  1. Dennis, you nailed it, great information

    • Ronny,
      Great to hear from you. You are certainly one of the great examples and represented all a construction professional should be. Hope you and your family are well and that pickleball hasn’t wholly overtaken your tennis game.


  2. Thanks for sharing Dennis. On point. The tendency to stay behind the computer has been accelerated with the pandemic. Not only for PMs, but for many other roles within construction (including Owners). Those who make it a point to stay personal, build relationships, and be personally available should have a “relational edge” over those who take impersonal approaches.

    • Mike,

      Thanks for the additional comments. Can e hammer this message through?


  3. Excellent video!!! Successful Project Managers are also good at seeing the big picture and staying five steps ahead of everyone else (schedule wise).

    • Jackie,
      Excellent additions.
