Leadership is an important skill that project managers should possess. Effective leadership is intended influence that creates change for the greater good by using positive means to achieve positive outcomes. Furthermore, people want project managers and leaders who listen to and understand their needs and who can relate to their circumstances.

This seminar will deliver concepts, options and tools that will improve your skills as a project manager and an effective leader. It is often said that "managers are people who do things right, and leaders are people who do the right thing." Both leadership and management involve influence, but leadership is about seeking constructive change, and management is about establishing order.

We will discuss different ways of looking at leadership in project management and their impacts on what it means to be an effective leader.

  • Traits and Strength-based Leadership
  • Task and Process Behaviors
  • Leadership Styles and Skills
  • Creating, Articulating and Implementing Vision
  • Establish Positive Climate
  • Effective Negotiations
  • Communication Strategies
  • Ethical Values of Project Manager and Leader
  • Case Studies to implement and reinforce these concepts

These are concepts that you can immediately use to keep your clients, executives, stakeholders, and project team members informed and your project will head toward a successful completion.
