Demonstrating Courageous Leadership

Mar 01
Effectively manage politically charged projects


This leadership presentation will prepare project managers for successful interactions with management and to effectively manage politically charged projects. The presentation describes communication styles, personal risk assessment approaches and helps attendees prepare for the challenging discussions that need to be held to successfully deliver initiatives involving multiple stakeholders.

Included in the presentation is the ability to successfully counter the directions of management. This requires the project manager to challenge, pushback and make suggestions to management that defend project integrity against the expectations of your key stakeholders. The application of standard leadership techniques is compared and contrasted with “courageous” approaches, along with the circumstances under which courageous approaches are necessary.
