Be a Project Motivator: Unlocking the Secrets of Strengths-based Project Management

Course Information:
Based on the new book of the same name, this workshop explores how to take the theory of character strengths and apply it to teams and projects. Attendees will explore their own character strengths, what makes them feel good, and what is more of a stretch, and then will extend the understanding and application of character strengths to interacting with others.

The class will also explore the concepts of growth mindset – a key component of successful change – appreciative inquiry, influence – the project manager’s friend – and character strengths from the perspective of how to make them work as a project manager, team member or other stakeholder. Throughout the workshop, there will be opportunities to practice & apply the skills.

All attendees are invited to take the free VIA Character strengths assessment here:  Attendees will use their personal results throughout the workshop. No one will be asked to share their personal strengths.
