Topic: 
"You Can't Manage the Project If You're Not Managing the People"

Work would be so much easier if all you had to do was figure out the
parameters of the project, delegate assignments to the appropriate
staff, make a few suggestions along the way and then present the
final product to senior management that would applaud your efforts
and your results. But managing the project means managing the
people and that has become a more challenging and complex task
than ever before.
Manage the Project/Manage the People is a fast paced interactive
presentation that offers proven strategies for getting the most out of
your people. Ways to manage your team so they will voluntarily give
the extra effort that is the difference between success and mediocrity.
Keys to getting the most out of each generational cohort. The things
you need to say and do to attract the best people, keep them
motivated and achieve your and the organization’s goals.
Key Topics
- Giving feedback that motivates performance
- Managing in a matrixed environment
- Networking effectively to achieve results
- Engaging your team and engendering loyalty
