A project manager’s role goes beyond the management of scope, budget, and schedule. Members of a project team are human beings with human feelings, and a successful project manager must also encourage, motivate, and relate to the members on his or her team. A challenge in project management is how to assure that things get done while motivating the team to deliver. This webinar will focus on leadership styles that are effective, influential, and valuable, so as to contribute to the success of your project.
This course will result in up to one hour of PMI-approvable Professional Development Units (PDUs) for the project management field.
