About the Presentation

Success is born of behaviors and choices that lead to exceptional performance. When we understand what is expected of us in the workplace, our performance rises to the occasion. How would you like to ask—and listen-in as others ask—a recognized PM authority questions regarding best practices in behaviors and other project and organizational issues that you are facing today? Leadership, accountability, and professional maturity issues are common on projects—too common. This highly interactive seminar addresses specific aspects of these issues head-on. Through a Q&A venue, attendees pose short problem scenarios from either a seminar-provided list or their personal list. Neal Whitten then provides best-practice solutions to handling these situations effectively. The problem scenarios can encompass a wide range of issues including accountability, dependencies and commitments; leadership styles, attributes and behaviors; sharing power; interpersonal communications and relationships; resolving conflict; mentoring; ethics and integrity; promoting change in your organization; project culture; quality; roles and responsibilities; project managers; business analysts; clients; management; project sponsors; performance of stakeholders; authority; escalations; domain of responsibility; and much more. Attendees will gain insights and concrete guidance on how to demonstrate professionally mature behavior that will enable them to perform at their best, benefiting their projects, organizations, and careers. The seminar experience is intensive, revealing, and focused—aimed at providing participants lessons that can be applied on the job immediately and that will have long-term impact. This seminar will also help project managers, other leaders and team members promote and actively contribute to an effective business culture. Learning Objectives
  • Examine your current professional behaviors.
  • Discuss and resolve common behavioral issues.
  • Learn professional-maturity best practices.
  • Become a more effective leader and coach.
