From Beginner Project Manager to Project Director - How to level up basic project management skills

Hi Recipe for Success Network,

We'll be starting a new series called Project Management 201 focused on how to uplevel your basic project management skills. I want to share with all of you how I used to tackle basic project management tasks, mistakes I've made and now as an experienced PM how I've changed my approach and strategy. Plus, I'll share the impact these changes have had to me, my time, my projects and project outcomes. I'll also answer why I think these changes are important to developing from an entry level project manager or beginner pm to a program manager or project director.

This series is focused on answering questions like:
1. How do I become a better PM? How do I improve and grow my beginner project management skills?
2. How do I go from a entry level project manager to project director?
3. How do I better and more efficiently management my projects to drive better outcomes?

Topics I'll cover include:
1. Agendas, Scheduling meetings, Holding meetings, notes
2. Managing a project plan
3. Escalations
4. Risk Management
5. Managing relationships as a PM vs. Program Manager vs. Project Director

These are useful regardless of if you're looking to be a Google PM or PMI-focused PM. In general, these tips could apply to anyone working in a corporate environment and are based on my own learnings.
