Project Leadership Essentials will challenge your views of the project manager/leader.  Clearly, project managers need to manage but they also must lead. This course will provide participants with an understanding of general leadership theory and relate it to the project environment. In addition to the general and current views on leadership and management you will learn how to influence others when you have neither the positional power nor legitimate authority.  You will also discover ways to motivate others when you do not have access to traditional management levers.  Other topics that will be covered are how to address team toxicity, team dysfunction, leading up, having difficult conversations and reward and recognition.  This course will also touch on virtual teams as they are becoming more prominent.
