February Chapter Meeting: Lead and Serve Others: Focus on the Team, Not Individuals


Guest Speaker: Johanna Rothman

Lead and Serve Others: Focus on the Team, Not Individuals



Are you trying to create a project team where people are supposed to multitask on several projects with several other teams? Or, you’re supposed to create a totally predictive plan, but your team needs to experiment to deliver what the customers need. Maybe, you don’t have an answer for the reason why the team is doing this work.

What can you do?

In this presentation, Johanna will discuss these specific servant leadership actions: the value the team offers, team-based leadership, and how to create an environment where everyone can succeed.


Key Learning Objectives

  •   Learn to deliver the business outcomes your organization needs when you create an environment that frees people to do their best work    with your leadership.
  •   Become a modern leader who leads and serves others—not controls or directs them.
  •   Deliver the business outcomes your management wants and needs to see.

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. The PMP credential is a critical component, but in recent years the project management discipline has moved towards more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies. In addition to the traditional waterfall approach several new emerging methodologies are now in high demand. Training and credentialing in these methodologies is becoming highly sought after among Project Management Professionals and is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
