I was recently called to Helsinki, Finland to address 800 project managers at an IPMA Conference, on The Power of Acknowledgment (www.iil.com/poa) . It was an extraordinary experience to present this approach to people whose culture does not necessarily include acknowledgment on a deep, heartfelt, regular basis. However, there was a tremendous response to the presentation and some rather outstanding results were achieved! For more details, please see my blog post on the PMI Voices on Project Management Blog (www.pmi.org ).
Your questions or comments about my experiences with acknowledgment at the Helskinki conference are welcome!
