Are You Too Soft?

Most Project Manager/Business Analyst leaders are not consistently willing to make the tough and unpopular project-related decisions, even though their instincts warn them that they are not taking the most effective action.

Witness examples of PM/BA actions (or inactions) that are indicative of too-soft behaviour.  Will you recognize familiar behaviour?

You do not have to be rude, insensitive, arrogant, or a bully
To avoid being too soft!

None of these attributes are acceptable …ever!

Come prepared to rethink what constitutes effective project management and business analyst leadership behaviour.

Course Learning Objectives Include:

  • How to become a more effective leader
  • How to avoid being too soft
  • How to become a more effective leader

With the Course You Will Receive:

  • Download – Power Snippets
  • Personalized Certificate of Attendance
  • Copy of Presentation Slides
