I dropped from the webinar. The audio issues with the presenter were giving me a headache and I couldn't understand anything. The moderator was fine. Please check equipment in advance. I was really interested in this topic and this was disappointing.
Another aspect of PM Leadership: Seven Keys to Success, for additional knowledge

Excellent presentation and very motivating. I am excited to incorporate these effort into my daily management and allow the transition to happen organically.
Actually I am working to develop a way to measure key leadership skills over PM in the organizations through different methods and in that way thorugh continue feedback contorl and develop him as a leader.. what do you recomeend me to measure this
I enjoyed the presentation, although the audio was a bit challenging.
I think the gist of the presentation is that we as PM's CAN be leaders and the shift is really a mindset.

We can learn techniques that allow us to not just Manage a project, but to lead a team to delivery.

Thanks Clay!
