To be effective, Project Managers need to lead through influence, not authority. That is not easy under the best of conditions. 2020 and the COVID 19 pandemic threw us all into a crisis and a world of uncertainty! No one knows when it will end. No one knows what the world will look like then. And no one knows the personal impact/hardships we may have to endure personally for ourselves and/or our families. How do you lead under those circumstances???

This practical, action-oriented presentation/discussion will concentrate on three areas of focus any leader can bring to their day-to-day routines that will better enable them to keep their team(s) engaged, motivated and less stressed.

We will look at how Clear Expectations, Communication and Empathy can enable you and your team to deal more effectively with uncertainty, stress and delivering your desired results.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion, attendee will be able to:

  1. Participants will learn why leaders need to lead differently when facing a crisis and an environment of uncertainty.
  2. Participants will learn how focusing on setting clear expectations, increased communication and bringing empathy can improve their leadership effectiveness.
  3. Participants will leave with specific actions and strategies that they can immediately implement with their project teams.
