This is a one day workshop that will deliver a new roadmap to your career.
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 workshop 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 morning we will explore the gaps between our skills, knowledge and professional attributes and those of famous and local leaders.
- Thinking like a senior leader - learning the language, talking the talk.
- Leadership Styles and where you fit in
- Thinking outside the box - creatively and critically
- Presentation and writing skills
- Decision making and good judgement
- Communications skills required by senior leaders
- The Strategic Plan – creating and delivering
