Do you like change? Most of us don't - especially when it's forced upon us. However, we all recognize that change is inevitable - especially in project management. Project Managers Olaf Lewitz and Michael Sahota will teach you new ways of how to help your team adjust to change and getting them to work with you rather than against you. When we are inviting, we take a risk. And we take a chance. That is compelling, and creates momentum, drives engagement. We increase capacity available to our endeavour not just within our own context but also within the people who make the choice to join and help us. Attendees will learn about how to invite team members to engage with you rather than directing and ordering and learn practical tips on how to get your team engaged more effectively.

Communicate, Collaborate and Worry!
