The old adage of ‘Leaders are Born? is just not true.  Leaders are developed over time through: knowledge of self; diverse subject matters, mentoring and guidance; critical decision making in times of change or uncertainty. True leaders pay it forward, are able see beyond the forest and inspire individuals to perform beyond expectations.  This is not a class of skills assessment; it is a practical approach to developing the deader within you.  In this class you will learn: • Leadership practices and styles • What will make you a leader • Identify and act on barriers to success • Break through the culture of your organization to succeed • Delegating – how far; how much; and leadership support • Practical communications • Mentoring – for yourself and new employees

An old saying about project work among experienced project managers is “the first 90% of a project is the easiest, the second 90% is the hardest”. Getting organized and managing your time are skills that may benefit anyone at work or at home. These skills are normally acquired as we find out what does and does not work at the expense of numerous challenges or failures. Learn time tested approaches to prioritizing your work and managing your time, free up more time in your day and accomplish more...doing it on your time.
