Have your people 'gone fishin'? If you lead a workforce, a team, or a family, keeping your folks involved, engaged, and motivated is critical for success. There's an ancient proverb that says, "if you give a man a fish, you'll feed him for a day; if you teach a man to fish, you'll feed him for a lifetime." But is that enough to motivate him to catch his own fish? Whether you want your employees to go the extra mile, your customers to buy your products, or your teenager to clean her room, you need to understand and appeal to the motivations of others. Motivational leadership expert John Verrico will bring levity and insight to this most important of leadership topics.

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings

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. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).
