- Format: Classroom
- Duration: 5 days
- Language: English
Projects are becoming increasingly complex and sophisticated, but project work is sometimes performed by competent professionals who may have little or no leadership training in a project environment, particularly in the skill of conflict management. Modern organizations cannot afford anything less than competent project management and project team members must work positively together and recognize conflict as an opportunity for making better decisions. Establishing and maintaining team leadership skills, productive work team environments and leading teams in activities to meet goals is a challenging, every-day part of a project leader’s life.
This programme focuses on some project leadership skills necessary in project situations where a diverse group of team members works to achieve productive success. Tight budgets and deadlines demand high levels of performance from a team that is frequently changing, often diverse in its makeup and where the working environment presents fresh challenges on a daily basis. Conflicts can be frustrating, even painful, but dealing with conflicts is a project leader’s role. Some people want to avoid conflicts altogether rather than try to resolve them and that is not the best way to have a successful project outcome. Conflicts, if properly resolved, provide some good since they represent diverse views of a project. These diverse views can work to move a project forward if handled correctly. Properly handled conflicts can make team members more mature and team members appreciate other people’s points of view. Conflict resolution skills are a must have for today’s project professionals.
