Producing Results Without Authority
12 PDUs / contact hours
Project members, and particularly project managers, are measured by their ability to accomplish goals. Those goals are met, more often than not, by reasoning, persuading and inspiring others to share a vision and pursue a common purpose.
This two-day workshop delivers the knowledge necessary for influencing others and building trust in give-and-take relationships up, across and down the organizational pyramid and beyond. Our focus will be on identifying and assessing the core competencies necessary to effectively produce results through others even when you are not someone’s boss. You will take stock of your preferred strategies and add others to your toolbox. You will identify gaps in your network and set out to build strong and productive relationships with an emphasis on organizational objectives and being someone others will follow.
This workshop is recognized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® and as such will provide 12 PDUs (Professional Development Units) / contact hours towards attaining or maintaining the Project Management Professional (PMP)® designation.
Professional Development Units are allocated according to the number of training hours completed by the student and may be granted by increments of 0.25 PDU for each 15 minutes of training. A participation certificate will be given to students who attend a minimum of 90% of the course.
