NEW - Agility in Leadership: Core Skills in Volatile Times with Steven Martin
DescriptionTopics: Leadership Development | Project Management | Leading Project Teams | Influencing
A solid foundation of leadership skills is essential, especially in today’s fast-paced environment. Not only do things change quickly, but the magnitude of the changes’ impact can wildly shift as well. In this hands-on seminar, we will review what’s different in today’s turbulent world and how project and program managers are needed to help lead successful initiatives in organizations. We’ll discuss the differences between transactional and transformational leadership, and how each style can influence the outcomes of your projects. We’ll then dive deeper into the five levels of leadership agility, so that you can gain an understanding of how to lead in a fast-changing environment. Next, we’ll talk about how leadership styles shift depending on the situation—sometimes even within the same meeting with the same person. We’ll wrap up by applying the concepts to a real-world case study, learning from how others led high performing project teams.
This is the leadership seminar your instructor wishes he had when he was early in his project management career. As a newer project and program manager, he felt he was vastly unprepared to lead others, especially during large fluctuations in change. This interactive seminar is intended to help participants in their leadership journey by setting a strong leadership foundation in these volatile times.
