Ben Aston:
The DPM podcast is where we go beyond the theory to offer advice that works for leading better digital project. Thank you for listening. I’m Ben Aston.
Let’s be real, project managers are not good at producing anything. Although we might have been designers, developers or, in my case, pizza guys, we are not skilled enough to produce the products. We need to manage our team. How can we do this effectively? How can we get people to do the things we want so that we can deliver the project on time?
Management is one the most difficult jobs in the workplace. There’s a reason for this. I’m pretty certain that we all have had at least one bad boss. Listen to this podcast to learn more about the different management styles that you can use to manage projects and which styles are most suitable for your personality.
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka is joining me today. He is the Director of Product Management for Crema. Did I just say that correctly?
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
You said it correctly. You did. It was perfect.
Ben Aston:
It’s been two years since I was able to speak the words. Tucker is responsible for leading a team of Crema product managers in managing their growth. He also leads research and implementation efforts regarding process and best practices.
Tucker, we are glad to have you back.
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
Thanks, Ben. It’s a pleasure to be here today.
Ben Aston:
Tucker, tell us about your new adventures. It’s summertime. Are there any adventures that you can share with us from the past?
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
Yeah. I just returned from a meditation retreat. I went on a meditation retreat last weekend. It was a great way to recharge and bring a renewed energy to work each week. This was the most important thing that happened in recent years. I think I will continue to do a few of these every year to recharge.
Ben Aston:
Oh, you’re feeling zen?
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
I’m feeling very zen.
Ben Aston:
Did you have to retreat in silence or could you talk?
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
Yeah. You can talk at this one. Silent retreats are possible, but this one was as quiet as you’d like. The only time I spoke was at meals, when I was sharing a table with everyone else. I didn’t want them to feel rude or close their eyes. I was able to engage in conversation at that time, but I was not completely silent. It was very nice.
Ben Aston:
Wow. It took me a few days.
Tucker Sauer-Pivonka:
I left Friday and returned Sunday, so it was only a few days. It wasn’t too intense. It was an enjoyable way to travel. It’s about an hour from the city, but it’s out in the middle of nowhere. This makes it feel farther away, and takes you longer than a few days. You can travel longer without losing the travel time and all that jazz.
Ben Aston:
Did you have any epiphanies after your meditation retreat?
