THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO DELIVERING SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS, EVERY TIME!
Join the PMIINW Chapter for this full day of professional development facilitated by Colin D Ellis, acclaimed author of The Conscious Project Leader and The Project Rots From The Head.
Colin will run two master-class sessions across the day – one on emotional intelligence and one on culture building. These sessions will be highly engaging, practical and actionable, fun and forthright!
In this full-day action learning session, Colin will take you through how to excel at both. The morning will be spent discussing how to be the best - and most human - project manager you can be, while the afternoon session will center on how to build strong project cultures that are talked about for years.
Both sessions will be packed with information, practical activity, an opportunity to share information and plenty of humor and laughs. This event is a one of a kind to be run in the US in 2019 and is not to be missed.
MORNING SESSION - LEADING PROJECTS WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE
There is increasing emphasis on the importance of emotional intelligence at work. These hard-won ‘soft skills’ are crucial for building productive relationships, navigating change and uncertainty, capitalizing on opportunities and being your best self even when those around you aren’t! These are skills that can be learned and practiced and you will be provided with insights and examples on the following:
- What is emotional intelligence and why is it important for the future of work?
- Understanding your project management personality strengths and blind spots
- How to communicate any message to any person
- How to be empathetic
- How to break some of the bad habits you have formed
AFTERNOON SESSION - CREATING A PROJECT TEAM EVERYONE WANTS TO JOIN
Having a great culture is the ultimate competitive advantage. And before you embark on any project or piece of work, that culture should be agreed on and defined by the team. The crucial art of team-building is being lost with senior managers insisting that project managers just 'get on with it'! This session will not only provide you with the knowledge and skills to help you build a fantastic project culture before the work starts, but also give you tips on how to spot when it's going wrong! Specific things that will be covered include:
- What is culture and why is it important?
- The four project cultures and how to create a vibrant team before work starts
- Why celebrating success is important for continued motivation
- How to manage poor performers
- How to make time for innovation and keep things fresh
