • creating a performance culture and an appreciative feedback culture
  • redirecting the orientation of individuals and teams from monetary incentives toward maximization of development potentials
  • aligning company and individual development around commonly shared values and goals
  • forming a leadership culture which moves developing others to the centre of leadership behavior
  • building a corporate culture based upon core values and principles set out for the global organization
  • creating a common language among employees across hierarchies and national boundaries

Participants discussed the competencies and behavioral descriptors and learnt their application in performance appraisals by making self-assessments and preparing for appraisal sessions using case studies.
