Leading projects is a great way to showcase your talents. It is an opportunity to hone your leadership skills. And it is a critical platform to prove how you add value to the organization.

Which means you need to excel. You need to be a great project manager.

That sounds daunting. Let’s just add a little more anxiety into our work life. Yes, and… It doesn’t take weeks of on-learning and months of studying to be a great project manager. In fact, in you think about – you probably already manage projects.

  • A holiday family dinner
  • Your last vacation
  • Transitioning your eldest from middle school to high school
  • Getting the garden ready after a long winter
  • Remodeling the living room

ALL of these are projects! There is a goal. There are a variety of milestones along the way. There is an end date. And – you need help and support from a variety of people who have different and/or competing priorities.

You CAN manage projects. And it won’t take a complex system or set of rigid rules for you to be successful. At this interactive and practical workshop you’ll bring one of your own projects and use it to:

  • Learn the phases of a project
  • Recognize that projects are as much about people as they are about process
  • Identify and apply simple tools to support project planning and execution
  • Discover facilitative techniques to ensure team alignment
  • Uncover the secrets of keeping the project scope and timeline on track

This double-dipping learning methodology allows participants to learn and set up a real work project for success at the same time! Most Reluctant Project Manager participants leave the workshop confident and fully prepared to facilitate their kick-off meetings. And, graduates have the benefit of two follow-up coaching sessions with their facilitator (a project management guru) to provide additional guidance as their projects progress.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Aveea Partners.
