There is a tendency to think of effective leaders as being ‘front and center’ – so what would it mean to ‘lead from the side’? Find out on Tuesday, June 9 at 6:00 am EST (11am BST), as PCS Senior Trainer Paul Darling, PMP, delivers his talk at the PCS Virtual Expo on the topic of “Leading from the Side: Leadership Lessons from the Military.”
In his presentation, Darling says that “as project controllers, we are rarely in positions of direct authority over the people who execute our project deliverables. Nonetheless, we need them to be be successful in providing the critical data, at critical times, to the project leadership.”
Darling will discuss how project controllers can take inspiration from military methods to ensure that the information flow to decision makers is accurate, timely, and useful. As a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Army War College, retired commander of the 207th Training Regiment, and the branch chief of strategy, plans and policy for the National Guard Bureau, Darling is a recognized expert in the field.
