Leadership: Is It Really What You Think It Is?

 

JimBenvie HeadshotJim Benvie, PMP, the History PM, is a project manager and speaker with TyauvinOn Solutions. Following retirement and a false start or two he created “The History PM” blog and associated YouTube channel. His blog and presentations, combine a lifelong passion for history and four decades of project and operational management experience, to provide inspiration  from history for project managers and leaders. The concept is not simply to copy historical precedents, but to use them to expand your awareness, develop your thinking and stimulate your curiosity. Do not expect, “Five simple steps to becoming a stellar project manager”, instead expect “Some assembly required”. However, he believes that like Aesop’s Fables you will find the content both entertaining and informative. A long-term volunteer with PMI Houston, he lives with his wife Juliet in the Tomball area and his interests are reading, studying history, and cycling.
