About the Program

Does your leadership behavior inspire cooperation or incite a coup? Are you an emotional reactor or a detached diffuser? Do you believe that emotions have their place – but not at work? Are you getting the level of cooperation and support you need to succeed? Are you motivated by the desire to succeed or the fear of failure? Does fear of failure prevent you from taking risks and fully enjoying your work, relationships and life? Do you have the level of success and happiness that you want? Are you ready to learn and apply a methodology that affords you the success, relationships, health and happiness you desire and deserve?

Join Sheila Savar in this impactful workshop – with case studies - where you’ll learn:
  • Behavior’s direct impact on project performance and success.
  • Why Self-awareness is key to greater professional and personal success.
  • The significant role emotions play in effective PM and the danger of ignoring them.
  • The ‘One Thing’ most responsible for sabotaging conversations, relationships and accomplishments.
  • How to comfortably engage in difficult conversations – with anyone - without triggering fight/flight response.
  • The five EQ competencies that make you a better managing people, projects and risks.
  • The leadership skills that inspire desired behavioral change in others - earning their trust and loyalty.
  • How stress destroys human engagement, health and success.  
  • Stress management techniques you can use anywhere – anytime.
