Project managers are faced with the dual challenge of not only managing a project but also leading their project team, often consisting of members who are not direct reports. Adding to this challenge, many project managers have had little to no training in effective ways to lead teams, no formal managerial title or authority, and often little understanding of their true role as a team leader.
Common Sense Leadership for Project Managers™ is a 2-day course that provides tools to help project managers become more effective project leaders. Attendees will learn the basics of great leadership with emphasis on the position many project managers find themselves in- leading with no formal title or position. Attendees will learn more about themselves, how they approach interpersonal relationships, and how they can make relationships less stressful and more productive. A module on accountability explains leadership responsibility and how to best leverage that responsibility to improve the team. By the end of the course each attendee will have a complete draft of a Leadership Philosophy to help them gain better self-awareness while also providing a tool to articulate their leadership approach.
Common Sense Leadership for Project Managers™ is the culmination of discussions with PMP attendees of other courses over three years and a survey conducted in 2016. Designed to meet the needs of working project managers leading real project teams, the course is presented by instructors with extensive leadership experience who use guided discussion to ensure the material presented is applicable to each attendee.
