Advance Your Career Through Better Relationship Habits
Project managers know that relationship management is essential to project success. Missing a key stakeholder can cause stress, turmoil and delays.
What about the relationships that move your career forward? Do you have productive and effective relationships with executives, project managers and team members? Are you putting thought into your relationships or simply hoping for the best? Your ability (or lack thereof) is one of the most important factors that determine whether or not you will advance to the highest paying roles in the profession.
In this webinar, you will learn strategies and techniques to manage three essential types of relationships:
- Executives and project sponsors: How to turn these powerful individuals into allies
- Peer Project Managers: how to access knowledge and opportunities from your peers
- Project Team Members: why and how to build relationships and talent for the long run
All attendees have the option to request a relationship building toolkit at no cost to continue building their skills.
