NEW! Discovering Your Personal Intelligence as a Project Leader with Ruth Pearce

Prework: Yes

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this training, learners will be able to: 

  • Name their competencies in each of the three domains of sensitivity, sociability, and purpose.
  • Explain how the competencies create opportunities and challenges for success and what to do about it.
  • Identify team competency gaps.


Human skills are deciding factors in our leadership success. Whether we can regulate our emotions, recognize and empathize with the emotions of others—and engage with others to motivate them—determines whether the project gets done well or even at all. 

A new assessment called the Multidimensional Inventory of Personal Intelligence (MIPI) has been developed over the last 10 years by researchers in Canada. This tool helps to measure competency in the areas of sensitivity, sociability, and purpose—or in the language of the assessment: emotional, social, and motivational intelligence. 

Join this training to discover who you are, how you come across, and which competencies may help you and which might hinder you in your drive for managing successful projects. This training also offers one of the first opportunities to use the tool with a master coach and trainer to discover who you are as a project manager.
