It takes real leadership skills to organize, inspire and direct people when you are not their boss. These skills enable getting things done while building a more talented team, getting beyond compromise to reaching agreements that really work and discovering creative solutions to existing problems. These program and project management leadership skills are the foundation necessary for having a growing impact on organizations and careers. Participants will:

  • · lean the importance of relationships and how to build them
  • · understand tactics that work based on their unique authority
  • · develop skills to empower their team for creativity and accountability
