You know how to manage your project, but can you lead your team? Tips to get your team to work with you and for the project.


Liana Edmiston, PMP

Project Manager, Esri

As Project Managers we manage our projects, work with budgets, schedules and client requirements but how much effort is put into building a common purpose and clear understanding of goals/objectives, fostering communication, growth and good relations among the project team members?

This session will focus on tools to keep the project team healthy, which contributes toward a more efficient and effective team. Ultimately this makes for better project performance and results. Some of the topics touched on will be:

  • Developing staff
  • Communication mentoring
  • Working with varying personality styles
  • What you can do to deal with conflict among team members
  • Why it’s important to be the buffer between your team and the client
Price: $25.00
