People skills for project managers – half-day course

People skills for project managers
People are vital to the success of every project. Without their engagement and buy-in, even the best planned and managed project may not succeed – yet the essential skills needed to inspire, motivate and manage the individuals involved are too often neglected and overlooked. Most project management training and literature provides little guidance on how to best work with and influence people involved in your project.
This course will draw on well researched and proven methods from the fields of project management and organisational development. It will cover the key people skills needed to build and motivate your project team.
You will leave the day with practical tools and tips you can immediately apply to your project.
