Virtual Fall PDD - Full Event (2 Days)
Karin Hurt and David Dye
Project management isn’t easy. Managers face aggressive goals and often drive their teams to burn out trying to deliver. Or, employees seek connection and support, so managers focus on relationships and fail to make the numbers. The fallout is stress, frustration, and disengagement, and not just among team members: two-thirds of managers report being disengaged.
Winning Well is a project manager's lifeline for getting the results they need while keeping employees (and themselves) energized and motivated. Filled with humor, straight talk, and hard-won truths, this inspiring and highly interactive program delivers principles and practices to galvanize your team in positive and productive ways.

How do you keep them focused on what matters most without adding to their stress? How do you encourage and support your team when you don’t have all the answers?
