Apply strategies developed by General Stanley McChrystal to your own personal leadership philosophy

Session 2 (1 Leadership PDU):

Leadership Toolbox for the Project Manager

Learn three practical leadership tools which will immediately increase your influence and effectiveness

Jim Emerick will facilitate three interactive leadership exercises, each building on the other, that address common misperceptions made by managers and leaders. First, the myth of effective multitasking will be exposed with attendees working in pairs; second, an improved method for vastly improving accountability will be shared; and lastly, the audience will practice the new skills by role-playing in pairs. After each exercise, teams will share lessons learned, and journaling will be encouraged at the end of the workshops.
