Location: Westborough DoubleTree Hotel
Time: 6:00pm - 8:10pm
PDUs: 1 Leadership; .5 Strategic & Business Management
Whats the difference between a good Project Manager and a great one? It's not their amazing budget analysis or mind-blowing skills with Microsoft Project. The great PMs are also great Leaders.
But the path to become an effective leader isn’t as straightforward as learning how to create a RACI, a Risk Register, or even a Scrum Board. You’re constantly dealing with people – everyone on your project is unique, with a different goal, point of view, experience, and personality. How do you get the best out of everyone without catering to each person (and without driving yourself crazy in the process)?
In this presentation we’ll take a look at 5 areas of project leadership frustration:
- Cross-Functional Alignment
- Executive Support
- Resource Motivation
- Resource Allocation
- Personal Effectiveness
We will talk about what makes these areas so challenging, and with that knowledge learn practical tools to overcome them so you can upgrade your leadership skills from good to great!
