Are you paying attention to what’s going on around you?

Project managers are being asked to become more strategic while taking on the roles of both business leader and change agent for the organization, on top of actually getting project work done! The demands are shifting and we need to work together to make sure you can not only survive this shift in mindset and expectations, but THRIVE.

I have designed a system that is based on the work I’ve done to coach and develop thousands of project managers over the last 20 years in organizations of all shapes and sizes, across industries. This proven system will help you shed some of the misconceptions about leadership, deal directly with touchy issues like politics and change resistance, and prepare you to accelerate your career growth.

Thank you again for your time.  The suggestions you provided were extremely helpful and I will definitely incorporate them into my PMO proposal presentation.
