Course Overview Leadership is a function of our personal capabilities – courage, taking responsibility, being proactive, inspiring and involving others. Leaders can be found in many guises and different walks of life.

Project managers who help their "clients" (be they internal or external) define the vision and business case of a project go out of their way to deliver the best possible benefits by inspiring and motivating the team to implement that vision. For project managers to become truly effective leaders, they must stop working on the urgent and start focusing on what is really important!

This course will give participants the confidence and ability in respect to Leading and Managing Project Teams. Participants gain a practical understanding on how to assess and sustain effective team performance throughout the lifecycle of a project and how to identify and resolve key resource issues.
