Course description

Project managers often overlook people management in favour of technical skills, so this practical two-day course ensures that you get results through your people by focusing on strengthening your interpersonal skill sets.

Creating an effective project organisation structure, team building, influencing and persuading key stakeholders, delivering difficult messages and minimising conflict are some of the key topics explored in this course.

The course will help you to develop your people management skills, both for people working full time on your projects and people who have other responsibilities and demands on their time. You will be able to gain a stronger commitment from the project team and achieve the performance needed to deliver projects successfully.

Note: An optional third day is available (‘Influencing Others – A Practical Workshop to Achieve Impact without Authority’) that will use a detailed behavioural assessment, case studies and ‘hands-on’ interactive exercises to test and improve delegates’ influencing skills.

Target Audience:

Suitable particularly to new project managers who need to use their people skills to establish a project team and manage a range of interpersonal challenges with stakeholders, within and external to the core project team. Those who are looking for technical processes and tools should consider 'An Introduction to Effective Project Management' for an awareness of the underpinning project management methods.
If you are in a project support role then you may wish to consider 'Providing Administrative Support for Projects.
