About this course:

Effective leadership skills are perhaps the greatest determinant of project success. Project managers must demonstrate leadership effectiveness throughout each phase of the project life cycle. Review and recognize specific leadership styles in the context of real-world examples. Participative assignments help both current and future project managers enhance their own leadership effectiveness. Course content covers project communication, motivation, conflict resolution, negotiation, stress management and effective leadership in the context of project management. Participants identify the leadership challenges unique to the project environment, identify their leadership strengths and weaknesses, identify five conflict resolution modes and when to use them, and learn to differentiate between position power and personal power. Note: This course is NOT interchangeable with MGMT X 490.996 Leadership Communication Strategies.
