The Art of Navigating Risk and Change - 6 hour workshop

Power Skills

In this dynamic, 6-hour workshop, you will discover both the art and science of 120VC’s purpose-built, people-centric approach that is proven to work.

If Projects always went according to plan, Project Leaders would have nothing to do. They would be able to lead projects forward in two hours per week. At team check ins, members would give universal thumbs-ups, and Project Leaders would publish status reports with nothing but good news. Since that never happens, it’s time to admit; “RISKS & ISSUES ARE NOT JUST FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS” Projects rarely go according to plan, that’s why the world needs Project Leaders. They spend the vast majority of their 40-hour work weeks navigating Risk and Change to #GSD. The ability to successfully Conquer Risk and Change has become the emblem of a modern Project Leader. Yet when asked how well their organizations navigate Project Risk and Change, CEOs almost unanimous answer; “Poorly!”
