Seminar Description



Are you seeking the missing ingredients to move from good to great? Are you looking for the next generation of skills, mindsets, and processes to transform your performance as a project manager or sponsor? This seminar demonstrates how to integrate key people, team, business, technical, and organisational skills. Develop the leadership, learning, means, and motivation to advance both personally and professionally. This session shares insights, experiences, attitude, examples, stories, and passion that motivate action. Case studies and practise sessions help participants learn from each other and about successful practises.
Identify how to apply these practises up, across, and down the organisation, especially in politically charged situations. The goal is to integrate knowledge and skills that make the difference in achieving optimised outcomes, increased satisfaction, and bottom line results.
Develop and enhance the contributions you make to your organisation by being able to:
  • Change thinking about necessary skills to enhance on-the-job performance
  • Apply different approaches to leading and managing projects, based upon examples and case studies
  • Realise what needs to be done to achieve better results and how to do it
  • Develop your project or programme professional career
In addition to the dates listed on the right side of this page, this seminar will be offered at several locations in North America.
