XCPM 1007 - Effective Team Building Skills for Project Managers
Use of teams in project management is universal, yet not every team leader has been trained how to do more than simply "manage". Successful team leaders share important communication skills. It takes more than strong business or technical skills to run a thriving and efficient project team. A good project team leader inspires others and makes working for them exhilarating, educational, and fulfilling. An effective project team leader works with team members to attain a common goal, inspires by example and deals with problems in a decisive but compassionate way. Students will be offered the opportunity to develop the teambuilding skills necessary to become truly effective and inspiring project team leaders. This highly-interactive course offers online self-assessment, dynamic exercise and role-plays, and demonstrative videos to achieve immediate results for on-the-job use.
