People Skills: The Secret Behind Project Success

People Skills: The Secret Behind Project Success

14 PDUs / Contact Hours: 0 Technical | 12 Leadership | 2 Strategy

Project management excellence goes beyond producing project charters, detailed schedules, and colourful status reports. Projects involve people. There are team members, clients, management, subordinates, peers, account managers, suppliers, contractors, regulators, and numerous other stakeholders. And with people, there are differing opinions, personality conflicts, office politics, and sometimes hidden agendas. Your people skills can have a positive impact on project success and help to transform road blocks into opportunities.

Interacting effectively with others is at the heart of good project management. Poor communication and relationships result in significant issues and detract from what matters and what needs to be done. This course focuses on understanding ourselves and learning specific techniques and strategies that enable us to relate to and engage others successfully.

During the course, you will also have the opportunity to discuss issues or challenges you are facing and get input on how to address them. The session will include self assessments, group exercises, and scenarios/role plays that will enable you to deal with and discuss real life situations.

Topics include:

  • negotiation
  • conflict management
  • motivation
  • managing through influence
  • communication

NOTE: This course conforms to the internationally recognized standards of the Project Management Institute (PMI®). You will receive 14 Professional Development Units (PDUs) upon completion and electronic course notes that parallels the course content and serves as an excellent project management resource tool.
