Project Manager is a title that comes with the responsibilities of executive leadership for the project. In the current times, more than ever, there is a need for project managers to lead a project as a business, with sound decision making, strong social and emotional skills, and the ability to see the big picture and solve complex problems. In the midst of this, the individual rarely has time to stop and think about self as an asset and the need focus on continued personal growth.

Is the hustle and bustle of everyday life preventing you from achieving your personal goals and aspirations?  This virtual workshop explores some simple yet essential best practices to help you strive for excellence and achieve your goals—no matter what stage of career you are in. Start making your New Year’s resolutions a reality!
