21 Nov '12 | 2 PDUs | Panel Discussion - Leadership and Decision Making
How to nurture Leadership and Decision Making traits?


The session is not meant to address technical questions or issues. The session will cover only general management areas. For the current month, the discussion will be focused on Leadership and Decision Making Skills. History shows us that only very few are born leaders. Many other successful persons have learnt and developed the leadership traits.

Project Managers are expected lead the project to success. Leadership is a must trait for the project managers since they are answerable to all the stake holders. Leaders are expected to take tough and timely decisions. Many projects fail either because of indecision or decisions not taken in time. Therefore, every project manager must nurture leadership and decision-making qualities.

SPMI organizes this panel discussion headed by two experienced project managers and an experienced facilitator. Join this interactive discussion session, share the challenges faced by you and learn from the experts on harnessing your leadership skills.
