Abstract:

Project managers spend 90% of their time communicating1. And, as Project Management 2.0 takes hold, we will be less project managers and more project leaders.2 How do we make that transition? What if leadership does not feel like a top strength for us? What if our communication is missing the mark in terms of tone, content, level of detail, and possibly timing? Research by ALLE LLC shows that project managers are lower on average in the strengths of Social Intelligence and Perspective. Leadership is a strength that tends to rank somewhere in the middle. But being lower in a strength does not mean we cannot engage it. And we have a toolbox of other strengths to leverage instead.

In this session attendees will learn about the statistics on project manager strengths – and weaknesses – the science of character strengths and how it boosts social intelligence, and leadership, and practical ways to engage your strengths within teams and with stakeholders to improve communication and be an effective leader

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand character strengths rankings and what they tell us
  2. Discover how project managers can become leaders through strengths awareness.
  3. Analyze your own profile to see how you can be a great leader
  4. Apply character strengths to self and others
