Ep15 Unpack with JC – Sam Higgins Interview

In the last two episodes I caught up with Sam Higgins and our conversation was incredibly insightful and honest. We talked about his career journey from programmer to strategic advisor, what excites him about technology, the challenges facing organisations, the impact of a change in program sponsorship and what is a good project manager.

Today I talk about trusted project relationship between the Project Manager and Project Sponsor.

Definition of trust:
“firm belief in the reliability, truth, or ability of someone or something”.

What type of relationship do you have with your project sponsor?
When you trust someone, what do you see, hear and feel?

JC Three Tips:

  1. Trust is an investment, take time to get to know them.
  2. Practice authenticity, vulnerability and empathy.
  3. Be consistent, follow through on what you say you will do.

My favourite Sam quote from our conversation ‘technology becomes so advanced that it is indistinguishable from magic’.
