Just Say What You Can Help With

Sometimes I make things to difficult. Sometimes you just have to tell people directly what you can help them with.

  • If you are having trouble getting your project done, you should talk to me. I can help get you back on track.
  • If you want to figure out how to track your projects or map out your progress, I can help.
  • If you want to learn how you should run a project so that it will be successful, I can teach you.
  • If you want to figure out if this is the right project to work on, let’s figure out what we should be measuring.
  • If you want to make sure that you are getting better with each project: there is a way that we can keep track of the total value that your project has brought to your company.
  • If you need a routing task automated: We can program it for you.
  • If you are struggling to be a leader at work, even though you don’t have the official title of project manager: I can coach you in what to do.

All of this I can do for you. This is what I offer.

I have to remember to use regular language. I have to remember to talk about the problems that I can help you solve. You might not care about dashboards and metrics (unless your boss tells you that you do.) But you probably care about keeping your work on track (so that you can tell your boss exactly where things are at.) And you also care about the impact the project has (how else are you going to know if you are being useful in your job.)

I can help. I want to help.
