Are you scrambling for a last minute Halloween get-up? Try stepping into something scary as a project manager!
Wear a Mask
A truly convincing project manager will always wear a mask. Clients can be downright spooky and you should always be prepared to face anything they might throw your way.
Trick or Treat
Relish the clients that are fun to work with and make them feel appreciated. As for the rotten tricksters, don’t try beating them at their own game. Instead, offer them such sweet work that they are stuck at home with a stomach ache. Offer them so much sweetness that they’re bound to overindulge.
Being as flexible as possible, even when it seems like things won’t bend that way, is crucial to this costume.
Be Prepared for Blood
Things will get messy when you’re in the thick of several projects. Some will get sliced and diced so much you can hardly recognize them.
Don’t Let Projects Haunt You
Keeping track of projects in one central place keeps them from falling off your radar until they sneak up on you from behind.
Join the Mob
Any zombie would agree – you can always accomplish more as a group. When you get in over your head, make sure to reach out for a hand!
Rest in Peace
Everyone deserves a proper rest! Balancing projects can be taxing, so it’s important to refresh your mind with periods of uninterrupted rest and relaxation.
