We are living in a time of transition, argues Yann Moulier Boutang. however the irony is this isn't a transition to a brand new form of society referred to as ‘socialism’, as many at the Left had assumed; really, it's a transition to a brand new kind of capitalism.

Admitting that you are wrong and finding a better course of action is a far more courageous and credible path to take. Courage is also required to push back when sponsors impose unreasonable schedule, scope, or budget constraints. Without the courage up front to constructively resist and to negotiate with due diligence, project managers set themselves up for failure. DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIPS All good project leadership is based on relationships. People won’t go along with you if they can’t get along with you.
Humor is a two-edged sword. It can be used to ease the sting of confrontation and thus facilitate interaction, but it can also be used to obstruct attempts to deepen the level of an interaction or broach sensitive topics.

Problem Solving and Decision-Making Humorous stimuli can positively affect problem solving and creativity. Humor lowers tension and improves divergent thinking.
One program manager I (Englund) worked with injected humor into the minutes of program team meetings. Usually the target of his humor was himself, which is a safe way to do it. “Well, yours truly screwed up again…,” he might write. One project manager told me she looked forward to reading these reports and passed them along to her sponsor, who also was eager to read them. Combining entertainment with reporting progress motivated people to pay more attention to the program. Expressing humor in this way also revealed the program manager’s talent for humorous writing, which otherwise may have been wasted.
