Project Managers Leadership Workshop

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

Hide Section - About the Event
Project managers own a unique place within their organisation, tackling the complexities of large-scale change and the execution of vital programmes. Frameworks and forecasts form the backbone of any successful project management agenda, but in order to punch it up to the next level and emerge as a true leader and business partner, project managers need to expand their knowledge base and master a new set of leadership skills.

This 2 day interactive workshop will give delegates the tools they need to effectively guide and support their team through complex projects and reinforce healthy practice. Delegates will learn how to tailor their communication and behaviour and will gain an insight into how this affects their team’s capability. Throughout a series of expert-led sessions, delegates will experience a range of new techniques and processes to assist them in overcoming the common challenges of this dynamic field.

This hands-on workshop will explore the foundations of good leadership, provide insight into communication styles and engaging with staff and stakeholders, and provide practical solutions to problems commonly faced by Project management leaders. Delegates will build the leadership skills necessary to enhance their leadership performance.
