Congress, and the only session “sold out” in its time-slot.
About the Topic
This presentation outlines 19 key techniques for managing
people who don’t report to you, laying a foundation for management success even
in the most complex of team environments.
You will learn to build relationships with difficult team
members, and to turn challenging relationships into productive ones. You will
learn key techniques to problem solving that focus on successful outcomes --
not intermediate obstacles. You will learn to manage work more efficiently,
focusing on quick deliverables and breaking down work accordingly. Finally, you
will learn to create support through understanding, and show the team how their
support will help you all to deliver bottom line results.
This fast-paced session is designed for all levels of
project managers -- from small teams to complex, across complicated project
environments. These 19 techniques will help you to focus on your strengths and
rally the support you need to get your projects done. Join us for this interactive learning
