Build Your Capacity to Lead: 7 Practices from Neuro-Axiology-CANCELLED


Topics: Leadership Development | Decision Making Techniques | Leading Project Teams | Motivation

Based on her book Breaking Free: Leading the Way (2012), Traci Duez uses the emerging science of neuro-axiology to teach project managers the essentials of adding and creating value using their best thinking and valuing habits. This workshop teaches project managers how to make better decisions, set better goals, use stories to motivate their team members and stakeholders, as well as how to identify and shift to their best thinking when setting priorities and making choices. The participants will learn the secrets of being their best and achieving their success. Traci will use real-world examples and discuss key leadership practices and principles from her unique perspective of value (using axiology). Participants will be able to put their new knowledge to work immediately in their careers and their lives. All participants will be asked to complete an online assessment which will be used during the workshop.
