3 Success Tips That Project Managers Can Learn From Luke Skywalker and Star Wars

Many years ago in a galaxy far, far away, operation Death Star was launched; the young intrepid Project Manager Luke was summoned before the Project Board, headed up by the Sponsor Leia.

He had been allocated a team in the form of Hans a senior supplier, a senior user Cieu Baka (he was from a strange land); the objective was simple, take control of the Death Star, implement a cultural change and a new more customer friendly way of working. Many months later they had delivered on time, to budget, scope and to the required quality standards; mission accomplished.

So how did they do it?

There were 3 key steps that Luke took to deliver this project successfully:

Death Star Step #1: Describe your compelling vision of the future.

Luke described his compelling vision of the future and he made it graphical so that it was vivid and resonated with the whole project team. It was a vision they could all share and believe in.

Death Star Step #2: Write down your project goals.

Luke wrote down his goals for him personally and for the project. He ensured that everyone on the project team had internalised them and shared them so that everyone believed they were achievable and relevant to them. One of the ways that they made them achievable was by using the PowerGoal Template, a tried and trusted way to achieve goals consistently.

Death Star Step #3: Take control of your belief systems

Luke and the whole team took control of their belief systems, taking particular attention to their MindSet; removed any preconceived idea about what was achievable and got rid their limiting beliefs and negative emotions from the past.

Genius Tip

The next step was pure genius, as Luke and the team discovered the innermost secrets of how the mind works and how to build relationships, this they did through a discovery session.

The word in the Alliance is that Darth Vader is a tough cookie to crack and they need all the help they could get as eye-accessing patterns would be useless and matching on voice near impossible, so what else could the do?

They employed business coach and MindSet guru Ben, who talked them about how they could achieve their goals consistently and come out of this experience with their MindSet intact and stress free. Ben had two pieces of advice for young Luke.

The first, was instead of looking externally for the answers he simply said to Luke, the answer lies within.

The second piece of advice was that Luke should get some help, and that help came in the form of some free training
