Today’s organizations are looking for tomorrow’s leadership team.  As a good project manager the next step in your career could very well take you to this next level: senior leadership. 

But how do you get there?   What will it take to get your career to this next level?   How can you move from a management position to one of a leader: a senior leader within your industry or elsewhere?

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 be 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.
