Projects and organizations demand more and more from team members and project managers today. Project managers who have good leadership and teambuilding skills are more successful in developing high performance teams and meeting demanding project objectives. James Kouzes and Barry Posner researched best examples of leadership, interviewing and surveying several thousand individuals for “keys” to each person’s “best” example of exemplary leadership. From that research they identified five key leadership practices that they have validated and re-validated over the years through additional research and assessments. Leadership is “common sense, but not common practice”. In this presentation, we will examine what makes a great leader “great”, looking at a common sense approach as well as Kouzes and Posner’s five key leadership practices. We will also look at what you can do to improve your leadership capability.
