Project managers rely, as do all leaders, on people who do not report directly to them to achieve the project objectives. They are well positioned to develop competencies for leadership roles in many settings: corporations, government, non-profit and volunteer organizations. In complex, multi-phasic teams that develop new therapeutic agents, the project manager often functions as both the COO of the project, working directly with the accountable technical or business leader, and as the problem solver who may fill in unexpected staffing needs. The “soft power” of this position presents an opportunity to impact the organization’s goals in unique ways beyond the conventional areas of scope, time, cost, quality and risk.
This session will focus on identifying and developing collaborative skills that will enable the participants to better diagnose their organizational environment and navigate to appropriate outcomes in both corporate and non-corporate settings. These skills are critical to creating engaged teams, avoiding burnout and delivering results that build a sustainable future for real people.
