PROJECT LEADERSHIP SKILLS

Technical

 

ABOUT THE COURSE

To be effective within an organization, project

managers need to have a wide variety of skills and

abilities. Included among these are: creating and

executing on a vision; motivating others; influencing

without authority; networking; communicating up,

down and laterally; managing stakeholders; and

managing conflict.

 

This highly interactive workshop focuses on building

the soft skills that are critical to leading a team and

creating sustainable business change. Participants

will gain insight into the social science as well as the

brain science behind motivating and empowering

others. They will learn and experiment with a

variety of influencing strategies and tactics. They

will collaborate with others to brainstorm, share

experiences, and apply concepts to everyday

challenges.

 

Participants will also discover their personal

communication preferences, strengths, and blind

spots, and will gain insight into how best to

communicate with others they find “difficult.” They

will gain insight into managing the people side of

change, learning strategies for dealing with each

step in the process. Hands-on activities enhance the

theoretical learning, grounding it in real life and

making it actionable.

 

Interweaving role play with experiential learning

and group activities, this course will help

participants refine a skill set that is invaluable to

their organization, and one that transfers easily

across their professional and personal lives.
