About the Presentation

Many are identified as having potential for being top performers as athletes, coaches, managers, or leaders. But only a few discover the extra that turns them from ordinary to extraordinary. Recent research into human performance and applied practice has identified several characteristics that consistently differentiate elite from the sub-extraordinary from the ordinary. The good news is that these characteristics are not inherent, but rather learned and applied by almost anyone to elevate their level of performance to extraordinary. In this presentation, the roles of talent, routines, perception and analysis, decision-making, and innovative thinking will be examined to identify how one can consistently achieve the extraordinary.

Topics to be covered in this presentation

  • The Role of Talent
  • Seeing the world
  • Decision Making
  • Developing Routines
  • Innovative Thinking

The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.

The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others.
