Engaged and motivated teams are essential to success. In this interactive presentation, participants will gain specific phrases, tools, and inspiration to cultivate an innovative, responsible, results-oriented team. It doesn’t require buckets of charisma – they just need to hear these seven things.

    Participants will discover:
  • The secret to doubling the productivity of their entire team in just 5 minutes a month (unbelievable until you hear how it’s done).
  • Ways to dynamically reverse the team’s attitude from “we can’t” to an enthusiastic “we can” without threats, large sticks, or begging.
  • Easy to implement tools to find more time for their work and get more work from their team (and make it home in time for dinner!).
  • Methods to build teams stacked with eager problem solvers, not reactionary problem catchers. It may surprise you a bit, but follow the plan exactly for stunning results…
  • And way, way more!

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).
