Project Management Institute

Three-Dimensional (3D) Leadership with Traci Duez


Topics: Leadership Development | Communication and Presentation Skills | Motivation | Leading Project Teams

Have you ever wondered why project managers seem to consistently complain about the same problems? Are you tired of the same challenges recurring on each of your projects? Sadly, most project managers and leaders are churning because they are not focusing on the true problem; they are focusing on the symptoms. Finding solutions for the symptoms, i.e. troublesome behaviors, doesn’t solve the root cause of the problem.

In this course, you will learn how to better solve the root cause of the problem. You will discover the ‘what’ and the ‘how’ of leading in all three dimensions - head, hands, and heart.  Leadership isn't merely about changing the behaviors of the human “doing.” Exceptional leaders also know how to transform human minds and human hearts. Join us to discover how the best leaders don’t shy from emotion but rather embrace emotion as a tool. You will learn the T.E.A.R. model of motivation to impact the minds of your team members. And when it comes to you… we will measure all three dimensions of your life and you will learn how to use your thinking, feeling, and doing talents to become a more powerful, impactful, and authentic leader.

Participants will be required to complete a 3-part assessment prior to the course. The cost of this assessment is $125 and will be charged at checkout. The assessment cost is non-refundable.
