Project leadership should not strictly focus on logistics. Your project leaders should be able to motivate your project team, build relationships, and sustain the performance of the team throughout every project.

Use the Project Leadership Assessment (PLA) as an innovative learning instrument for evaluating participants' leadership behaviors across five vital skill areas. This learning tool is perfect for anyone who has project management responsibilities, regardless of their title or reporting relationship to the project team.

How It Works

Using a current company project as a mental reference, participants respond candidly to a 25-item assessment. The Observer Form then provides participants with an honest perspective on their project leadership skills. This combination creates the most accurate picture of a project leader's effectiveness. An activity and action planning sequence then allows project leaders to identify actions for building their strengths and improving less-developed skills.

Uses and Applications

The PLA helps participants focus on the five essential interpersonal skills for project leadership:

  1. Encouraging open communication
  2. Inspiring a positive outlook
  3. Influencing effectively
  4. Managing conflict
  5. Developing the team

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Identify project leadership strengths and areas for improvement
  • Understand five interpersonal skills critical to effective project leadership
  • Apply leadership skills at each project phase
  • Develop action steps for leading projects
