From Chaos to Confident: The 6 Pillars Project Leadership Framework

Are you overwhelmed by constantly shifting priorities, changing visions and constant interruptions?

Are you spending too much time putting out fires rather than addressing the root cause of the chaos?

What if you could confidently lead your team, boost engagement and accountability, increase your influence to create unstoppable momentum, and accelerate outcomes and results for your organization?

The Six Pillars Project Leadership framework outlines the power skills required to effectively lead teams and projects rather than simply manage them.

During this session, we will review the core capabilities that project leaders need to develop to confidently lead, empower and elevate their teams. You will walk away with clarity on what you
need to do to boost your team’s performance in 2021.

Bonus Resource
Bonus material will include a downloadable assessment that attendees can use to assess and create an action plan to boost your outcomes and results.
