"Why Don't They Just Get it Done?": Leadership vs. Management
with Bernadette Donnelly
Which is better, managing or leading? In truth, the functions of leading and managing overlap and interlace, especially in Project Management. To meet the triple constraint of time, budget, and scope, all functions of leading and managing are critical. Both are required and neither is better.
In this presentation participants discover the benefits of managing and leading projects and people. The presentation provides tools and strategies so participants will come away with a better understanding of how they lead and how to lead others. They will learn and practice being more self-aware, how to manage their mindset, and how to develop social connections that build trust and loyalty. They will discover their thinking style, their communicating style, and how to use that understanding to influence with integrity.
