“Deeper Issues" that Hurt Leadership, Collaboration & Project Management

Everyone knows that there is something deeper than behavior that matters a lot. Some call it motivation, others call it character, and many call it attitude. Everyone knows that when this deeper thing, whatever it is, is off in some way—when one's attitude is poor, for example—this deep deficiency undercuts personal integrity, hurts teamwork, collaboration, project management and diminishes performance. The trouble is that most people lack clarity about what this deeper thing is and how to change it. But what if these deeper matters could be managed concretely? What if these issues have seemed mystical and soft only because we have lacked a language that equips us to accurately perceive and address these deeper matters? This 4 hour session clarifies the deeper issue and answers the fundamental questions to optimize collaboration and outcomes in projects despite the constraints one faces. Key Takeaways - Participants learn, apply and leave with a robust framework and tools to heighten their awareness and nurture and embed practices that strengthen collaboration and optimize project results.
