A new Podcast is on the air and this week Ricardo discusses how our work and personal relationships tend to feed back into our perspective and set of implications. In the last Newsletter he published, Ricardo spoke about an event that was introduced to me by a great friend, Burning Man. Ricardo went to Burning Man this month looking for something “out of the box”.
In the "5 Minutes" podcast, Ricardo discusses the AI-driven Project Management Revolution Research he did with Antonio Nieto Rodriguez, covering critical aspects of AI's role in project management. The survey involved nearly 800 experts from 95 countries. The first insight highlights that 75% recognize AI's potential in project management, though Ricardo expected more enthusiasm.
In the newest episode of "Why People Got Surprised When I Shared My Certificate Last Week?" Ricardo shares a surprising experience. After completing an AI certification program often chosen by younger professionals, many people sent positive notes and called him an "inspiration" for project managers. Why does a gesture like that by someone over 50 and with a consolidated career cause so much surprise and impact? Why is it not the opposite?

This week, Ricardo discusses the importance of careful communication in the workplace and throughout projects. Each of us brings unique beliefs, skills, experiences, and perspectives to the table. Noise and wear and tear are detrimental to the project and our work when communication is unclear or the means used to transmit information is inadequate. The data we thought to be useful ended up being harmful.
To help us cope with anxiety, Ricardo discusses a technique he learned from Nick Trenton's book "Stop Overthinking": the 5,4,3,2,1 method. Every day brings new challenges, and it's easy to get caught up in a never-ending cycle of panic and worry about the potential dangers to our work and projects. The method is based on counting down from five to one; at each stage, we focus on a different sense in order to locate ourselves in the here and now.
In this episode, Ricardo talks about trust as a critical component to getting things done. He mentions that trust is not just a nice and politically correct word.

Ricardo also shares three tips for developing trust among your teams:safety, consistency, and honesty. Listen to the episode to learn more.
