The Mentor Group – Project Management and Project Leadership Training (2 Days)

This Project Management and Project Leadership Training workshop focuses on both the technical aspect of planning and executing a project, as well as the project leadership and other soft skills that are critical to a project’s success. Our training for both of these workshops is hands-on, highly interactive and practical and enables the participants to immediately apply the learning to their own projects.

Successful project managers are managers who practice both strong management skills and effective leadership skills. Leadership skills are not the same as management skills. Strong management skills can be gained through experience and practice.

Leadership skills can be learned, and leadership qualities can be developed. Effective leaders develop new leadership skills to complement those that made them successful as managers.

However, even with improved project success rates and more technologically advanced tools and techniques to help improve team productivity, organizations today still face many complex challenges in setting and achieving their strategic goals. One big challenge is coming from the lack or weakness of “leadership” in organizations.

To be successful in implementing their strategic goals through projects and programs, organizations need effective leaders. Organizations need to have successful project/program managers who are also effective leaders.

Are project management skills not sufficient?
