How do you become a good leader? PMI has recognized Leadership as one of the 3 dimensions of the project management talent triangle and PMI’s research is showing that leadership skills are important for project success. Certainly, there are tools and techniques that you can learn in classes that help develop your leadership skills, but nothing beats actually being able to practice the skills.

In this webinar, Peter will share his thoughts, based on over 20 years of volunteering, on key leadership skills that you can develop through volunteering and how you can transfer these skills your professional career.

Dennis Gene Jamieson: QUESTION: Is leadership driven top-down or bottom-up?

MARIA T MATA-SIVERA: QUESTION - Do you think that involvement in volunteer oportunities is something cultural? Example here in USA my team or boss push me to do volunteer oportunities in Europe they wanted that I focused in my work. Also in Europe no hiring manager asked my about volunteer oportunities and in USA always.
Ali Gokce Yasar: QUESTION: What and how may you suggest about procedures (and relevant delegation of work) which are supposed to assure safe progress. Meanhile, how to solve the problem of record keeping while works are ongoing fast and furious?
Ramesh Sharma: QUESTION: Please coment on this thought: Making yourself redundant in your current position is seen as negative by many individuals. However, this enables you to move forward and no leave a hole or gap behind. Over a period of time this becomes very visible about you and everyone around you notices that we shared and developed others…

Avinash Vyas: Can volunteer really delegate work? or they are performing delegated work?

RICARDO IVAN PELCASTRE AVILA: QUESTION: how do you deal with reluctant people for leadership?
