Servant Leadership in Project Management

Despite all knowing the same project leadership ‘techniques’ some project leaders seem able to get better results from those they lead than others. More interestingly still the project leaders that get the best results from their teams often appear to work less hard. If you’re interested in the project teams you lead achieving more for less effort on your part this event will be for you

Turning 'Theory' into 'Practice'?

This programme takes a number of well tested and effective theories and techniques and relates them to real life issues in a practical and relevant manner. Participants leave with both an enhanced understanding of themselves and their teams and practical ideas they can apply in their own roles.

Who should attend?

Project managers, heads of project teams, project leaders from all industries wishing to enhance their existing leadership skills
