Hudson Valley Chapter of PMI Presents:

Neal Whitten’s
No-Nonsense Advice for Successful Projects

[book cover]140411-one-day-seminarPopular speaker and best-selling PM author Neal Whitten takes leadership and project management to a personal level by revealing leading-edge best practices that make all the difference between leading consistently successful projects and playing the victim with troubled projects. If you came to Neal and asked, “I only have one day of my life for our paths to cross. What can you tell me from all you have learned from a 35+ year career that will make my projects and career more successful and rewarding?” This workshop is the one day that Neal would share with you. Successful projects — and careers — don’t just happen, they are made to happen.

Focusing mostly on leadership and soft skills, this thought-provoking seminar reveals choices to make and behaviors to adopt that are invaluable in helping you become a successful project manager and leader. The workshop is based largely on Neal’s best-selling book, Neal Whitten’s No-Nonsense Advice for Successful Projects. Learn to think for yourself, re-energize your initiative and drive, and take control of your destiny. It’s not about the ability of those around you to lead; it’s about your ability to lead, despite what is happening around you.

Topics Include:

Leadership styles • being too soft • managing priorities • fostering interpersonal communications • boldness • escalations • integrity • accountability • professional behavior and recognizing professional immaturity • dealing with criticism • how to make long-term project commitments • running an effective meeting • duties of the effective project manager • the need to fail • dealing with difficult people • and so much more.
