Have you ever been intimidated by someone’s business card? What can you do to achieve confidence and credibility? How can you use this confidence and credibility with your project teams and stakeholders?  The answer is surprisingly simple.

Craft a personal charter, create a plan with milestones that you are willing to commit to, get buy-in from everyone that will be impacted by your success, and then go for it!
