Leap Into Projects

Leading Projects & Initiatives Mission Briefing

The Everyday Superhero's Guide to Planning & Delivering High-Stakes Projects and Initiatives

In today’s turbulence and change, projects are an increasingly larger portion of every professional’s job responsibilities. No longer solely the realm of dedicated project managers or department heads, today’s effective professionals must be able to rally around shared purpose, focus limited resources on meaningful outcomes, collaborate and coordinate work across organizational boundaries, and deliver timely results.

This seminar provides a scaled-down, but essential set of project planning, communicating, and control competencies that enables cross-functional teams to better execute with: a coordinated set of priorities; clarity of shared purpose; and a focus on mission-centric results. While compliant with popular standards, this simplified approach empowers professionals to better organize themselves around work, improve inter-departmental collaboration, and achieve project success.
