Course Synopsis

This is an interactive course designed to provide a solid foundation in key leadership competencies and to afford you the opportunity for a truly transformational leadership experience. As a participant, you will complete a self-assessment of your leadership skills, then master the basics of these leadership competencies: setting direction, aligning people, motivating and inspiring, leading teams, communicating, building relationships, facilitating ethical conduct, negotiating and leading change.

After you assess your skills, you'll create and refine a personal leadership vision and work on strengthening your leadership competencies as you develop your personal Leadership Development Plan. You'll learn how to empower yourself and other team members through more effective negotiation based on an understanding of the differences between competitive and collaborative negotiation approaches-and you'll gain an appreciation of the importance of a collaborative "win/win" negotiation process. You'll also gain a clear understanding of why communication is so important - regardless of how a project is organised. And you'll discover how business and personal ethics can influence your leadership style and personality, and how your 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, you'll 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 extremely valuable as they master important skills to get the most from their most valuable project management resource - their people!
