Please join us for a PMI Delaware Valley Chapter Professional Development Day

Speaker: David Barrett, President, Solutions Network Ltd.

Project Managers make great leaders. Through our training, studies, certifications and experience we have gained an amazing foundation for a future that includes the word ‘leadership’.

Today’s organizations are looking for tomorrow’s leadership team and many of us are well positioned to take on those roles – beyond project management.   But for those of us who do not want to leave the project management space, the potential of becoming a great leader still rings clear.

But how do we get there?   What will it take to get our careers to this next level?   How can you move from a management position to one of a leader: a senior leader within your industry or within the project management environment you currently work in?

This interactive session will put aside the skills and knowledge you need to have to be a good project manager and focus on what you need to be a great leader.

Over the course of the day we will explore the gaps between our skills, knowledge and professional attributes and those of famous and local leaders.   In the process we will develop our new professional strategic plan. Topics, discussions and exercises will include: strategic planning, key leadership attributes, leadership styles, how leaders think and work, understanding the business, communicating like a leader, messaging like a leader and more

Who should attend?

This workshop is designed for anyone is in the project management or general management space. As leadership is critical to all of our work, this session promises to offer great value for everyone.
