Overview

 

If there weren’t people involved, my project would have been delivered on time and under budget!
Sound familiar?

Unfortunately, the reality is that people are involved in the execution of every project and not even the most sophisticated software or project template can change that fundamental truth. Communication, interpersonal skills, and an understanding of team dynamics are a project manager’s greatest asset for driving optimal project performance, and the MBTI tool can fast forward that competence exponentially.

This webcast will present an overview of personality type and how the different types can be leveraged to form a team that harnesses the best of all of them.

What You Will Learn

  • How Project managers can use personality type to drive project team performance
  • The four MBTI(R) dichotomies and how they relate to project management
  • How knowledge of the MBTI assessment can help you realize outstanding project results when you have no formal authority
  • Personality type and its role in managing multi-cultural project teams

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
