Effective project leadership involves more than having a good project plan and telling people what to do. It involves effectively engaging with your team to provide them with the resources and the environment to care about and deliver the project’s results. You will analyse different models of leadership, which attempt to explain how some leaders are successful, and their characteristics. Students will consider how their own personality style affects the way they work with others and in teams. Interpersonal awareness, skillful communication and relationship building are key skills to building and guiding a high performing team. Good leaders are aware of the context of their project leadership in their organisation, cultural differences and internal organisational dynamics which can affect performance. We explore how people management systems within organisations structure the way leaders can manage and influence staff to achieve project outcomes within legal and ethical requirements. This interactive course combines theory with practical experience.
