Synopsis

Project Leadership, Management and Communications is an interactive course designed to provide a solid foundation in key leadership competencies for a truly transformational leadership experience. Participants will complete a self-assessment of their leadership skills, before mastering the basics of the following leadership competencies: setting direction, aligning people, motivating and inspiring, leading teams, communicating, building relationships, facilitating ethical conduct, negotiating and leading change.

After assessing their skills, delegates will create and refine a personal leadership vision and work on strengthening their leadership competencies in order to develop a personal Leadership Development Plan. By learning how to empower themselves and other team members through more effective negotiation, based on an understanding of the differences between competitive and collaborative negotiation approaches, participants will gain an appreciation of the importance of a collaborative “win/win” negotiation process. They will also gain a clear understanding of why communication is so important—regardless of how a project is organised. And they will discover how business and personal ethics can influence leadership style and personality -  as well as how their individual leadership style and personality can influence the course a project will take.

Working with other professionals and an experienced instructor/facilitator in an interactive classroom environment, attendees will engage in revealing case studies, lively discussion and practical exercises. Project managers and business professionals who need to increase their leadership skills will find Project Leadership, Management and Communications to be extremely valuable as they master important skills to get the most from their most valuable project management resource - their people.
