PMI Atlanta Chapter - Elevate Your Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence (Virtual)

Elevate Your Leadership Through Emotional Intelligence (Virtual)

Friday, July 15, 2022
9:00am - 1:00pm

As the project management profession continues to increase in complexity, there is a demand for Leaders. With the changing business climate, the yardstick for measurement is the emotional competence of Project Managers and Leaders. This seminar will examine the challenges/issues presented to Project managers and how emotional intelligence helps drive success. Leadership excellence cannot be achieved by technical competence but by character and Emotional Intelligence(EI).

In today’s changing business environment, Project managers not only need to manage global, virtual and multi-cultural projects, but also establish a direction and align with the organization vision. Successful Leadership is a dynamic process requiring both cognitive and emotional competencies. The globalization of workplace puts special premium on Emotional Intelligence for Project managers. Several studies demonstrate that strong leadership style and emotional intelligence leads to the success in implementing large and complex global initiatives.

This Half-day Seminar addresses why Emotional Intelligence is an important skill required for excellence in Leadership. As Emotional Intelligence is an important skill under Leadership – the core competency of the PMI Talent Triangle, project/program/portfolio managers need to acquire this skill. The seminar will outline how the Emotional Intelligence Framework is central to leadership & will discuss how you can manage your emotions & stress through EI. Case Studies and social media clips will be used during the seminar.
